Some women remain eternal, and to my opinion, what makes them so immortal is their natural refined beauty. Everything seemed to be so perfect in the past decades: streets were not invaded yet by those 70s boring building blocks which destroyed the entire architecture; the women were sublimes, taking their time to get their hair perfectly done; fashion still had innovation; food was organic and fresh; boutiques were unique and mostly independent from today’s industrial high street stores which make it all look the same. Anyway, I know that society changes, but I regret not to have been bornin the 30s and not to have been able to enjoy that different kind of lifestyle, surrounded by a non globalized world, and where cultures used to be more defined.
