Zoom Zoom Zoom! - Paris Style

Doesn't everyone scoot around Paris in high heels?

( I snapped her sitting outside a café near my apartement last June. Didn't even have to get out of my chair!)

This one is dedicated to my scooter lovin' friend Chuck in Seattle!

Not THAT cafe? The one populated with Jeehobbs in leopard skin jackets...?

Sexy scooter! If I had a scooter like that I'd always wear high heels!

All the best

Keith

Maya said...

That looks difficult to me!

Starman said...

She may be stylish, but that's about as dumb an outfit as there can be for riding a scooter.

Virginia said...

Mary,
I have looked closer and I do believe she has a skirt on and had it pulled up somehow!

JB,
No, another one! ;)

Keith,
And you'd look darn cute!

Maya,
No kidding.

Starman,
What has practicality got to do with anything when it comes to chic???

M said...

Definitely a French girl! Great "capture" Virginia!

Shell Sherree said...

They may be high, but they look very practical for scooting ~ nice secure straps holding them on. Wonderful, V!!

Rob said...

Maybe they double as a scooter kickstand?

Daryl said...

I dated a guy with a Lambrettra .. zoom was more like PUTT PUTT PUTT but it was fun

claudine said...

Est-ce possible de faire du scooter avec des talons hauts!? Je pense que c'est très dangereux!

Alexa said...

Apparently some people will risk life and limb in order to be chic! (I'd be doing that just by trying to walk in heels that high.) Nice capture, V, even if you didn't have to contort yourself to get it.

How Italian Riviera in the early 60's of you!

Waiting anxiously for the light to turn green to be the first to start. My guess, anyway.

Chuck Pefley said...

Italian girls wear heels like that, too, but often with skirts as proportionally short as these heels are tall -:)

Thanks for thinking of me!

Virginia said...

Chuck,
Glad you liked it!

Ciel,
Oui, so she could get away from my camera!

Paul,
I think you're right.

Alexa,
For me, the heels would be risking life and limb. :)

Claudine,
Oui, très dangereux.

Rob and Shell,
Good point!

M,
French girl...check!

Daryl,
She's a fashionista, oui?

High heels on a scooter, cool lady !

James said...

That is so Paris! I noticed the high heals right away. :)
I bet you were at the Cafe Sully.

Peter said...

I scoot alright, but high heels…? :-)
