I have a new admiration for street photographers… They are brilliant, talented and very fast on their feet. I tried to capture Paris and her fashionable women… they were there, on the streets, right in front of me… and many were so gorgeous… and super stylish… but it’s tricky.
Photographing street fashion… without being intrusive, was a tough call… So many random factors seemed to hamper my way… I didn’t want to stop them and ask for a pose… it’s not the same… I wanted to try and shoot them as they were… infuse the photos with whatever had caught my eye in the first place.
Like this woman in Le Marais… She looked entirely striking… I wish you could have seen her… Her attention to detail and the way she walked and wore her fashion exuded confidence. Her wild blonde mane and leopard shoe boots added a touch of sexy to the otherwise tailored look.
the oversized coat, man’s style worn loose or cinched is a big statement this season…
french women know all about accessories and their importance… the belt, the watch, the texture of the tights.
We can’t all wear a look like this… our lives don’t call for it or our shapes don’t flatter it… I certainly can’t… but there are elements that can work for each of us.
I will wear an oversized coat this season… I’m yet to decide about the belt… I will try a wide version after seeing the idea worn so well… The lace up shoe boots will be added to my wardrobe… and I am going to wear dresses more often… This woman made me think feminine… made me want to dress up more.
Putting together an outfit is one thing… wearing it is another… Time + Confidence = Fabulous … xv
