T'is the season of the sales. The sales are here and more are on their way.
Are you, chic lady, prepared for them?
Let's talk clothes shopping today.
Do you keep wondering what the fashion trends are every year? Every season?
Then, I take it that you are not a French woman.
Why would I say that, you may ask?
PRINTS. Do you find prints difficult to wear?
Yes? Well, you are not alone.
Millions of other women find prints a minefield.
Prints. You can get it right...Or you can get it wrong.
Do you usually look like an extra from 'Joseph's multi-coloured dream coat' musical, every time you wear prints?
Question: How do you get women to buy half a blouse, while you save money on materials and manufacturing costs and have a good laugh at the women’s expense in the process?
Answer: You invent the deconstructed look!
Everybody tells you to wear what you love.
Well, I want to turn things around today. I am going to tell you something different.
I am telling you to buy what you will love.
I saw this black evening dress from Balmain today and I wanted to talk to you about it.
You see, just like every item of clothing, not all evening dresses are created equal. Some evening gowns will make you look tall and statuesque, while others will visually widen and squash you.
When you know how French women think, you know that they don't go shopping for clothes blind-folded. What I mean is that they always know what they are looking for... in detail.
Speak to a French woman browsing along the rails in a shop and she will tell you, for example:
Do you ever walk into clothes shops and come out empty-handed?
Well, I hope that you do!
This means that you don't go in and buy clothes indiscriminately.
What is the meaning of chic?
What is the difference between chic and French Chic?
Many people get confused between the two.
