Today's Outfit: Versailles

Versailles is such a delight, and even more so when the weather is cooperating. Although clouds loomed on the horizon in the morning, by the afternoon they cleared up to reveal the bluest of skies. It made strolling the grounds of the Petit Trianon and admiring the gardens that much more wonderful.

For me, what hammered home the grandeur of Versailles more than anything else was Marie Antoinette's miniature hamlet. Having worked at a toy store for four years or so, I can recognize a toy when I see one. This was a toy on a grand scale for a woman with decadent tastes.
