We Haven't Forgotten About You...

No, we have not. Hello, Anthropologie... I usually don't look at the site for a while so that when I do I'm overwhelmed with new exciting things...Like all of these.

Something about these images strike me as very French.

And I'm in a very French mood lately... I'm reading the novel 'Suite Francaise' by Irene Nemirovsky. I'm half way through and not wanting it to end. It's a story that follows the lives of various different people from all walks of life as they flee Paris during WWII. At the same time, I'm been researching my Fashion of the 1940s book. Very inspiring indeed.

While I wish I could have the grace and chic style of a French woman, it will be tough here... Just walking to the train station in order to get to the archive today, I sweat all over my clothes, my hair blown every which way and still managed to blister my feet in my 'comfortable shoes'. Ah yes, it will take a very long time to be fabulous...

For now I'll enjoy looking at these shoes.
