From Claire comes this awesome photograph of The Ladies in Paris!
While adventuring around Paris I found this shirt in a shop window and knew I had to send you a picture. I completely blanked and didn’t get the name of the store it was in (so sorry) but I do remember it was somewhere north of Notre Dame.
So somewhere above the cathedral, the Ladies hang out in a Paris store window. HAVE A LOOK AT THAT!
Seriously, if I had seen that, I would have walked straight into the glass in shock. HOW AWESOME.
Have I ever shared the origin of The Ladies? The Ladies are a 1940’s vintage eyeglasses advertisement illustration. Candy found them when she did the original design of the site (I bought the domain, and she did the first design, which is why the first banner read “Smart Bitches who read Trashy Novels” – oops) and we bought a license to use the image from the museum that had created the original high-resolution scan. The illustrators back then were never tracked or credited, so we have no idea who created the image, but whoever it was, s/he was excellent.
And The Ladies look spiffy on a shirt, too!
