Paris Match

Today, on a whim I bought a few old French magazines from a consignment shop. I couldn't resist. I fully intend to pretend to read these one day, at a cafe...just as soon as I can find some Gitanes and a fishermen's sweater. Des modes de 1959 pour les jolies femmes (or something)


quelle scandale!


My favorite article....the jeune homme timide (Jacques Charrier [Mr. Bardot, at the time, I think]) is adorable. How does one say "Aqua Velva" in French?

"Blizzard Flap"!


Harriet Carter's gone French!?



This picture of Sophia, "blonde et maigre", is worth the $1.50 right there, non?

I want a Blizzard Flap, much more interesting than my plain Whirlpool.

Poor guy eats cream of wheat for lunch and has to iron his velvet trousers himself. :)

Gitanes are available at the tobacco shop on Magazine across from Rue De La Course where you should read your Paris Match. Do you really want to wear a fishermen's sweater at this time of year?
