On Sunday evening, a lovely friend invited me to a cocktail party with her. The invitation called for guests to dress in 1960′s French chic. How charmingly specific, right? At first, I wasn’t sure how to proceed with choosing an appropriate outfit. What exactly did chic mean to French women in the 60′s? What in the world do I own that will work? So I turned to the handy-dandy Google technique and realized that some of the most beautiful and iconic fashionistas came about in the 60′s: Brigitte Bardot, Jean Seberg, Edie Sedgwick, Francoise Hardy, etc. Below is the look I ended up assembling. I call it Bardot meets Seberg. In other words, it’s Bardot’s hair with a Seberg inspired outfit. Oh, and Sedgwick chandelier earrings. I’m kind of digging it!
