Roland Garros has begun, and with it its autumn weather, reminding us that on September 21st, the festivities will draw to a close, ushering in an autumn that should be good for the planet, warding off heatwaves and excessive use of air conditioning.
That's why, I tell you, my friends, you have to seize the day without worrying about tomorrow.
You've got it, I'm the carpe diem of footwear, so if you see something that catches your eye, give it to yourself so you can do some footwork with it.
Don't wait any longer, and unleash your inner spending goddess. After all, you never know what tomorrow will bring.
Incredibly, May 24th is the birthday of Suzanne Lenglen, the immense French tennis champion who gave her name to the second main court at Roland Garros. But before that, she won 214 titles. Simply outstanding.
And never forget that when it rains on St. Donatien's Day, it's rain for the month ahead. That's all for today. After all, I don't have to write a Proustian newsletter every time. Even if I'm licking my lips at the thought of you hanging on your phone, smiling at my classy nonsense.
I leave you with a touch of glam and this superb sequence from the best musical of recent years. Enjoy :
