Pas de photographies - Colette


Colette, a very trendy shop, was close to our apartment.  Mary and I stopped in so that I could catch a few photos. "Non  Madame!"   Well,  les toilettes was very funky and fun,  so Mary and I snapped a few when no one was watching!

Their website is funky and fun too, V, so we'll give them top marks for consistency. You and Mary fit in with the vibe beautifully.

Love this. And yes I often get that response too in posh shops.

There's a photo for you on Menton Daily Photo today, dear Virginia. x

You're lucky Inspector Poirot didn't pop his head out of a cubicle and said 'Non madam!!' Nice work Virginia!

I adore this fun photograph of you and Mary, and one can see the two of you must have loads of fun together!
I bought something at Colette...just to get one of their blue and white carrier bags...because it is my name after all!! I used the exact same font on my business card..but in pale pink and white..turned out lovely. have fun

What rascals you two are... but I already knew that! It takes one to know one. Cute shot of you both, ma chère.

Owen said...

I agree with Genie... rascals ! Imagine that, in the ladies room !

Very funny !!!
Vous êtes super "rigolottes" toutes les deux ! J'adore

Starman said...

I wonder why it is that some shop people are so afraid to let someone take a photo? Maybe they think you're trying to steal their soul? Or the secrets of their wares?

VenetiaMicio said...

Virginia, rigolottes = amusantes, drôles, mignonnes !!!

I love the cat headstones at the cemetary. And of course all the other stuff in Paris. How could I not? thanks for stopping by to visit me by the way!

Women in black capture Paris one shot at a time!

Mary's little compact is much easier for sneaking forbidden snaps. That is why I usually carry a little guy along with the big bazooka. I have never been in a ladies' room with Mary and you before. I am blushing.

Virginia said...

Jack, I had the little guy ( 50mm prime) on here. The big bazooka is what gets me in trouble. I have a whole series I might just name "Through the Window". I had so many times I couldn't get the shot inside for one reason or another, so I was forced to press the lens on the window and have at it. Next trip to Paris, you just come on along and join us in Colette. BTW, there are many toilettes in paris where the men and women are ........sort of close. I"m getting more at ease with that but I draw the line on some facilities . You can figure that out.
