feeling festive

Doesn't Grace Kelly look fabulously festive in her white coat and red hat? I think so. And look at that smile. So beautiful.

This photo reminds me of an elderly lady I saw walking down the street yesterday, on her husband's arm, near the post office. She was wearing a white blouse and long red pencil skirt and a double strand of pearls, dressed to the nines, out for her holiday shopping. She looked lovely. People just don't dress like they used to.

Wonderful photo -- and a charming story.

I'd never seen this one before. So chic.

I agree that people don't dress the way they used to, and it's a pity.
