Black and pink is my favorite color combination anyway

Knowing full well that I would stick out like a sore thumb against all the neutral-colored Parisians, I decided to wear my new brightly-colored cardigan today:
Huge surprise coming up here-- none of the strangers I saw gave a rat's ass about my burst of color. No shocked stares, no angry mobs, no cries of "Oh la la!" or "Mon dieu! Elle fait quoi alors?!" Looks like I wore a bright magenta cardigan in the heart of Paris and lived to tell about it.

cardigan- Zara
scarf- ?
hat-Loehmann's?

So funny story- I most definitely wore a bright pink top to a grungy emo club here. I felt really awkward, but looked cute...clearly you do as well!

Loving your photos! Do they block flickr where you are? I can't access it!

I think bright pink was a good choice - what does it matter what the masses might think anyway?

Holy Crap...I go away for awhile and I come back and...You're in Paris! That's amazing. So jealous.

So, Parisians don't tend to wear a lot of color, eh? I actually didn't know that. I assume they like to wear black, but what about all the gamine-chic little striped tops and such? Now I'm curious!

A thing of the past! Haha, today's Parisians call those stereotypical Parisians "titis" (which is kind of silly, but French is such an adorably silly-sounding language anyway).
