What 3 things French Women Do To Create Their Style

Do you find yourself staring at your closet and trying on outfit after outfit until you finally find something that works? You leave the house with piles of clothes covering a chair and feeling stressed. Your conclusion...you have nothing to wear better go shopping.

That was me for years until I remembered how French women dress and it isn’t about having more clothes, it is about having less. The 3 steps that brought back my smile and style . . . 

6 basic piece wardrobe

1. Basics

I started depending on my 6 piece basic wardrobe. (if you want to read the 6 pieces blog http://bit.ly/6BASICS) French women make certain that their basics are good quality and fit them perfectly. It is not their only wardrobe, but the basics are the pieces they depend on.
Having those basics gives me the security and confidence to know I have something to wear.
2. Accessories

French women have learned that to make a basic wardrobe work they need accessories not more clothes. They depend on scarves, jewelry, shoes, and handbags to create their unique style.  3. Research

Inspiration is essential. French women look for inspiration everywhere. If you want to create your look you need to have ideas. Magazines and online sites are good resources. I spend time looking and clipping ideas to create an idea board. When I need ideas I glance at my board for inspiration. The more ideas I have the easier it is to create a look I like.Mood Board

Between My 6 basic pieces, my accessories and my idea-board, getting dressed is a lot more fun and much, much, easier. In this case, less is really more!

An acquaintance invited us to his daughter’s wedding, a traditional Russian wedding in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn. When we arrived it was dark—it was closed. I checked the invitation to confirm the date, the location, the time; everything was correct—there was no one! I said, “This is ridiculous, let’s…

One of the disagreements my husband, Mark, and I have is that I do not use the word NO the same way he does. I use it as it is used in France—NON, meaning: oh really, let’s talk about that; you’re going to have to convince me.... Mark understands no to mean no you are wrong. He can say...

As we celebrate the 75th anniversary of D’ Day… Thinking about the magnitude of what occurred… I discovered that there is a huge difference between seeing movies or reading about WWII and actually being there... At the museum, I found myself in front of the Jewish star, the yellow star that every Jew had to wear. I was mesmerized and overcome by…
