Doesn’t this feel like Paris, 1968?

My New Obsession….Turn of the Century Italian Photos Cards

Could these be more beautiful?

 

I bought a stack on these, all different sizes and from different studios, from the flea market in Milan.

 

Apparently, studios across Italy would glue the images on extra thick card stock (suitable for display but cheaper than framing?) and cover the back in grand self-promotuion.

 

These must’ve meant so much to the people that gave and received them.  They really make me dream AND make me want to figure out how to do these today!

 

I’ll be posting more of these over the next few weeks.

On the Street…..Ave. Winston Churchill, Paris

This look perfectly captures the struggle between Spring and Winter that we find ourselves in this time of year.

 

In much of Europe ,and some of the U.S.,  it is cool in the morning and evening but warm-ish in the afternoon.  It was in the high 60′s the other day here in New York, then back to an absolute ice box the next day.

 

Don’t you agree that , like it or not, an outfit like this (it’s mix of colors, textures, fabric weight and patterns) is sooo much more interesting to look at and consider than another all-black-monk-drab that fashion people wrap themselves in?
