Chic espadrilles !!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:38 PM) : 

The car in the background is a 1955-58 Simca 90A Aronde. This was the first car owned in 1965. I recognized it immediately.


Anonymous princessglee said ... (6:51 PM) : 

'member your denim on denim post? Looks like dude here was doin' it way back when.

They look so neat and well-kept...nice.


Blogger Denissa Hady said ... (7:18 PM) : 

so retro <3


Blogger Danielle said ... (7:57 PM) : 

Fantastic photo, it's very colourful! :)



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:38 PM) : 

I wonder if this photo was tinted in some way. That would explain why the woman's shoes match the umbrellas so perfectly. Also most of the tones are in orange and blue. The man is wearing blue clothes and some people in the mid-ground are wearing the same blue. Yes you certainly can see Lanvin and the Carlton Hotel.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:46 PM) : 

Cool Pic! They look like they were wearing TOMS shoes. Love it!


Blogger Estelle Emery said ... (9:48 PM) : 

those look like early toms.
i love how the guy is wearing identical shoes!


Anonymous John Hedge said ... (10:31 PM) : 

Simpler times... Classic looks. I love style from that time; the scallops on the umbrella, the simple chairs, the fashion, the cars...


Blogger Suzy Wu said ... (10:44 PM) : 

Can't find that type of umbrellas anymore... nowadays it's all cheap and plastic...


Blogger Barcelona m'enamora said ... (10:51 PM) : 

Everything is well combined!!! So orange...the shoes, the umbrellas, and the sun!

I love the perspective of the photo...

Regards from Barcelona.


Blogger Rococo Le Monde said ... (11:15 PM) : 

The color palette is gorgeous, what year was this? I used these same colors in a previous post of mine....I absolutely love this color combination! Great picture!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:49 AM) :

Those were the days of everyday elegance, how one represented themselves was so important! None of this excuse making for showing up without consideration to what one has worn :)

Blogger Jana said ... (11:19 AM) : 

This is actually my friend's parents (the last time I saw them they were similarly elegant, poised, and well dressed well into their seventies?)...posted by his amazing wife; I emailed her immediately to ask if I could paint this photograph. I will send a photo when its finished!! It has beautiful perspective, with the complimentary blue and orange hues. Oh my, so excited.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:03 AM) : 

Great pic and it's Cannes alright, I know the place well. At the far end right of the pic you can see two sort of black towers.

That's the Carlton Hotel :

Cheers ;)


Blogger +cez+ said ... (7:20 AM) : 

Definitely Cote d'Azur. That's Cannes, isn't it?!


Anonymous Sartor Resartus said ... (3:58 AM) : 

They look square but still very "modern". Things were more layered and repressed back then and it gave people more radiant energy and style. They couldn't/didn't just let it all hang out. She knows how hot she is and her leg positioning is classic pinup. I like how his espadrilles coordinate with his trousers and shirt. ;-)
