Years ago I was part of a yahoo group called "French Chic". I decided to leave the group because at some point I had to make some choices on how to spend my time, but I am still trying to retain the idea of "French Friday". Basically, it is the anti-casual Friday. On Friday one should try to dress better, chicer and more elegant. I like it because the idea of chic always conveys to me the concepts of poise, calm and relax: what better way to face the upcoming weekend?
So this is my "French Friday" outfit.
I bought the dress a couple of years ago at Upim, a store similar to target in the US. I tried it on, and I loved how it fit me so much I had to buy it immediately. Never regretted this buy!
I like to pair this black dress with the light brown boots. I saw this combination an a magazine and immediately decided I wanted to wear it.
I like this outfit because it is very simple, with very clean lines. I like the idea of the black arm warmers matching the black of the dress. I like how violet pairs with black, and I think there is no need to wear any jewellery here, because its bareness is what makes it noteworthy.
My bag today was this piece from Aérosoles circa 2003:
Not the same brown as the boots, but it doesn't clash with is. I like the crackled leather, it adds uniqueness and makes this bag become better with age. Another of my most prized possessions.
