Perusing Pinterest this week (aka my favorite website ever) I came across this great quote that I love. It’s titled “How to Shop Like a French Girl.”
“When a French girl shops, if she can’t afford it, she won’t buy it. If it doesn’t fit (or make her feel good, or flaunt what she’s got), she won’t wear it. If she can’t find it, she won’t compromise. If she loves it, she won’t toss it. She reuses it, rethinks it, lets it age.
When a French girl shops, it isn’t a solitary act of buying something new. It’s part of a lifelong process of editing her environment, making small but meaningful additions to her home, her closet, her life.
When you shop like a French girl, you buy only one of anything – and make sure it’s the best quality you can afford.”
It’s cool, right? It encompasses everything that I now think is important for anyone’s closet. I’ve recently realized that having the basics like a white button up, great pair of jeans, and a trenchcoat are so important to having that timeless look that almost all of us girls envy. So I’m lovin’ this quote.
And now some obligatory French fashion pictures to emphasize the French-ness of this post.
