I spoke to these nice English girls in Paris. They were wearing great outfits that work even for regular Josephines (and Joes, too) who actually pay for their charming goods!

I "met" (I mean, I stopped people on the street) these gamines--Clemente and Alima--in Paris during my inspiration vacation. Their outfits reflect the style of many teens in Paris right now. Mariner tees made famous by Picasso, gray Converse sneakers and dark pea coats reminiscent of naval uniform style. Skinny jeans, too. I was looking for an edge, which was hard to come by. Yet, I found the classic contemporary looks instructive as well. Any bright colors in Paris? Only occasionally.
As I saw it, Parisians adore combining black and gray (le noir et le gris). Olivier and Pierre present typical, yet chic, examples of this fashion truth. While I cannot claim to be a personal devotee of black and gray--I wore a tan trench throughout my trip--I enjoyed seeing the colors against the backdrop of beautiful, imposing French architecture, as seen here.

Anouk of Paris spills a few style stops in the City of Lights and describes her own style: plenty of black, one piece that stands out and is surrounded by other pieces to emphasize it, and occasional white. She's not a fan of the flea markets, but enjoys discount shops around town.

Some people just make sense as friends. That's how I feel about Seth Rogovoy, editor of Berkshire Living magazine and author of the recently published book Bob Dylan: Mystic, Prophet, Poet (unfortunately, this program does not allow underlining).
I don't see Seth often, although we live within a block of each other, but I'm always happy when I do. Here are a couple of photos from Seth. On the right is a picture (with Cassandra Sohn) from Harriette Joffe's fine art opening on December 5, 2010 at Bra & Girl in Great Barrington while the shot on the left hails from last night's annual, BIG party for I.S. 183, an art school in The Berkshires.
