It’s not Paris week on the blog without a little Emmanuelle Alt, right? Right. Right!

This photo from fashion week brought me back to (one of) my biggest styling challenge of my life (drama being my least biggest challenge, obviously): belting my jacket/blazer/parka.

[You might recall that time I attempted to belt my down filled sleeping bag coat… it had a very low success rate. Garance and I don’t like to talk about it.]

Like French hair, it’s another one of those really effortless things that I just can’t seem to get right. I don’t have the right belt, or the right coat. For the time being, I’ll print this image out and stick it to my closet in hopes that someday I’ll be able to get it right.
