At some point in your life, I'm sure you wanted to live in Paris. The romance, the Eiffel Tower, the fashionable women! I've also had this burning desire, so a few weeks ago, I researched what fashionable Parisian women wear, hoping to copy their effortless style.
To my horror, I found out that trendy Paris girls hardly ever wear color, and that they are fond of monochromatic outfits (all black or all dark blue clothes). Of course, this advice was from American tourists visiting France, so if there are any French girls reading this blog, I'd love to find out if these rumors are true.
It seems that I'm not cut out to live in Paris, for I'm too fond of bright color combinations. However, black and navy blue, a Parisian staple, is one color combo I can vouch for. I've always thought that black and navy together looked really city-chic, a color combination that the cool downtown girls would wear.
To complement my black and navy outfit, I needed a fancy handbag (the French are all about investing in designer bags that will last forever, supposedly). However, the closest thing I have to a haute couture bag is this quilted purse that I bought at Charlotte Russe. Charlotte Russe seemed to be knocking off Chanel's popular 2.55 quilted purse, but as you can see, this floppy jersey bag is nothing like the real thing.
I guess a real quilted Chanel bag is just another thing I'll have to dream about!
