Interview on The Rachel Review: How to Dress like a French It-Girl

Bonjour mes amis,

I recently did a video interview with my lovely friend Rachel Walker of The Rachel Review about how to get that classic French it-girl style! We discussed French confidence, basic French expressions (particularly when shopping!), and the must-have style staples to capture that famous “je ne sais quoi!” If you’re loving the Zara blazer dress I’m wearing as much as I do, you can shop that look here!

    Great picks! I totally agree with the inclusion of the Longchamp bag. I’ve heard they’re used all over France. I love mine too, so light and packable. Glad to see I’m doing something right in my styling.

      You are absolutely doing something right, Arlene! Once you have a Longchamp, you really cannot go back. And it’s so interesting that this is a product that it so widely popular in France and in the U.S. xx
