Our recent Swiss Vacation…

Bruno the dog...




STYLE AND THE CITY

The Swiss are very discreet. Consequently, we agreed that we would not expect to capture any street fashion images while in Geneva and almost forgot to bring our sleek little new camera when we went window-shopping.

However, from the moment we reached the chic shopping streets we were blown away with the incredible style. A yummy mummy wearing a pair of cute flat round-toed black and white Chanel high boots…

Next we spotted a lovely young lady dressed as an urban ballerina, who we assumed had to work in fashion or high-end fashion retail to be so experimental. She wore very expensive black patent ballet pump, black tights and black woolen leg warmers, all under an updated black net-tutu cut longish, to about two inches above the knee…

Unfortunately they were all walking at high speed on their mobile telephones, making it impossible for us to ask for a photograph…




Couples younger…

And older…

Our Swiss mountain village…


It's sort of dog week...

Dr. Kos (our sister)…

Apparently a view of Matterhorn through the window of your chalet doubles your rent…
