Absolutely love this. It also makes me think of our friend at team gloria in some completely tangential way.
Chic and savvy and loves to read!
Oh, and speaking of which, George has a post up in about five minutes. 🙂
Although they normally look nothing alike, in this photo Claudette bears a striking resemblance to my mom. I like it!
She always looked to me like a very sophisticated pixie – if that makes sense.
Hey, congrats on your book! http://www.amazon.com/dp/0615871437/ref=cm_sw_su_dp
It makes perfect sense!
Thanks, but it is not my book. I am just the editor/consultant. My occasional contributor Kevin wrote it, and it is amazing.
What a lovely picture of Ms Colbert! She looks just adorable reading. 🙂
I want those sunglasses!
You would look divine!
I notice you call her a “sophisticated pixie”… So true! No wonder I like her!
I would have to keep them in a special case as the last pair of sunglasses I had I set on the cushion of the couch beside me, got distracted by whatever I was doing, forgot they were there and when I sat up squarely placed my knee in the treasured spectacles and snapped them in half.
Those certainly are a reader’s specs.
But what must have been on those pages to draw forth such a concentrated look?
The Perfumed Dandy
The best selling novels at the time were:
All Quiet on the Western Front
The Good Earth
I love everything about this photo – her glasses, her hair, her outfit. Plus, she looks sincerely interested in her book.
