    I love it. Before I go any further I have to admit that I am constantly on google trying to find pictures of you and what you wore, you are my online mentor/icon in life, dress and all else [may sound stalkerish – but it is not at all intended in that manner]. Anyways I am excited about your new experiment!

    p.s. I did a post about you on my blog http://www.lighningjusthittwice.blogspot.com

    Enjoy your day :-)

    LUNA! Quite a wintry outfit dont you think? Vintage is always best in Paris, would love to her about your findings.

    The Blue of the big door,
    Blue of the shoes,
    Blue of the hat,
    Blue perhaps
    Of the dress,
    Color for a Queen !
    Blue sky in the spirit,
    Blue sea in the eyes,

    Brown of the sand,
    Brown of the land,

    Everything is in the hand.

    Like the H igh of H ermes.

    I have seen you many times before and never could find any information about you. I have always wondered who is this woman that embraces two of my greatest loves, art and fashion, and looks so impeccable. So glad to have found you and this wonderful site. Now I have one of my inspirations readily available at just a click away. Thank you!
