How to Think, Shop and Dress Like a French Woman
by Veronique Vienne
Fashion, style, do's and don'ts...what is French chic...what to wear....how to tie a scarf...and much more it's a crash course in French Dressing.
I found this book online and was curious, and it did not disappoint.
...more French books.....
Alas I am not French, nor will I ever be.
I am, after all, simply a hostess in a humble bungalow.
My lifestyle does not involve red carpet events. It revolves around work, dinner parties, lunches with the ladies, lectures, theatre, boating, domestics, gardening and Yoga.
My style is a mixture of regional dressing and fashion, dictated largely by climate, necessity, purpose and what my heart and pocketbook can agree on.
I dabble in quality not quantity.
I purchase clothing in neutral colors black, white, taupe, cream, grey.
Accessories are what give my wardrobe a more "fashion foreward edge" and I do not "stand out in a crowd" nor do I desire the attention.
Scarves, belts, pearls, diamonds, silver bangles, and some faux brooches are the "workhorses" that I employ.

Parlez vous francais?
I am wearing grey Lululemon pants, a tee and my grey and white Lulu hoodie, I am off to the studio for an hour to practice Yoga.
My mantra; dress appropriately for the activity or event.
