75 Parisiennes

I feel confident is assuming that almost all of us wish to mimic, in some way, the style of French women. Be it their interiors, fashion, attitude or je ne seis quoi. Which is why I thought sharing these images from the new book 75 Parisiennes was appropriate.  It features BOTH, in an honest, documentary style way.  The effortless look, variety of styles (and herringbone floors) of these ladies reflects the French lifestyle very well, in my humble opinion.

    It’s out! Erin, do you have a copy? I was photographed by Baudouin, for this book, when I lived in Paris. I’m dying to know if I made the cut!

  14. Erin Gates says:

    And PVE, I agree. I need to lounge on the counter. :)

    I’m ordering it from Amazon.fr, shipping is only 8 euros, and I think it’s even a little cheaper in Euros when you do the conversion :)
