I want to sweep through the lobby of the Hotel Georges-V Paris on my way to my suite, stopping briefly at the front desk with instructions to "Do please hold all my calls and send up some caviar and cheesecake immediately" delivered in a low husky voice with heavily-accented English that startles me, not caring that my ruby red lipstick has bled into the heavily powdered spider lines around my mouth, nor that I don't even like caviar. With a dismissive yet graceful flourish of my gloved hand I disappear into the lift. Ah, Jacques, he understands my needs so well.
Would people even care that I'm wearing an old oversized coat turned inside out with a single new button sewn way off to the side near my neck to size it down and had the pockets ripped off? Or that this thrifted faux fur hat, as big or even bigger than my head, has a scarf stuffed in the crown to keep it from sliding down over my eyes? Or that the coat sleeves extend far beyond my pale fingertips? No! Rather - Non!
Did it matter that I had to dodge moneyseekers and spitters on the sidewalk and dodge puddle grunge on my way to the coffee shop? NON! Or that there were babies crying and businessmen talking too loud into the air when I got there? Um, okay, yeah, that really bugged me.And then when I got home I worked.
Dreaming is free. If you can't dream it, it will never happen.
Where do your clothing dreams take you lately?
"Ah, Jacques, do tell those autograph hounds to keep their distance. I'm not who they think I am. And lock the door on your way out...."
- coat, inside out, several sizes too big, pockets removed with button added, old
- boots, retail, very forgiving of a persnickety toe
- oversized hat, thrifted
- scarf stuffed into hat, thrifted
- Chanel sunglasses darling, hand-me-over (not to be confused with "hand it over!!")
- camera, for sudden street style photography, but I can't find subjects these dark days
I tried to post this earlier but Blogger wouldn't let me put up my photo. I had to do a workaround.
*When I say today I'm referring to last week. I have a different post for Patti's Visible Monday...
