Does this street market make me look fat?

Market Day-Aix en -Provence!  This is me excited about getting to shop on Market Day! I think I was asking my husband if this made me look fat! What can you expect trying on clothes on the street over all your other clothes!

As you can see I was not the only one  trying on over your clothes. At most of the vendors they only had a small mirror. It was hard to know what size to buy. I ended up having to have the outfit I bought taken up when I got home.

This was the cutest lady so stylishly dressed (note her pants). I had so much fun watching her and wished I had had time to try to talk to her. 

Hats were everywhere.

This is me back home in my "French outfit."My husband was so sweet on Market Day. I draped him like he was a coat rack with my shoulder bag, large camera, scarf and jacket so I could slide the racks and try things on.  As we were leaving to go to dinner he asked me wasn't I going to wear my "new french clothes?" I changed as fast as I could even though they were a little big. In fourty years of marriage I don't remember him asking me to wear a certain thing. You better believe I was happy to change and will hold that comment very dear to my heart.

Hope you enjoyed the fashion show. Other Provence posts:
