Why are french girls so cool? They all have the perfect messy wavy hair, they look amazing in horizontal stripes even though all they eat is bread and cheese. They just look so effortless. I try. I try really hard. Sometimes I wish I had whatever that something is, that je ne sais quois thingy that the "french girl" has.
Until that magical day when the spirit of Anouk Aimée responds to my frequent seances and inhabits my body, I will have this dress. Which, like a total american I had to go ahead and ruin by pairing it with a snakeskin bag and snakeskin crazy sandals. Too much is just enough. Gah, I'm so american. At least I get a little cool points for draping my jacket over my shoulders because I am too busy sipping a latte and writing poetry to put my arms in my sleeves.
