"Five ways to spot a proper Parisienne" by Bali Barret

Handbags are not pets
“She’ll dump her Kelly bag on the restaurant floor-none of that giving it its own chair to sit on.” 
Traffic regulations
“She never crosses the road at a pedestrian crossing. Life’s too short and rules are made to be broken.” 
Navy is important
“She prefers the richness of all kinds of (French) navy to the ubiquitous black.” 
“She changes her perfume like her scarves, on a daily basis. Perfume counts as an accessory, after all.”
Time and motion
“She always sleeps in her jewelry. Why take it off in order to put it all back on again the next morning.”
There is something so intriguing about the French woman.  Though she is mysterious, I, like so many others, long to possess her wonderful, attractive, chic confidence. Naturally, these five things were divinely insightful.

P.S. Have you seen Garance Dore's fantastically swoon-worthy video series "Pardon My French"? Could she be anymore chic & fabulous? Holy moly, the lady is talented!
