Ooh, wish I could be there -- you've profiled Dombret's lines before and they look wonderful, especially at those prices. Will you be treating yourself? Will you show us?

Duchesse said...

LJ: No, just show up.

materfamilias: Well, hop a plane and stay with me. Hoping to order a skirt; she will cut a few inches longer! What a joy to have clothes made so that they fit.

Thanks for this; looks lovely. Though of course I'm a lot closer to Ottawa, I more often work there, and have family in Ottawa and Gatineau. Love her sketches.

I passed through Antwerp last week. Very high winds. Duchesse, Belgians aren't QUITE as tall on average as Dutch, but your height is nothing out of the ordinary, even for an "over 50".

My chere Duchesse,

I think you handled your awards with your usual aplomb and grace.

This virtual world can be so bizarre.

Have fun shopping. I trust you'll tell us what you liked and maybe even what you bought.
