Today was another sad weather day...

That kind of days when you cannot plan anything...

as rain is just around the corner!

It's the season when it's hard to plan outfits...

It's as cold as in winter

but I really cannot abandonned my cotons dresses and skirts yet!

It's also the last couple of days when we will be able to go out with vintage cars!

Soon, snow will arrive and salt on roads with it!

As our '59 caddy was fully restored this year...

It will hibernate for a few months with its 3 "friends"

in our cosy garage!

When cold and rain arrive, I always dream to live in some sunny places...

I brought sun in my outfit with ...  CACTUS!!!

I built my outfit around a beautiful set: 
necklace and matching earrings!

Another GORGEOUS creation from Bow & Crossbones!

Their cactus collection is just so fun

they could even customized mine with small red and gold pearls!

I really like that personnal attention!!!!

But how to match cactus with a winter outfit???

I chose that really full skirt... 

I don't know how to describe this fabric...

Batik? Indian? African?

It's fun because I found this skirt in a thrift store in... Budapest!

It is from the 50's with no doubt seing its construction...

But it's really not an usual pattern!

I also wore this gorgeous vintage mexican cape.

My shoes are from Miss L Fire, a 40's flair with comfort!

And I cannot go out without a brooch!!!!

This lovely cactus is from Belle Lurette, 2 talented french ladies!

Sylvain is so happy that his "baby" is finally back home!

This Cadillac was his first vintage car...

he was just 19 years old when "she" arrived in his life!

An OLD couple!!!

The paint is SO shiny now...

a real miror!!!

And this time my hubby chose to match his car instead of me...

is it a sign???

Dispite of the cold, we had a pleasant photos shoot

with some good music!

We travelled a lot with this caddy around Europe...

and we hope to plan some new trips really soon with "her"!

Are you ready for winter?
Do you also own vintage cars?

Pas facile la météo ces derniers temps... c'est pourquoi je n'aime pas aller vers l'hiver... froid, pluie... que prévoir avec un pareil temps? Il ne reste plus que quelques jours au mieux quelques semaines pour profiter de nos voitures anciennes... L'hibernation est proche pour elles... le sel, le pire ennemi des anciennes, va bientôt recouvrir nos routes!
Alors on en profite pour sortir notre Cad tout juste restaurée. Mais que porter en cette mi-saison qui penche de plus en plus vers l'hiver... on hésite à sortir les bottes et les gros lainages... j'ai voulu apporté un peu de soleil à ma tenue avec des accessoires CACTUS! Encore une tenue bien fun à composer!!!
Pour fêter le retour de sa belle au garage (et oui, leur histoire d'amour a commencé bien avant la nôtre!), Sylvain semble avoir choisi des couleurs assorti à sa nouvelle peinture étincelante!
Et voilà... je pense qu'il est désormais trop tard pour luter... Noël approche à grand pas... J-36...
- Bon week-end à tous! -


  1. Love your cactus inspired outfit! You are so fortunate to have three wonderful vintage automobiles. We have a 1954 MG TF that has been in my family since the 60's. It is a joy to drive a vintage car, but you do feel a responsibility to take care of it. I often stop by to see what you and Sylvain are up to and am never disappointed.

  2. So cool outfits on both of you! :) Love especially the cactus jewelry! :)

  3. O my that is a gorgeous caddy and some amazing clothing! Those Miss L Fire Shoes are to die for!

  4. You too look lovely as always - and so does your car! I'm glad she has three friends in the garage. :)

  5. its all great but I am swooning over the letterman sweater

  6. The print on the skirt is amazing! Of course the whole outfit is spectacular. And, three vintage cars? I am sooooo jealous :)

  7. This winter hits me really hard. I have the feeling it's darker and rainier than the years before ... Probably it's just me getting older and feeling uncomfortable with this season more and more.

    Your exotic skirt looks amazing ... where ever it's fabric is originally from - it's too die for beautiful. so ist hte mexican cape. wow!
