Years ago my English friend Chris who came to Sydney for a business trip from London. When we met up in Martin Place; which was near the Westin Hotel where he stayed, this was his opening line when he saw me walking toward him:
“It’s very white here!”
Oh yes, back then and there, we saw mostly white European around.
Years and years later, I was showing an Australian friend – who’s also a Chris – some photos I took in Paris, I heard him say:
“It’s very white there!” Chris has never been to Paris himself.
This time around, I knew the ‘white’ he referred to, was the cream limestone Paris architecture.
‘Actually, it is!’ I nodded.
Whenever picturing Paris in my head, those white/cream buildings with grey roof tops pop with red chimneys and completed by the feminine lace balconies and French windows always had me gush: ‘The City of Light is truly pretty!’
To channel the city’s soft colours and the touch of romance, what better fashion choice than a pastel dress?!!!
