Just A Touch...


Earlier in the year in Cannes, France… I came across a woman...........She was in her late 70’s and was sitting at the café I was having lunch in…… she looked creative, confident, warm, happy, stylish, approachable, vivacious and totally amazing all rolled up in one!........ and this was before I even spoke to her!....I watched her smile at passerby’s and interact with the café staff….I was so drawn to her,....... I pulled up a seat beside her and introduced myself.......She smiled and introduced herself and we just began chatting…. We spoke and drank coffee for about 2 hours …… we talked about life, love and fashion…. she was everything and then some! She had led the most amazing life and we laughed together as she recounted some of her more memorable moments......... we never exchanged numbers, emails or addresses…. Instead we hugged and she said ‘you touched my spirit in a wonderful way’ and then she was gone….my perfect stranger.... I have thought about her so many times since then….I hope she thinks of me from time to time….. During our conversation I commented on her beautiful calf hair bag…as she lit a cigarette she said ‘isn’t it wonderful??.....I adore fur and print…but not too much…I like to mix it up…a little bit of everything is good …as long as its in moderation’…… so today, I post in homage of her…. A little bit of denim.. a little bit of leather …and a little bit of calf hair………With just a touch of skin.

  60. When I saw that jacket, I knew it was Zara. It is so gorgeous ! And this woman you met must have been amazing. Nowadays people swap emails, add each other on Facebook but don't bother meeting up again. It's so sad. At least she was worth those 2 hours of your life and you never know, you might meet her again.
