Paris Fluff

While out window shooting I kept seeing bits of fluff hither and thither...
It's true many Frenchmen still apply a fluffy badger brush to their chins. It's also true exactly a year ago I came to a similar conclusion of the prevalent appearence of Paris fluff.

French women have no 5 o'clock shadows to hide but nevermind. Fluff is decorating their chinlines this season.

Fluff + sequins is an unbeatable combo this season evidently...

Sonia's fluffy sleeves will hide a multitude of sins I guess...

Most Paris fluff is fake but this major furry fling looks real to me...

Cuff your boots with fluff...

Or better yet fluff line them for a warming effect...

Christian Louboutin heels with fox bits inside instead of your feet?

Not real fluffy bears cosy up on Bvd St. Germain...

Very real fluff getting buffeted on a coin de la rue...

Fluffy Saint Honores have always been 'in' in Paris.



Remembrances of fluff past - I once had a cat named 'Fluffy' till he peed in a plant on my mother's dinner table. Then he mysteriously 'ran away' I was told.


BONJOUR FLUFF!

  1. Interesting... I guess I am not too fond of "fluff" unless it comes on four legs or on top of a French pastry... :-) Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

  2. Loved the cat story.
    How did he fit into a plant container?
    My persian cat is named Puff Ruggy or Puff for short.

  3. True it was not a very large plant container, but cats are efficient so no problem.
    The problem was the aftermath.

  6. Another very esoteric and creative subject for your post Carol.
    I am saddened by the story about your kitty. But you must admit; you...or your parents, would not have that problem with your friend Bear.

  8. Love it, but love it less when eldest daughter asks to be trendy at French school and have fluffy boots - they're also expensive to boot!

  9. I love fluff! My first grown-up dog, a Kerry Blue terrier, ate my ostrich fluff powder puff~! Grrr! But she did not run away. :-)

  10. She ran away, eh? What a riot. I love some of that fluff. Not so big on the fluff and sequins, but the rest I'll take.

  14. Great photos as always, Carol!
    I'm not sure about the fluff trend. Doesn't do much for me :) Fluff & sparkle?
    The bears in the window are cute!
    Sorry to hear about the kitty!

  15. Ah yes. My mother said my dog "ran away" one time. Much to her surprise, I found him.

    I also think the fox fur likely looked better on the fox, but this is a touchy subject.

  16. Fluffy = Cosy ...in fashion you have to have the look the high and the personality.Cheers

  22. Not to worry. All pets that "run away" end up at a beautiful farm in the country. ;-)
