Fashion: A Universal Language

Over Spring Break, I spent 5 days in London and 5 days in Paris.  I wasn’t sure what to expect.  I welcomed both cities with an open mind and open arms.  I went to these great cities to study the English and French Legal Systems.  I learned a lot about both legal systems and how they function.  While my mind was focused on remembering the court systems, my eyes were glued to their keen sense of fashion.  I must say, they dress pretty well!!!  You can see some of the differences in some of their styles from that of over here.  You can also note some of the similarities.

In London, it seemed like the people got really dressed up just because just like some of the people over here in America.  It didn’t seem as though they were putting much effort into their outfits,  like they just had a natural ability to throw anything together.  Their outfits didn’t look like they didn’t know how to put their clothes together because it was apparent that they knew how to piece things. In Paris, it looked more like they were going more towards name brand things.  Not regular name brands but items such as Louis Vuitton, Prada, Channel, Dior, Tiffany & CO, Folli Follie and Gucci.

This trip showed me that fashion is a universal language that is understood among those who understand it.  For those like myself who follow fashion, these two cities are like candy to someone with a serious tooth.  No exaggeration, these people dressed as though they popped out of magazines.

On this posts are pictures I took from magazines from France’s Glamour Magazine April 2011 Edition, Britain’s Stylist Magazine March 2011 Edition and London’s H&M Magazine Spring 2011 Edition.



This week was London’s Fashion week and The Style Scout snapped some pictures of people with  fashionable taste.  The Style Scout is a fashion blog.  Check it out!!!!

London?! Paris?! Me?!

So for the past couple of months I’ve been ranting on about  my spring break trip to London and Paris. In my opinion, who wouldn’t be excited?!?!  I’m traveling with the Criminal Justice Department.  I get to go with my two good friends/roommates.  I’m spending 5 days in London and 5 days in Paris.  My flight leaves Friday morning. I’m headed there to study the French and English legal systems.

This trip means a lot to me.  Even though I’m suppose to be thinking about the massive paper I have to turn in for this trip, the only thing running through my mind is “WOW! I’m going to be in two of the BIGGEST fashion powerhouses!!!!” I’m so excited. I can’t find the words to even express how I’m feeling.  If only we were going during Paris’s fashion week, but hey, at least I get to go.  I can’t wait to fill you guys in on some of the clothes and styles that’s over there along with the music they listen to.
