I haved to say , at the beginning I was not really feeling this look but after this springs Saint-Laurent show , I was completely taken by the X-large fedoras that floated down the runway. There is something truly chic about hiding under a wide brimmed hat , à la Brigitte Bardot ( or Erin Wasson , if you prefer) , whether you are shielding yourself from the rain or sunshine. This fall I would love to soften my quilted motorcycle jacket with a slightly oversized , taupe chapeau.

Thin

I am kind of obsessed with anything thin and dainty , especially for spring but even in winter. I love wearing “light” outfits , having pieces on that are sort of delicate and minimal. These thin strap YvesSaint-Laurent sandals would fit perfectly in my closet. There for, I absolutely need to find some replicas elsewhere.

St- Laurent shows the parisian girl

I was reading recently an essay in the August Paris vogue about the Parisian girl . It is no secret that Europeans in general have a different (read : much chic-er)lifestyle from people of my side of the pond. After reading this article , I realized just how elegant and perfectly non-chalant this alleged Parisian the author writes about is. Wearing vintage Chanel , never really having combed hair , smoking while doing just about everything and of course , all that being done in her le smoking . For his first collection , Hedi Slimane seems to be going back to the roots of St -Laurent , showing pieces like in past collections from Yves’s time ( le smoking and making them more modern , catering more today’s modern woman . Emulating the Parisian woman is quite difficult task , but Hedi just made it somewhat easier .
