headbandit 's Thoughts:

This spring, I fell in love.

My heart aches, not for a boy, but a city.
Paris.

Over Spring Break this year, I took a trip to Paris, France. It was the most amazing city I had ever been to, and I immediately fell in love with the culture, the food, and especially the fashion. Women (and men) in Paris exude a feeling of individuality and class. Not every single person was totally “dressed-up,” but I did not see one person (other than the American tourists) who looked like they hadn’t given any thought to their outfit. I was especially impressed and inspired by the way parents dressed their young children. Peter pan collars, corduroys, black stockings and red mary janes…one little girl I saw on the subway on inspired this look in particular. She was wearing a striped shirt and a little black skirt, too adorable for words.

Interestingly enough, after receiving this gorgeous Olsenboye dress from chic rewards, I was instantly inspired to create this look. The sheer tulle of the skirt is so elegant and floaty. The shirt adds to the look an idea that is stereotypically French (sailor stripes), but in a chic way. The vintage binocular bag was an unconventional, yet trendy touch, but overall, I feel très, très French.
The Parisian aesthetic is all about mixing trends with one’s own ideas, and always having a piece that sets one apart from everyone else. I feel like this fits in nicely with the Olsenboye concept as well.

I think this is my favorite contest entry to date…I feel very honored to even enter a contest sponsored by such iconic, amazing young women. Thank you, Olsens and Olsenboye!
