French girl?


Must be a French girl woman?

I barely caught this one! 
Truthfully, I was going for the dog
and then was surprised at the knee britches, the scarf,
and... tell me that those tights do NOT match the scarf!

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

Peut-être française... Certainement excentrique... Ne passe pas inaperçue en tous cas! Bravo Genie! Une belle pièce à ajouter à ton tableau de chasse! - Veronique (French Girl in Seattle) PS: merci de ta visite aujourd'hui!

Matching stockings and scarfe... fashion statement or faux pas?

this is Belgium said...

knee bridge ! did not know that they were "en vogue" again .. the dog does not seem to be very sure about the fashion statement...

Malyss said...

Le style Leopard... Not my cup of tea!

s.c said...

Perhaps something more for the sartorialist but a great capture it is. Thanks for showing

At least she attracts attention, but fashionable....

Elizabeth Eiffel said...

Now here is a lady with a strong a character and enormous self-confidence.............

brattcat said...

but is she really french?

Birdman said...

They CAUGHT my eye, for sure.

Virginia said...

I'm saying French but I'm with Joe, this could be a faux pas. Leave the tights and knee britches at home, Keep the coat and scarf and honey, put on some nice black slacks and you're good to go!

M said...

I think this is either a fashion faux pas or a fashion misstatement! What a find, Genie!

Les rêves d'une boulangère (Brittany) said...

Well she's certainly bold with fashion! Not sure if she's French though..

Cute dog!

I'm not sure. If the photo stopped at the hem of her coat, she looks French. But since it doesn't, I would guess she's not. The bow on the britches distracts for one thing. To my eye the outfit doesn't look balanced and there's something about her shoes that feels wrong. Above all, too much pattern.

Merisi said...

Wonderful capture, and the dog seems to be aware that he fits the color scheme perfectly! ;-)

The britches remind me of the Mozart impersonators trying to sell concert tickets here in Vienna.

Sylvia K said...

Terrific capture as always, Genie, have to chuckle at all the comments -- the dog is adorable, the woman -- ???. Ah, well, whatever floats your boat, I guess! Hope you have a lovely weekend!

Hugs
Sylvia

Starman said...

Looks like a match to me.

Alexa said...

A bit matchy-matchy, IMHO. On the other hand, if you were a tourist who wanted to pass for une vrai Parisienne you'd probably do well to borrow un chien!

Joe said...

This thread is great to read with a cup of coffee on a Sunday morning, :-).

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

The pup is quite chic and might have even been seen last week at Westminster, but Madame should have chosen more wisely her attire below the knees... just saying...

Bises,
Genie

I must admit I would have been a little distracted by the knee britches too Genie, It's certainly not something you expect to see. Love the look on the dogs face like.."what was she thinking!!"

Halcyon said...

It's a little much if you ask me. But the dog is cute! :)

Rob and Mandy said...

Almost a cliche

Bibi said...

I agree with Alexa...chic pup, but a bit overweight, and I don't think it's just his/her fur. So maybe he's not French either! ;)

Randy said...

Excellent scene. Love the window display.

Harriet said...

You were definitely on your toes to get this photo. Loved reading all the commentaries.... those 'leggins' are a bit much for me.

The Armchair Parisian said...

Guess she didn't get the memo about how ONE animal print accessory is enough! Ditch the leggings, keep the scarf - if you must.

Ninny said...

The dog is French, the woman? Hmmmmm. I could look at that beautiful dog all day.

Kelley Carey MacDonald said...

Well, she actually looks American - or maybe other European to me, but let me say this - she had FUN dressing this day. And I'm for that!

Fashion, Art and other fancies said...

French? I think not!

Mary said...

She's... interesting. :) I like the scarf, but with the tights, not so much. But to each her own. We all have our own unique style. I love the shop window. So sparkly and fun, and her dog is adorable and well groomed! ;)
