I've been tuning in on Fridays to Ruby's Musings on her French thing and it's got me thinking about French dressing--or what WE, as Americans, think it is. I'm certainly no expert, but I can say I've read biographies on Chanel, studied fashion history and spent some time in Paris years ago, and I still find the way french women dress rather fascinating.
What I did today was something that is true to the stereotype--bateau-neck striped shirt with a glam-ish skirt and my favorite slip-ons. (a Frenchwomen would probably had sexier heels). Once, I read that to dress like a Frenchwoman, you should always wear one expensive item--that, ladies, is my shoes.
I'm going to experiment some more, and I'm sure French Fridays at Ruby's blog will inspire me also. In the meantime, check out this video~I thought this was an interesting take on French styling, and a bit contrary to what I had mentioned previously in a post stating "...Europeans wishing to stand out...". So much for that!
Any insightful ideas on French dressing welcome!
