"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles." --Audrey Hepburn

Straight from Paris - The Sartorialist






Spring semester just started this week, and somehow I am already buried under a pile of work! Not to mention that I have been rushing from classes to extracurriculars to work - my Metrocard is definitely getting some exercise this week!

Anyway, I was very excited (as I'm sure all of you will be) to see that the Sartorialist has been posting street style photographs from Paris. I'm already feeling nostalgic about my trip last month - I'm craving French style and attitude! Even if I can't jet over to Paris right now, I can at least admire some fashionable French ladies from the comfort of my own dorm room, right?

As a side note, I do think it is refreshing to see the young, quirky side of Parisian style (mainly in that last photo but to some degree also in the third picture). We are so used to seeing neutrals/black in classic, sophisticated shapes that it is rewarding to finally see a fuller picture of the range of styles found in this fashion capital. And while I will always adore the chic side of Paris and the iconic French woman dressed in head-to-toe black, there is something thrilling about seeing someone break out of that mold and try something completely different and even somewhat shocking.

Yes, it is the same girl! I believe her name is Giovanna, so she's actually Italian but living in Paris...

Sart is classic. People call him "boring" or a "one note wonder" but I for one love his ability to find always classy, pulled-together people. Excellent selection of pictures. I do like the quirky style of the French young.
