Paris Rouge LXXIV - L'echarpe rouge


Last January you will remember that Mary, Peter and I visited Shauna von Giesbrecht's beautiful jewelry and textile shop in Montmartre.  In addition to her original jewelry that she handcrafts, she also offers some gorgeous handwoven textile designs. This red scarf in the window was almost more than I could resist.  I'm hoping that one day I'll have this, or a similar one wrapped around my neck in Paris!

Comme les jeans : neuve et abimée. C'est la mode.

Oh! so classy - and it comes in your colour Virginia - a must have when next in Paris!

Beautiful, bright, bold RED creation! It's really artsy fartsy, V de B!
Bon weekend

She definitely had some delightful concoctions in her atelier ... I may succumb to temptation when next in Paris if she still has the teal woven jacket ... I just didn't want to take that one off! However, my dollars couldn't match her euros.

One of kind, I imagine. Oui? You'd turn lots of French heads in that creation, V! (And even more American ones if you wore it here)

If you buy it, you will always have Paris Rouge wherever you are.

Hmm, I'm not sure it's my style. Of course, the red does match my eyes...

Well, it is YOUR rouge color. C'mon, girl, treat yourself. You deserve it.

That scarf is GORGEOUS. I am a sucker for a scarf or pashmina...I have many....and I live in a climate where I can only wear them for about a month± out of the year!
