personal style, defined: Parisian!

Oh la la! It's another installment of our personal style, defined! That is Jackie, of SweetiePiePumpkinNoodle, and I! Today we are exploring Parisian or French style...

The French have that certain je ne sais quoi about their style... is it really the clothes? The way they carry themselves? The beautiful backdrop of their city? The cigarettes? (btw, I am NOT a proponent of smoking... but when you see the French doing it... it's inexplicably cool.) They have a way of stepping out the door looking amazing and something tells me that if you stopped them to ask the details about their outfit they would slyly respond: "Oh, this old thing?" whether they just stepped off the runway or not.

Runway fashion aside, the French are known for their simple but chic style based mostly in the basics with perhaps a pair of ridiculously fabulous shoes thrown in. Let's explore....


(Details: 1. Trench, Gap, $79.99 2. Patent Platform Pump, Christian Louboutin, $695 3. Knobby Sweater, French Connection $50 4. Classic Stripe Tee, JCrew, $32.50 5. Pleated Cropped Trouser, Charlotte Russe, $28.00 6. Metallic Fringe Scarf, Aeropostale, $7.997. Contrast Bracelet, Forever 21, $7.80)

Your personal style may be Parisian if you think a striped tee and a scarf are the best casual wear you can think of...


Your personal style may be Parisian if you think an amazing handbags and shoes are the key to any outfit...


Don't forget to stop by Jackie's blog to check out Parisian interiors! I know I can't wait to see what she has come up with!
