I'm lovin the colors of the last couple of seasons. But I have to say this photo in New York City does it for me? I haven't been so motivated to work out la de da. But with the styles coming out this year, I'm all about that. Also, just the tailored cuts and angles. So feminine - just right up my alley. It's simple, tres chic and sexy. Love it!
I always need my dose of style inspiration and as you all know I love the Simply Luxurious blog. I don't read fashion magazines much anymore. They've lost alot of originality in my humble opinion. But these pics. Street fashion at its best. I love the wild factor with the animal print shoes - I mean that's a total head turner.
Black leather pants - always sexy and with this look totally classy, I love the clutch bags, but I find those hard to carry. I'm always afraid I'll walk off without it. Lol.
Shannon compiled some awesome pics - these are just my faves. But go check out the rest.
Our very own Frogette - Raney Lasusa - decided to finally write down her rules for Parisian Chic. Inspired by Ines de la Fressange's "Parisian Chic: A Style Guide" - we followed Raney around attempting to capture Paris street style in Dallas. Raney's French-American, and well you figure, she's got to be able to impart some of Paris' secrets.
Raney's French designer of choice - Anne Fontaine. Anne is Brazilian-French and is known for adding that sensual pop to Parisian simplicity and elegance.
You'll love the mini style guide - cool tips on how to unleash your femme fatale. Of course, a feature on French style would not be complete without a little wine tasting lesson - so you can be oh so sophisticated! And last but not least, check out our 3-Day Shopping Guide to all the "French" things to do in cosmopolitan Dallas. We picked our favorite restaurants, boutiques, museums and so much more.
I'm really into Paris right now. I think the autumn and winter holiday season have me dreaming of the City of Lights. Here's a cool video on how to tie a scarf like a Parisian and check out the article by Z Girl Raney on Le Scarf and her take on adding a little chic into your style.
Had the pleasure of checking out Anne Fontaine's foundation launch at Highland Park Village in Dallas last Thursday. The evening of shopping's goal was to benefit the reforestation of the Atlantic Forest in Brazil.
Anne Fontaine is an elegantly chic fashion house, mostly well-known in Europe. The designer is from Brazil, but based in France. Her claim to fashion world fame - her beautifully tailored white shirts. Think of the simplicity of Parisian chic along with Brazilian sultriness.
Love this video of the opening of one of her boutiques in Brussels. And here's a link to a bio on Anne.
Ok. Well, I feel like I've traveled around the world and landed back in San Francisco. If you're in San Fran, stop by the Museum of the African Diaspora to pick up one-of-a-kind handcrafted tote bags from Senegal. The fabrics and soft leather finishes make the bags standout. The designer is actually South African Dorit Sade who fell in love with the Senegalese prints and artwork on a visit. Lovely!
