french girls

loving this post from hair on the brain about french girls:

“French girls grow their hair long because they like how it feels down their back. They don’t give it much thought. Every few years they cut it short for a while, but it grows again.

They have a tube of expensive red lipstick someone gave them once (probably a boy) and they keep it in a dresser drawer. Mostly they forget about it, remembering the perfect crimson shade on lazy days when it’s rainy outside and they put on their mother’s Hermes scarf.

They put on the shoes that are the closest to the door when they leave. And on their way to get cigarettes, they end up up on JAK & JILL or The Sartorialist. But they’ll never know because they only use a vintage typewriter and only to write letters, when they need to.”
