#8: Speak French

Erin Burke

“In Paris they just simply opened their eyes and stared when we spoke to them in French! We never did succeed in making those idiots understand their own language.” 

― Mark Twain, The Innocents Abroad 

This year we resolve to speak French beautifully.

After living in Paris now for three years it appears that Mark Twain and I have learned the same French.  And back to class I go where my teacher is making me take two levels simultaneously to catch up. This year, I’m determined to learn the type of French that French people actually understand. 

And while learning the language, might as well dress the part.  With classic French school girl looks at the Fall/Winter show by Saint Laurent and even more found at J.Mendel’s Resort and Stella McCartney’s Pre Fall 2015 shows, I’m not the only one tapping into this trend. 

Inspired by the fashion of the 1968 student protests in Paris and the classic French school girl uniforms, with their A line skirts, pussy bows and perfectly titled berets, these looks are ideal for transitioning into spring.
