I've never been particularly classy (though I DO try). No, I get too sidetracked; too enamored with the latest variations of the classics to do those classic gamine styles justice. Several years ago, I read Parisian Chic: A Style Guide by Ines de la Fressange, the super-guide to looking clean and neat like a classy Parisian. While reading, I discovered what I already knew--my biggest hangup with gamine style is that I get bored. I want color, bling, razz-ma-tazz! Which can sometimes look JUST TOO MUCH. 
And yet, I go there. 
Le sigh....
It will have to be enough that I feel clean and neat (if not completely Parisian) when wearing the occasional breton stripe.
