The Strasbourg Christmas Market or What I've Been Up To

I haven't been doing much crafting lately, as predicted, but I have been doing some sight-seeing:

My family came out from Arizona to celebrate Christmas in Alsace, where T. is from. This was their first time in eastern France.

I was disappointed not to have a white Christmas, but I guess having mild weather is a boon for air travel. ;)

I'll see everybody after the New Year, celebrate safely!!

Orléans Lookbook

Here's another local magazine - this one's called Rococo - with some photos of everyday fashion.

I'm not especially inspired by this page. Black, black, black everywhere:

But this page is a little more interesting.

I wouldn't wear those leggings, but at least it's different. And I like that she combined them with the mint-colored sweater.

And Samantha's style is something I could see myself doing.

What do you think? Is this what girls (they seem to be mainly girls here, i.e., teenagers or 20-somethings) in your town dress like?
