Belle du Jour...maturity and pink...



oh yes..........

.....when Catherine Deneuve appeared in the 1967 Luis Bunel French film, Belle du Jour, the clothes made the ladies sigh......
Not only was her wardrobe designed by Yves Saint Laurent....but master shoemaker Roger Vivier designed her shoes.......


The Andrew Geller pumps in brown alligator have a big button detail on the toe that is so inspired by, most likely, the Vivier pilgrim pumps....these are in my etsy shop....
Andrew Geller was a high-end shoemaker and these likely came from Nordstrom...back in the day...



here's a lovely blog post from www.unefemme.net
that discusses the Pilgrim buckle shoe and well, the blog itself is on my burgeoning blogroll of sites that discuss um...
the persons of maturity and wisdom...
oh yes. Life after 50 is so much better for so many reasons.....
a sense of who you are...many illusions have died and a peaceful soul begins to grow..
Wow!
that was pretty new-agey...
but wisdom is comforting...and so are lower heels.
Leave the stilettos to the young girls looking for love in all the wrong places...


and....This week in my etsy shop I have a stunning Emma Domb formal, with a size 32" waist.

The dress is a confection in pink lace, long poofy princess skirt and delicately proper in a peek-a-boo sort of way.........
