Isn't this adorb?
Seen on rue de Buci in a teeny boutique for ouch 75€
OK giant cat faces are Not IN but I couldn't resist this Lulu Guiness T at Uniglo for a mere 15€. woo woo. And it has a polka-dot collar which is Very IN for summer. Wish I looked like her...where's the rosé ?
Basically (and all the Paris Summer trends this season are Very basic if you ask me) just get out a flashlight and comb the bottom of your closet for What 2 Wear In Paris. Like this ages-old jeans jacket. You know you have one lurking there...
Shirt tails hanging out will Always be IN in Paris...
*Note the horrid runners/baskets on this otherwise chic Parisian. Elle mag has a full page on le Phenomene Running Gang in their current issue. Even super Fab Chanel has come out with a pair and let me tell you they are ugly. What to do? I will not follow the crowd on this trend but you can if you want...
The KED'S look I can easily adopt.
Let's face it. This is still a pretty look. Gawd only knows what to do with ones massive collection of Repettos (I wish...) Toss em back in the closet if U want 2 B IN in Paris I suppose...
I would have waltzed right by 'l'Esprit Hippie' look if Veronique hadn't given me the nudge. And it's Isabel Marant no less, who can do no wrong in Paris. Nail heads, fringe, Indian prints, the whole 9 yards etc.
Surely there's an old fringe bag and bandana in the bottom of your closet?
Here's another shocker - the old beat up jeans shirt! Who knew this could be a fashion statement? I used to sleep in mine. Do Not press yours with a steam iron. Better yet sit on it for a week to get the correct look. I kid you not.
A splash of polka dots anywhere is a good Springy-Summery look. These minis from Agnes B.
The dotty scarf (petit pois) is everywhere even in the marche for a mere 5€. You won't have to break the bank for this look PBers.
The bow at the waist fore or aft is Always a winner in Paris from time immemorial. These gowns are from the DO-NOT-MISS COUTURE show (free but long lines) at Hotel de Ville.
Once the heat is on, shed EVERYTHING, but do NOT forget a little bow at the back for a nice Parisian touch.
Well that's how I see it PBers on the streets of Paris.
