Lovely ladies and a special mention

Barcelona Cute Suite

Carrer Valencia

Happy Monday! As I hinted in last Friday’s post, this week is going to be about the delicate and dainty, and today I’m starting with these lovely ladies and a special mention. They might actually be quite strong and even regal, the ladies shown in these photographs, but dainty, delicate ladies often are very strong indeed, behind the fragile image they project…

The special mention I referred to earlier, appeared on a Spanish blog called Carmen in the Sky. It is written by the director of the Spanish edition of Glamour Magazine, Carmen Garijo, a very lovely lady who is an old friend and colleague from my times (many years ago) working in fashion editorial. She dedicated a blogpost at the end of last month to blogs she likes, and in its last paragraph added a very kind and overwhelming mention of the Cute Suite. You can find this mention here, on Carmen in the Sky’s blogpost. (It is in Spanish, so you may want to use your browser’s translation tool.) Thanks very much, dear Carmen! Your very kind words made me blush, but coming from you, they are a huge compliment about my efforts to create a blog that is engaging and attractive. Gracias amiga!

But I think there are more people who roll that way, and so today I’m dedicating a post to those of of us ladies who love doing ab.so.lute.ly nothing. I leave you with images of ladies of leisure who do nothing but sit or stand around all day – enjoy!

Standing very still

Carrer Banys Nous

To me a good statue is one that looks like the subject has been frozen in place, in the middle of an action. That is kind of what I feel like at the moment, for I have yet to determine my course of action for 2012, and so I feel like I am standing very still, just like a statue…
