French Style

Monday, November 8, 2010


One of my goals for next year is to dress more like a French woman.  So you can image my excitement when I saw this oh-la-la guide drawn by the very talented Parisian editor Badaude?
So how exactly do French women achieve their flawless look? Check out the list and tell me what you think? xoxo

Ps: Fancy a chit-chat? Join me on Twitter!

That's just a great list, a bit hard to read for me but great. I love opaque tights and red lipstick on an otherwise unmade face is, I think, always gorgeous.

Of course, french women achieve theri flawless look by taking care of their figure. They love to dress well so they watch what they eat.

French people comparatively to other nations have a small frame.
