To Catch a Thief

"Miss. Stevens, you're one in a million."
"That's a routine compliment, but I'm willing to accept it."  - Grace Kelly in To Catch a Thief

If you can't tell, I spent some time this weekend watching old movies. Though the line was scripted and the wardrobe designed by someone else (the iconic Edith Head), Grace Kelly caries off this exchange without sounding conceited, just confident and poised. Doesn't every woman, at least a small part of her, wish she could be this witty and self-assured?

PS: I'm off to Big Bear Lake in a few moments. Enjoy the autumn inspiration posts I've lined up. I will certainly be enjoying the cool weather as an introduction to the new season.
