Looking In And Out Of Windows

I have been on the couch all week with a bug, which has left me plenty of time to look out my window and contemplate life. And cough.

Sunday night my window offered this view

Just a few short minutes ago, my window looked like this.

 

It rarely snows in Paris, and this snow didn’t stick, but was fun to watch fall.

The Louis Vuitton windows on Ave. Montaigne look like this

Ever sweet Bonpoint offered this glimpse of springtime and butterflies.

I’m not so sure about these Chanel windows. Do we really want to go back to the days of leg warmers?

And in closing, these flowers in the window of a fancy florist would brighten any sick room.

Enjoy the view from your windows today, mes amis.

Dior’s Christmas Windows

I know- several weeks late, and in the case of Dior, several tens of thousand dollars short. But I was completely smitten with the understated elegance of the Dior windows on Montaigne, and I think you will like them, too. And don’t worry- I have pics of the current windows, and they are knock-out, as well.

Usually I try to avoid taking window photos during the day because the reflections are so bad. However, in this case, I thought the reflections added some interest. I”ll show you day and night photos so you can decide for yourself.

First, the gigantic chandelier hanging on the corner of the Dior store was a show stopper.

The windows, with groups of oversized metallic ornaments, were gorgeous.

Doesn’t it look like the ornaments are popping out of the windows?

At night the windows just exuded elegance.
