Dear Fashion Friends:

I would love to go out, and enjoy a nice dinner or attend a concert. I hope that you and I will be able to do that soon.

I also love going to the open-air markets. When I was young, for example, my Mom and I would get up early in the morning to visit Detroit’s Eastern Market. There, we bought our week’s fruits and vegetables. Afterward, we would go to the Farmer’s Market for breakfast. I would always order the Farmer’s Special, which included eggs, three types of breakfast meats, hash browns, and toast. It was wonderful. Alas, the Farmer’s Market closed. Lots of fond memories, though.

The photograph of this exquisite Boho Linen Jumpsuit – as listed on the website, is a lovely reminder of why I love open-air markets. A word or two about the jumpsuit. The AC website describes the attire as “elegant and cozy”; made from linen material, this jumpsuit comes with easy to adjust straps and brass rings. The “trousers fit tight on hips and flow freely on the bottom.”

As I said, I love the photograph’s setting of the open-air bazaar. There are crafts from Asia and beyond. The photograph’s artistic offerings have the same exotic flare of creative offerings found in movies like Casablanca or The Man Who Knew Too Much. Closer to home, the photograph reminded me of the exciting times I visited Port Austin’s Art Fair in Port Austin, Michigan. Michigan artists come to Port Austin to sell their arts. They include ceramics, paintings, and photography. My favorite was a Port Austin artist and poet. Her lines of verse are lovely, and her paintings’ bright colors are happy and uplifting.

Secondly, our model is delightful! I love how she arranged her hair. Her taste in jewelry is simple but exquisite! Her choice of makeup is impeccable! I can see her as a quiet soul! She has the persona of someone who enjoys reading and understanding the world around her. I imagine her being a history instructor who spends her time understanding the world of Antiquity. Perhaps she and her significant other visit open-air shops and then go to Anita’s Kitchen in Royal Oak, Michigan to enjoy a leisurely lunch (see ) “The excellency of every art,” observed John Keats “is its intensity, capable of making all disagreeable evaporate” (

I hope your visit to was an enchanting one.
