As many fashionistas and all people alike may know, the French love wearing the color black — it’s kind of their “thing”. With that in mind I decided to channel one of my favorite Actresses, Audrey Hepburn, in her role in the 1957 movie, Funny Face. If you have not seen it I highly recommend it — so chic; as are all Hepburn movies. There is a particular scene though where Audrey’s character is seen wearing this sleek, mod, all black number, in which she just dances her heart out. I decided that if I could replicate that look I too could be Parisian and therefore conquer my French exam today. As pure outfit planning (and hours of studying) would have it, I passed with flying colors. Obviously working hard and studying got me the grade, but I truly believe that my outfit had a large influence on my confidence. And that my friends, is what I love not just about fashion, but clothing in general — you can feel unstoppable when wearing the perfect outfit. So if you’re up for the ten extra minutes to plan an outfit the night before your big exams, I recommend you give it a try and see how you feel right before the exam — it can’t hurt to try! As for me it would appear that although one test is done, I still have seven to go. Let the studying and outfit picking begin!
