Image     I was sitting in my car in Budapest at a red light when a yellow bug (also known as a “punchbuggy”) cruised past me, with a single bumper sticker on its ass that read “I (heart) Paris”.  For some reason, this struck me as awfully tasteful, in a minimalist way.  The yellow contrasted perfectly with the red, and the vintage car complemented the Paris theme really well.  I could imagine what the owner of the car might be like; young, cool, world-traveling trendsetter.  And I think to some extent, that’s your goal with stylistic choices.  You want them to exhibit who you are, without your having to utter a single word. I’m struggling with some serious automotive jelly right now, people.
