Paris Shopping: Dressing Up the Cocktail Frock

Doing some Paris shopping for an occasion that calls for cocktail attire? A little black dress is the way to go, chérie!

The Annabelle New York mink stole provides luxurious warmth and chic sophistication, and the exquisite diamond-encrusted earrings and […]

In 1863 Aristide Boucicaut introduced the world to the concept of the department store with le Bon Marché and changed shopping forever. Nearly 125 years later, Colette Lerfel and her daughter Sarah […]

Paris Shopping: Seen on the Streets of Paris

Capes, no longer reserved for superheroes and academics, have been making a comeback. This was the first season that I saw Parisians wearing these little wonders en masse. As a whole, those who walked the boulevards—strolling or dabbling in some idle Paris shopping, perhaps—wore their capes quite conservatively.

Paris Shopping: Black Is the New Black

In Paris black is the new black. Mais, chérie, that doesn’t mean you can’t add a little creativity to the mix when you’re out for some Paris shopping or you’re planning your ensembles at home. So we put together a few styles that accomplish just that.

The geometric jacquard of Zero + Maria Cornejo’s Biri dress is inspired by a field of crop circles […]

Paris Shopping: Seen on the Streets of Paris

There are coats that you can make a style statement with and coats that just keep you warm. Now that the first day of spring has come and gone and the Paris shopping scene looks a little brighter, we Europeans know we still have to keep warm—but at least most of us won’t be bundled up in huge parkas. It is the coat that must make every outfit work and work with every outfit. Here’s a selection of pieces […]

Paris Shopping: Seen on the Streets of Paris

Fashion is one of the first things I think of when I’m about to wander around the streets of Paris. “What will I wear today?” is a big question when there are so many artists of dressing and well-appointed Parisians walking around. But right now when I get outside the last thing I want to do is parade up and down the boulevards, and it’s not because I’m ashamed of my clothes; it’s because I’m really, really cold.

The nightlife in Paris is second only to New York’s, offering everything from chic cocktails to art happenings. But in the fashion capital of the world, dressing to impress when out on the town can be a daunting task. To help you with your Paris shopping, we have pulled together two ensembles […]

Paris Shopping: Seen on the Streets of Paris

As we begin our warm-weather Paris shopping—and ask winter to kindly leave as we beg spring to spring—we have to admire the cold-weather ensembles that the ever-chic Parisians have put together in these frosty months. Here are a few of my favorites.

First, a romantic look in Pigalle that proves winter doesn’t have […]

Paris Shopping: Seen on the Streets of Paris

There’s still a chill on the streets of Paris, but we all hope spring will take over the city and Paris fashion at any moment. Until then, women are keeping warm and looking fabulous in woolly hats.

From edgy black unembellished numbers to clouds of soft white wool and fur pom-poms, it is worth taking note of beauty and the beanie. From what I have seen, Parisians don’t tend to wear a lot of makeup, but when they do, Paris easily becomes one of the best cities for luxe understated looks.

Paris Shopping: Seen on the Streets of Paris

I am in love with the variety of boots being strutted around the boulevards of Paris. Good boots are a weekend must for strolling around the markets by Ledru Rollin, going to brunch in Belleville or doing a little Paris shopping in le Marais.

With the changeable weather, ankle boots have been proving a hit come rain or shine. Some are beautifully embellished. Of the pairs I spotted, my favorite was cowboy influenced and embroidered with an explosion […]

Paris Shopping: Seen on the Streets of Paris

There is something so right about wearing black in Paris. Maybe it’s about fitting in, but maybe there’s something about black that forces one to concentrate on silhouette and texture by eliminating color. I often come back from my street-style prowlings with many photographs of beautiful black-and-white ensembles that women out doing their Paris shopping have thrown together, but I can’t discuss black outfits in these posts every time, can I?

Paris Shopping: What to Wear Après-Ski

Ah, le ski. We have been inspired by the recent snowy weather in Paris. When the temperatures drop and the snow falls, our absolute favorite activity (other than Paris shopping, of course!) is to hit the slopes for a day—or weekend!—of skiing. From the Gare de Lyon, you can take the TGV straight to the Alps for some of the best skiing Europe has to offer. After a long day in the snow, the question is, “What to wear après le ski?”
