Parisian Chic

Style has always been subjective. How you dress depends on your personality and preference, and we might not have the same personalities. We may not agree wholly on some points, but its good to know that although we have different tastes, there are some things that we can do and adopt that will work for any style. Those instant things that can immediately upgrade your style and add a little something. I think that no one can go wrong with the basics. :)

I was browsing through Daphne Osena-Paez' blog and found this very interesting book that she mentioned. I'm itching to see if they have  it at National Bookstore, Powerbooks, or Fully Booked (I bet it would also cost as much as Nina Garcia's Little Black book of Style, and her other books. hehe.)  

I've searched for it through the internet, and these are a few tips from the book that I found. 





my thoughts :  I was able to buy a nice blazer with nice lining, it adds a little accent when I fold back the sleeves to reveal the colorful cloth that is the lining at the cuff. :) See how the belt is just kind of tied at the waist? 

















my thoughts : I think the little black dress is a staple. It's an instant go to outfit, I wear it when I can't think of anything else to wear : then I have fun accessorizing with big earrings, or a necklace, or red pumps. :) its like a blank canvass.




my thoughts : I love wearing jeans (aside from wearing skirts. hehe) It is true that you can match it with anything. I love it that you can just wear a plain top, put on a jacket, and just pair it with your nice pumps or high heels, you have your instant chic outfit. :)



These are just some things that we can do.  The most important thing is that you have to be comfortable in whatever you're wearing. And whatever your style is, to wear it with confidence.  :)

@eden: The title of the book is Parisian Chic by Ines de la Fressange. I also have to check the bookstores if they have it. :)
