Café Des Ambasade

"I never take any notice to what common people say,
and I never interfere with what charming people do."
-- Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

Oh what I wouldn't give to live in 19th century Paris. To me, this lady epitomizes a quaintrelle, and look at the people at the café-- the man with the beret and ascot, everyone dressed to the nines. Sometimes I wish we still dressed up like this. Be extravagant for no reason. Dare to wear heels on cobblestone, and sit at a outside table with a pointy mustache and top hat. J'adore!


  1. I love that you love Paris :)

  2. How can I not?! I'm so jealous that you've been there!

  3. ...moments later, the lady in heels snapped her ankle. Score:
    Quaintrelle 0, Cobblestones 1

  4. hahaha! love melissa's comment. the true reality.

  5. PS... I am tagging you for an "8" tag and/or a photo tag... rules are on my Melissaisms page if you want to play along. :)
