Accessories are the secret to great style and are what French Women depend on to create their unique style.
Here are 3 reasons why you need to incorporate them into your style.
1. You don't need to buy new clothes.
Accessories allow you to take your little Black dress and make it look different every time you wear it* or change your white shirt and black pants from the perfect work outfit to a stylish look perfect for dinner out by changing your accessories.
Change your accessories change your look!
Black and white necklaces on there own are not unique. To make them trendy I'll take all the ones I already have, buy more and wear them all together. My new look is trendy, and I feel totally en-vogue.
2. Accessories are the easiest way to stay trendy.
Every season new fashion trends hit the runway. Staying stylish means including those up-to-the-moment pieces into how we dress. Accessories that are à la mode are the easiest and best way to stay current. Adding to your wardrobe by buying a few pieces that are en vogue is always fun, but using what you already have and creating your look with a scarf, shoes, a hat and/or earrings is the best way to create your look that is au courant.
Why hide all those necklaces? I keep them in the bathroom to add color!
3. Accessories are cost-effective.
Buying cutting-edge sunglasses, shoes, or necklaces is far less expensive than buying a new dress, pants, or tops every season. Accessories are cost effective. Over time they don’t go out of style, how you wear them is what changes.
Imagination and accessories equals your unique style.
In order to master ‘The Art of Accessorizing,' you need ideas for inspiration, a mirror to stand in front of, and practice, practice, practice, remember the joke "How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Practice, practice, practice.”
Despite what many American women think; being chic and having that 'je ne sais quoi' style is not part of French women genes (well, maybe just a little). Instead, they observe fashion and rehearse how they can personalize it to create their style.

I was with my mother in her room at her new abode.
As I sat facing her, I began to read last week’s post, Cooking through a Child’s Eyes, about the time we baked a marble cake together. I wondered if she remembered the event that. . .
The first time I saw magic happen in the kitchen I was six years old and wanted to help my mother cook. I’d follow her every step and move, clinging like her shadow, struggling to see what she was doing. Inevitably, she’d turn around and trip over me. It wasn’t optimum for either of us, so when she told me we were going to bake a special cake and I could help … “there is a surprise at the end,” she promised…
I beamed with joy…
Cooking is full of mystifying moments that are…
The last time I took a train that had a dining car was right after I graduated from high school.
Walking into the dining car, I was flooded with memories of childhood trips. It looked exactly as I remembered: the tables were set with clean white tablecloths, cloth napkins, china, silverware, and gleaming glasses—just like in an old movie.
I was excited and hungry for French food. My first taste was . . .
