Printemps - le reflet




A dress of pale blue feathers and fringed silk tweed,


a backdrop of trees,


and a wistful glance down the boulevard.





Printemps

Oh, the Parisian shop windows!!! This dress is a creation of Karl (Lagerfeld) I guess.

Bienvenue chez French Girl in Seattle... said...

And your pictures is very good!

Cette jeune femme est comme toi, Genie, elle semble rêver à Paris avec beaucoup d'enthousiasme. Toi, tu es la meilleure de nos ambassadrices, et je vais demander à notre ministre de la Culture de penser à toi pour la prochaine distribution des médailles de Légion d'Honneur.
Au nom de la France, MERCI!

Beautiful. Just the thing to see before fall comes--beautiful, beautiful tweed!

dive said...

What a little rebel she is, standing there, hands on hips in her beautiful dress having just kicked over the chairs in a fit of pique.

Harriet said...

This photo gives new meaning to that expression 'shake a tail feather', n'est-ce pas?

Malyss said...

The best sum up for this shopping street!!

Pam Holnback said...

What a great shot!

Seems like an iconic Parisian moment.

Gerald (Hyde DP) said...

ah what a lovely window

Starman said...

Interesting furniture arrangement.

Kris said...

The French really know how to dress a window. That is a gorgeous dress. That's what I'd call "strike a pose"!

Your gift was mailed yesterday and you should have it early next week.

Have a great weekend.

This picture an reflection is so hard to accomplish when you try. Your a genius behind the camera. I love this picture even more that I love the dress.

The Armchair Parisian said...

Love this shot. I have always liked an artful reflection :-) Looks like she kicked the furniture over in frustration, body language, hands on hips...

Dorian Susan said...

Fantastic...so many layers to see.

Fábio Martins said...

The body language of the "model" was nice!

'Tsuki said...

Elle a la tête dans les nuages, la petite dame ; elle voit la vie en bleu ! :D

Nice work on that picture, Genie : Paris Couture has no secret for you !

One of my favourite ways of looking at the world, reflected in a shop window. And what a view on the Parisian world this one provides! From street glimpses to a peek at a fit of Parisienne pique to a fashion statement in tweed and feathers.
Excellent find.

Jack said...

Ah, Genie, you would look great in this dress! Did it come in a size 2? A fine reflection today. Have a grand weekend. I will be trying to hide from Irene.

Vagabonde said...

That dress looks a bit warm right now with our 96+ weather. I saw that you talked about the Musée Grévin in your last post. That makes me nostalgic. My mom used to take me there very often when I was growing up. They had “the enchanted forest” where you would stand in the dark and lights would go on the trees land make terrible noise like thunder – I was terrified but would always want to go there. Then they had a magic show and flea trainers. It was always a treat to go there – we lived walking distance from it – so long ago.

Shell Sherree said...

So much to love here, not to mention the dress. Very pretty, Genie!

GreensboroDailyPhoto said...

Not to forget the cane back chair........ iconic....... all oh so French!

James said...

Awesome reflection! The window display and the reflections go together very nicely!

Kate said...

What fun it would be to wear that dress (with that figure!) at a festive"do" in Paris!
