Ever since I was a girl, I looked forward to the Sunday Style section of the NY Times to see the 'on the street' column by Bill Cunningham. He's actually the reason I started this blog. Over the years, I've had friends who have been shot by him, or have met him from the fashion shows, but I haven't - yet- had the honour myself. And yet I feel like I know him, grew up with him, and he just seems like the nicest, genuinely nicest man.
So today, sitting on the deck watching the calm water of the Sound, I was moved to see that his piece today was on white, specifically 'eyelet' and crochet, because that's what I've noticed recently, too (see Queen Anne's Lace, 9 August). I've been wearing a white eyelet bikini with turquoise lining, which I'll shoot for you tomorrow. The crickets are singing loudly, the fireflies are dancing just outside the porch, and I've come back from a twilight sunset swim while my husband was fishing, with my brother and niece. There are so many photos I'd like to post, but as that other great Scarlett said, tomorrow is, after all, another day.
These are just some random samples of many white crochet or eyelet sightings I had on the street in Southampton, purely coincidental (or is it?) which I am posting as an homage to the Great Man himself.
