A Love Is Blind

Caroline told Harper's Bazaar, “Fashion gets boring to talk about after five minutes, but style is so much more, I can go on about style for hours. Style is everything-culture, your personality, and what you do-that's what makes style. It's who you are, and how you want to be perceived by others.”

In How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are, Caroline writes, “The Parisian never gives too much away. When it comes to revealing herself, she follows one golden rule: Less is definitely more.”
