Parisian chic

A couple months ago, I picked up a copy of Parisian Chic: A Style Guide by Ines de la Fressange. I had read about it on some of the style blogs I follow and thought it might be interesting, becauseĀ  let’s face it – when it comes to clothes, French women have it going on. Just like American women when it comes to obesity. (Kidding!) (Sort of.) (Not really.)

It turns out Ms. de la Fressange has some really good advice, in my non-fashion-forward opinion. I’m particularly inspired by her list of seven wardrobe basics that every woman should have, especially because I already have most of them!

1. A man’s blazer (I’ll be raiding Will’s closet for this one)

2. Trench coat (check!)

3. Navy sweater (will be purchasing soon)

4. Tank top (check!)

5. Little black dress (check!)

6. Jeans (check!)

7. Leather jacket (does pleather count?)

It’s kind of crazy how many polished-looking outfits you can put together with just these seven items and some cool accessories. Once I get that navy sweater, hopefully I’ll be well on my way to chic-ness.

“Who me? Nooo, I’m not from Paris, I just look like it…”
