Paris on a Rainy Day

O.K., I have to admit creating a blog is not easy!!! I have a wonderful young french

girl, Kenza, who is being extremely patient with coaching me along. However, the

technicalities are tricky. So, bear with me these first few days and hopefully before

long we will have something more coherent.

What you are seeing above is what I wore to my boutique, CRIMSON, today.

Jeans are my most important wardrobe article. Can't help it. Born in Texas, raised

in Texas and love Texas. So, we are talking roots here. When creating something for

my boutique, I always align the look with a jean. If I can't see it happening, it does not

get produced.......so glad I am the boss!!!

When choosing my look, I always NEED something a little off to make me feel authentic.

What the hell does that mean you are asking? I want to feel like I am in my clothes.

They belong to me........not some designer who said.........."Here, wear this". So, obviously,

a little bit of old, new, never borrowed and not always blue.

You will notice, I have lots of textures going on here. Girly pinky silk top, black

cashmere cardigan with grosgrain detail on the pockets, black grosgrain belt with

rhinestone belt buckle and "plus important" my vintage Levi jean.

Shoes were my gold and black Chanel ballerinas and my bag was this season's

Nina Ricci. So, what I am hoping to convey here, is that at age 62, a girl (no age limit

for being called a girl) can have some fun and imagination with what she wants to wear.

Not looking for yes or no's.........just giving you some options, some ideas. Hope it helps

and gives you food for thought.

Cool and rainy day in Paris, so also had to throw on a short black Burberry raincoat

that I stole from my daughter's closet. A classic for her and for me....

Hopefully, soon I will learn to send more than one picture at a time and I can

give you some pictures of Paris along with the "looks".

Bonsoir.........je vous embrasse, Linda

P.S. Things are looking up, there is actually the picture I took from

my balcony this evening......
