Ok, I know I am not groundbreaking in discovering this book, but since I am about to buy it for my store I figured I should share some of it’s marvelousness. (not a word? see if I care). Parisian Chic by Ines de la Fressange is a literal bible to dressing chic for all events, at all times. Below I am going to share with you my favorite quotes and pages from her book that will go down in history as the torah of personal style. Seriously, bookmark this stuff.
“Shop at H&M, in the menswear department.”
“Who said white jeans were for summer only? I strongly recommend white jeans for winter, worn with a navy sweater and ballet flats. They’re also great at night, with a silver sequined jacket- perfect for the most elegant soiree!”
“A striking cuff will always make a statement and stand out. As armful of fine bangles is another good investment.”
“A big, man’s watch with a cashmere sweater, jeans, and Converse sneakers is very sensual. And with a tuxeo jacket or a little black dress, it’s sexy.”
