So I was reading Harper's Bazaar before bed last night (because who doesn't love a little fashion before ni nights) and was immediately struck by one of the magazine's "People to Watch"... well obviously I get sidetracked pretty easily because this post is actually about Harper Bazaar's recent online article about Parisian Street Style (I'll let you figure out how I got from A to B.) I wish that women in the United States felt more freedom to wear whatever they feel best in and also expresses their personality without feeling silly.
Now I am not saying that we don't express ourselves, because we certainly do. I am just saying that in the times that I have been out of the country, I have been utterly smitten with their fashion sense and seemingly personal styling. I was in England before women were tucking their skinny jeans in their riding boots... but it wasn't really before because they were doing it there... did that make sense? Anyhoo, maybe I am just a fan of being up to the fashion challenge without being made fun of.
Some of my faves from the Parisian Street Styles you ask? Of course, I'll share! Something about the hats... I always have bought hats, hoping I would have the guts to wear them... and rarely, if ever, do I wear a hat that is not plainly functional. Maybe I need to muster up some hat-full courage?
