I am a little tired today, and thought about making this post the blogging equivalent of a silent movie — no words. This idea amuses me. Some day, there will be an epic contest . . . in which I will put up photos and ask you to supply the text and captions. It will be like a New Yorker cartoon contest for die-hard Directrice readers.
On to business. What’s all this then?
The Photographer and I ventured outside last weekend with the camera. We did not venture far.
So here I am, wearing a utility jacket and jeans and something else. A third piece.
Pinterest sends me lots of pictures of driveways. The emails generally begin, “We think you might like these boards” or “We think you might like these pins.” For the longest time I wondered why Pinterest thought I would be so interested in photos of driveways, and then realized that I often take photos in my driveway.*
Did you know that there are Pinterest boards devoted to driveways? Is this what happens after the kitchen has been renovated? Or is it a new fetish? Regardless, in pegging me as a driveway enthusiast, Pinterest has unwittingly revealed the limits of artificial intelligence.
Back to the third piece.
Here is a better view. It’s actually two pieces: a floral bustier over a voile blouse. But clearly the bustier is the piece I am talking about.
It’s fun, right? A little Marie Antoinette for Casual Friday.
I think this floral is very beautiful. It really does fit like the bodice of a late 18th century dress. Is it too Poldark?
Is there such a thing as too Poldark?
I don’t think so, but I’ve only watched the first two episodes of the second season.
I have now run out of words, so I will close by saying, “Have a fantastic weekend!”
Whoops! I forgot to show you the back.
I am not bothered by the fact that the patterned fabric does not wrap the whole way around me. I would prefer that it did, but am not put out because it doesn’t.
