Karen (author of the delightful style blog Of A Certain Age) and I have been trying to get together for months, and finally managed to sync up our schedules this week for lunch at my favorite local spot, Le Saint Amour. It was a nice day and the patio was packed so we sat inside and had a very handsome and charming waiter all to ourselves. The salads were fantastic too.
Doesn't Karen look fabulous?? The brooch she's wearing was a dramatic lion's head, and she'd also added a studded belt and fun cocktail ring. She really knows her own look and works it. We talked a bit (well, more than a bit...I'm afraid it was a "busman's holiday" for Karen) about my recent wardrobe woes. Karen astutely diagnosed my problem, surmising, "I see ALL classic and NO twist." (Absolutely spot on, and "twist" is what's been missing lately in my mix.) She's really good at this Image Consultant thing, mes amis.
