Personal Style, Defined: Parisian

Ooh, I love this week's Personal Style, Defined because it's Parisian baby!  These days who doesn't love a bit of Parisian flair?  I'm sure Jill had a heyday coming up with gorgeous French inspired outfits.  As far as interiors go, I love the refined, classy look of a traditional French interior:
Had to throw this last image in-I see it in many a daydream in my future.

A chandelier is a must, and the internet has tons of great options at rather reasonable prices.  
I love the look of a simple pencil/charcoal sketching framed in a thin gilded frame.  Find a great original selection on etsy. 
A classy black lampshade looks right at home in a Parisian inspired interior.  
Have I mentioned French linens? Do I even need to? I have that represented in the sofa and pillows above.  
Also notice the sofa's sexy silhouette and dainty legs. 
You can find a little curvy side table like pictured above at just about any antique store, estate sale, etc.  I actually have a very similar one that was from my room as a child, which is now in Natalie's room.  
And if all else fails, buy yourself a pretty bike to prop in your entry or some Chanel No. 5 for your vanity and call it a Parisian day. 


Now saunter over to Jill's blog to get all dolled up in Parisian fashion!

(Side note: If you need a drinking game for this weekend, just come back to this post and take a shot every time you read "French" or "Parisian".)
