Jersey Girl, Texan Heart: Smartling

j'adore paris

When I was approached by Smartling an online translation software company to talk about fashion abroad I was so excited!  We all know that this past summer I went back to the motherland (aka Poland) to visit my family, and I work for a company where Mandarin is spoken more than English, so of course I’m used to other cultures and languages.  Smartling gave me this awesome topic about what would be my dream night abroad along with what I would wear, eat, and how I would deal with another language.  Don’t worry I won’t cheat and pick Poland (of course that would be my number 1 pick) because as you know I’m bilingual and Polish is my first language so let me pick a country where I would visit instead.

Where would you go?

As a fashion fiend I would have to say France.  My dream night would of course be spent in Paris to see the Eiffel Tower and fashion. 

How would you deal with a different language?

First of all I already know more than one language so I’m used to different languages and as I stated early I work for a company that predominantly speaks Mandarin.  I took two years of French when I was 12 so I only remember how to say my name is Monica, hello, thank you, please, and goodbye.  I would bring a translator but I would probably brush up a few key things you need to know how to say in French prior to visiting.

What would you do?

I would go to the Eiffel Tower and some really fancy dinner, even if I was alone.

What would you eat?

Caviar!  I would also probably eat every single pastry and baguette in sight too.

What would you wear?

Oh this is the fun part.  I mean I always wanted to be Madeline from the book series when I was younger with the yellow hat and blue coat, minus the appendix part, and I’ve always wanted to wear a beret style hat in Paris, but I would have to say I would probably go for something really classy.

I’d go for a little black dress.  I mean Coco Chanel is French and she was the first to introduce the infamous little black dress; the staple that every woman should have in her closet.  I would most likely go for a classic and elegant Breakfast at Tiffany’s type of look.  I feel like that look never goes out of style.
