French Fashion: The Essentials Every Woman Needs

Originally posted on Up Magazine:

The French woman has remained a mystery for many years past; simple, seductive, and sophisticated are simply a few words to describe the je ne sais quoi that the French woman oozes with pursed-lip pronunciation.

As if last week’s haute couture shows weren’t enough too nudge us into French inspiration, this past Monday signified Bastille Day, otherwise known as the French’s Fourth of July, or “le quatorze juillet”.
