Posts on French Chic style + Parisian fashion tips. Inspiration and stylist tips on how to wear the look.
There’s a very “inspired by” version of the Isabel Marant “Poppy” bow pumps that Emmanuelle Alt had been sporting quite a bit over at the GAP. So what if the sold-out style was from last season, they are classic, super cute, and very French Chic. Pair them with skinny jeans for a Parisian take on…Published on October 18, 2011
The French Chic Formula for Everyday Style a la Emmanuelle Alt. I'll Have What She's Having: Off-handed, easy, wearable Parisian style. Emmanuelle Alt Makes Cool French Chic Look So Easy, so can you!Style is a lot like cooking.If you start out with poor ingredients, no matter how many spices you add, the dish doesn't work… well, at best, it could be just passable.But if there are a few very special ingredients, the result can be superb!I've been observing the very covetable, easy-going style of Emmanuelle Alt for some time as she is one of my poster girls for pulling off everyday élan in an attainable, distinctive and fuss-free way. What's most interesting is the relatable way that Alt carries herself and the ease in the way that she wears her better than basic basics that are iconic of a busy modern working woman and mom.Published on September 02, 2011

When too many actresses chose to over do their hair, here's one look that keeps it simple and chic. YES, please do try this classic French chignon at home…There absolutely can be too much of a good thing!Sorry to report, but there were far too many actresses who opted for big fashion and big hair at Sunday's Golden Globes… a fashion victim combination that did nothing for the star herself but became a walking ad for the heavy-handed stylists who put her together.SEE: Golden Globe Fashion PhotosConfession: I was waiting for a one actress to wear a diamond studded sandwich board mentioning all her fashion credits.In all that frou-frou frippery, a few chose the minimalist and pretty chic way, like Claire Danes, Emma Stone and Julianna Marguiles. In their less is more style, they absolutely stood out.READ: Golden Globes Red Carpet Fashion ReviewI loved the minimalism of Marguiles' vintage Yves Saint Laurent gown, but frankly would have added one modern and unexpected piece of jewelry- like a bold YSL geode necklace or earrings from the resort collection to pop it just a wee a bit.Published on January 18, 2011

Somehow we would like to believe that the bikes in Paris are rather tzujed up glam affairs.But, no. More often than not, Parisians go for practicality rather than preciousness when it comes to getting around the city– always with a dash of French chic style, of course! Richard Nahem, observes…I recently started taking photos of bicycles around the city. They have a certain charm which is hard to describe.From the slick racers that are used in the Tour De France, to the beat up but tough spray painted bicycles to the delivery ones with baskets to the gray, to the utilitarian Velib rentals, they are a vital form of transport to get around the much trafficked rues of Paris. Not to mention that with the recent strikes they were the only reliable way to get from here to therePublished on November 09, 2010
Cartier Love Collection 2010: There's no doubt that I have been in love with LOVE for a long while. No, not the kind of emotional love that first comes to mind… this is a style site afterall. What I am referring to is the iconic modernity that comes in the red Cartier box, preferably with an engraved notecard attached.Cartier's Love affair first began in the 1970's with the yellow gold flat bangle designed by Aldo Cipullo. Punctuated with screws, the bracelet requires a simple turn of a screwdriver to undo therefore becoming a lover to lover symbol of commitment– a 70's take on a chasity belt, if you will.More than that, its timeless clean design works so well from day to night, from man to woman, that you may never want to separate from the bond of Love. From 70's icons like Elizabeth Taylor and Ali McGraw to Eva Mendes today, the bracelet stands on its own as a modern symbol of romance and desire.Published on November 04, 2010
My Dog, Myself: Paris Pooches… they’ve got the look!Only in Paris when you look like your dog, it will be chic!I know I will get an argument by dog lovers from other places (particularly from Sharon and her love of French poodles), but I say no one loves their dogs more than Parisians.I back up my statement with the fact that dogs are allowed almost anywhere in Paris- at the butcher, the baker, restaurants, the metro, parks, art galleries, food shops, boutiques, and dog grooming salons.>> SHOP: Need to be discreet?
