Where did all the glamour go?

                       Beauty on Parade by Rolf Armstrong  1930's

 I seem to see people totally relaxing about the way they dress.  I remember the time when we wore our best clothes on the airplane and today not at all.

It does take a little extra effort but it is so worth it.  As I live in two countries, the difference is obvious to me.  Here in America we seem to think shorts and tee shirts can go anywhere, not in France.  Oh the good old days.

If you remember any of these looks, please send me an email. I would love to know that I am not alone on this issue.

I travel a lot and usually wear black, a nice sweater and good fitting pants makes for a comfortable and pretty outfit. Don't forget adding a shawl or scarf.  It looks good and is practical on a plane that might be too cold. 

If you have a friend who might be interested in reading about my American French life, please let me know.  I would love to share my thoughts with your friends. 

I hope you like the images I have selected for you.

Great cafes you may not have been to yet....I have tried them all and thoroughly enjoyed them.  I hope you do too.
