And tweeds, tweeds, tweeds!



And tweeds, tweeds, tweeds!
So enthuses Elsa Schiaparelli when outlining her style guidelines in her autobio Shocking Pink, which I talked about last weekend on this blog.

This, and Paris's biting cold, has made me want to wear again my dear tweedy Nina Ricci dress (the "troubadour" model). It's wonderfully warm and stylish; to make it look less ladylike (how I abhorr laldylike outfits!), I fasten the skirt with a punk safety pin and wear it with a gray hoodie.

j'aime bien l'épaisseur du tissu et son grain. j'aime la ligne pure et dépouillée du vêtement.

I love the picture that shows the texture of the fabric, one feels like touching it. Great picture - and beautiful dress.
