Do you think your style has changed since you came to Paris? If so, how?
I think my style has definitely been influenced by the way Parisians dress -- on one hand, they really care about high-quality clothes and accessories, which has made me think a lot about what kind of purchases are worth it, and I've also been inspired by how structural their looks often are; around our school, people are always perfectly neat but never boring. At the same time, a lot of people in Paris wear dark clothes, and maybe I’m having a rebellious sartorial streak, but it's made me want to wear some outrageous colors, which I would usually shy away from.

What is your favorite fashion/look/style you've seen since you've gotten here?
My favorite style that I've seen since I've got here would probably be the short-and-blazer combinations in bright colors that are currently all over the boutique window displays!

As many of you may have been lucky enough to have been aware of this...last week Scott Schuman and Garance Dore graced the halls of our very own USC with their uber-blogger presence. Below are a few photos of the event by one of our very own StyleSCouts Anita Wong.
