A Peek at Paris Street Style

I happened upon this short video several months ago, and really enjoyed it.  It was filmed last summer on
a street in Paris, and captures the personal style of various women over the age of 40 who just happened to be walking by.

A number of the outfits were classics, and not surprisingly, they were my favorites.  I  loved the combination of beige, four-pocket jacket, belted olive shift dress, cognac leather handbag, and loosely tied-back ponytail (pictured above).  I also liked the gray sheath dress (shown below) and the simple, black v-neck dress shown near the end of the video.

I was impressed with the confidence these women expressed, especially given that they didn’t seem to know who was filming them.

I’m curious to know what you all think.

      Hi, Jean. I just checked, and it’s working now. Did you perhaps click on the video at the bottom of the page? The photo at the top of the page will not take you to the video. Sorry I made it confusing! I just added a photo cutline in an attempt to make things clearer.
