I feel like it has been ages since I’ve done a real Friday@Flore, so it felt great to out and back at my favorite haunt, eavesdropping on the Italian gentleman and his very elegant lady friend who was wearing a gorgeous dress that looked like it had walked off the Céline runway on to the Paris streets. She was from Colombia and they were both here to look at the FIAC contemporary art show. Beautiful people doing beautiful things. Sigh…

But the real people were fun to watch, too. The girls in their jaunty scarves, choosing bright colors to stave off the winter blues. It has been grey in Paris, folks. Very grey. So grey we’re all starting to feel like a pair of warm flannel pants rotting away in the bottom of the wardrobe.







And just to give you an idea of how much cheering we’re needing, everyone seemed to lighting up the scene with a splash of red. Of the 36 photos I shot 1/3 had people wearing a bit of red. Who knew? Time to run out and do a little wardrobe cherry picking!








But even more popular than the color red, the true look du jour requires a scarf. Any scarf will do, from the big and bulky cosy look to the light jaunty bohemian style. Because its not just about fashion, it is scarf weather for one and all.





















And after all that fashion, I was happy to get this quintessential Paris shot, even if there was no red in sight.

  1. great composition on the Parisien
    His right hand is set as if he was holding a cigarette….and a trompe l’oeil is created because of the curve on the smart car.
    It looks as if the bench is sloping giving the illusion that he is waiting for the magical mystery tour to take off if only he could get his cane to turn into a harry potter like broom…..

  2. My neighbor who’s a prof in architecture and Italian studies is also going for parents’ weekend to visit Her freshman son at the Univ. of Chicago, and so I think you’ll be gone from Flore, during my visit in a couple of weeks. (?) I was hoping to stroll past and say ‘thanks’ for your being a mainstay on tripadvisor the past few years. (Rue St-Grégoire de T. is so close.) You have really embraced your parisienne life more than some of us when we had the chance! But, it’s also loads more fun this century with 80-year olds in jeans and smiley faces floating in the background.
