La Dame en Bleu

I was shopping with a friend the other day when I spotted this woman in blue through the shop window.

Not quite my style, but I admire women who have the guts to dress like this.

And you?

The title is a reference to Michel Delville's 1973 film with Michel Piccoli and Lea Massari, which you can read about here.   It's a story about obsession....  Nothing good on Youtube!

You won't see this in Ocala! As you know, we have people wearing blue hair which would go well with the coat and head scarf, but...

All she needs is a blue purse!

Will reluctantly admit that my first thought was "madwoman of Chaillot" and my second was "Smurfette's grandma." On the other hand, she gets lots of points for sheer chutzpah!

J'adore mais es-tu restée assez longtemps pour savoir par quoi elle a été tentée et vers quoi s'est porté son choix?? :-)
