Well, I think it also has to be the minimal makeup parisian wears, rather than that porn star makeup american wears.

Oh no! I see that look everyday, and suprisingly, guess what? They are wearing furry boots now instead of sparkly flats!

yeah big sunglasses are still parisian. Just cos theyre chic doesnt mean they're immune to the damages that UV rays from the sun do to their eyes! I think the key to parisian style is subtlety, classic pieces, a bit of experimentation, feeling comfortable in your clothes and making it look effortless. I think parisians know their heritage too when it comes to fashion so you can see it translate to their clothes.

trust me, they CAN overdo it. i remember at one point (1-2years ago) every single parisian woman had the diesel hush jeans (worn with chuck taylors and green "military" jacket)

I like the way you see us ! lol but believe me it's not because you live in Paris that you know how to dress ( not sure if it's correct english anyway)
But its true that we don't have the same sense of fashion and the same trends! Of course some girls wore the big sunglasses or other stuff that you had in the US but it's not the same ! I mean in the US everybody wears abercrombie mini skirt but in Paris even in summer it's not really usual for a parisian girl to wear a mini, I don't know why but its not! anyway it's a great thread and it feels good to live in Paris with u guys ! lol

Finally got the pictures that a friend and I snapped during the last day of Paris fashion week. So, here we go.. Consider it a trend report. The fashion victims are always the most fun to photograph

First we got volume.
Here at Vuitton.
