Too stiff, too tight, too fashionable

News from Monaco

Hurrah for a successful trip to the supermarket. The toilet rolls are back! We had to wait in quite a long queue to get in tho', and there was a policeman checking where people lived. Residents of neighbouring France had to show their "attestation", and those of Monaco their Carte de Resident.

Beau Brummell once said that if people turn to look at you, you are not well dressed; but either too stiff, too tight, or too fashionable. Well, since we're all hiding at home we can indulge in wearing whatever we like, be that pyjamas or ball gown. Take a leaf out of teleworking New Zealanders's books and dress up for #formalfriday.
