How well do you know me?
Quick! Answer the following question: What are The Directrice’s favorite things?

Numerous readers have offered the advice that one cannot have an excess of denim garments: shirts, dressed, jackets, in addition to jeans. I tend to agree.
Everyone needs a denim bustier.

I firmly believe in using your beautiful things and not saving things “for best” — because those occasions happen too rarely. But, I may never wear these shoes out of the house because they are too fabulous to put at risk. The world is a hostile place . . . particularly for shoes.

Have a fantastic weekend!
