I am getting philosophical

What else can you do when you are living not far from the venerable tower where French philosopher Michel de Montaigne wrote his famous Essais. However, Montaigne didn't live in an ivory tower. He was a man of the world. Not only had he been mayor of Bordeaux and member of parliament, he also came from a family of merchants. His medieval castle was later replaced by a larger fairy tale like building and may have seen sumptious banquets and balls.

Thus, I do not feel out of place when sitting under Montaigne's coat of arms on a bench in his park and wearing a royal blue cocktail dress. When this vintage piece was made a pashmina was called a stola and mine is a cloud of blue crepe, disguising, revealing, As You like it.
