i've been here for almost two weeks visiting my friend (the lovely clothilde) and it's been great, obviously, because like, paris. we've gone to a TON of museums, sat in a million parks, and walked around for hours and hours. yes, i am in heaven.
since i am so close to french culture and i'm constantly visiting this damned country / speaking this damned language, i thought i would do a lil post about french style, highlighting paris specifically. parisian style is world renowned for being chic and beautiful, looking amazing without even trying, having a few key classic pieces, etc. quilted chanel bags and réalisation are fine and good, obviously, but they're quite boooooring. and i still think the root of french style is a beautiful, classic femininity dating to pompadour and earlier. (coco chanel is probably rolling in her grave-- whatever, she was a nazi anyways.)
i mentioned femininity briefly in one of my previous posts -- basically, i am a Huge Fan of the over-the-top femininity in fashion, as exhibited by like, this whole fucking blog -- but some of my favorite examples recently are duh, molly goddard (especially when suzie bubble wears her, oh my god), also that miu miu collection that basically changed my life. i wanted to bring these sorts of elements back to parisian style.
so here's me, making a fool of myself and freaking out all the french mamies who were just trying to get their morning baguette, for god's sake.
((thanks to clothilde for the pictures and also 99% percent of the clothes!!!))
