Fashion Friday: Francoise + Jane

I am drawing so much inspiration lately from the timeless beauty and style of Francoise Hardy and Jane Birkin. They have a similar aesthetic that, for me, is pure good style.

Francoise has to be one of the most beautiful women I’ve ever seen. Her simple style of stripes, trences, fur accessories and classic patterns is perfection.

Jane is the reason we have the Hermes Birkin bag (even though she carried a basket, which is darling). Classic, sexy and yet laid back is what she embodied in her clothing.

I am loving the humor that this “affordable Birkin” provides- printed on a canvas tote by Thursday Friday, you can have the most coveted bag in history on your arm for a mere $35! And it’s printed on every side!

Here are some suggestion so you can get the Birkin/Hardy look!


  1. That “affordable birkin” is just too clever (c: I’m totally into Francoise Hardy…she really is so gorgeous. I’m just thinking about how nice it would be if all those things actually *looked* like that on me, too! (c:

  2. I agree- what fabulous style they both have. But your style is great, too- what ever happened to those outfit posts you used to do? Have a great weekend!

  3. Both of these woman are simply gorgeous! Love the style and the look you put together. Great inspiration. Annnnnnnd that canvas tote- too funny!! :)

  4. french women are just oh-so-gorgeous. and i loveee charles gainsbourg! couleur cafe is a great album for a dinner party or cocktails with friends :)

  5. Love the whole look! Was pondering how to shake up my spring wardrobe this year, I like this with maybe a few more punches of color like a great hot pink scarf! Loving some color this year!

  6. I dream of getting bangs like theirs, but know they’d never look good on me — hence the dreaming. Such fantastic inspiration nonetheless!

  7. it’s so interesting that even though they’re classics, they’re coming back around again (leopard, high waisted bell-bottoms..). fashion is funny like that. i’d wear your Birkin/Hardy look any day! xo

  8. Can you believe it was in the news that Hermes is suing lil’ Thursday Friday?!? Hermes has no sense of humor indeed!
