Rue Bonaparte in Paris down from the Cafe Flore and Cafe Deux Magots is always the best location for spotting the New Look in Paris Fashion. Women strut their latest look on their way for a drink at the Flore. This year it’s all about wearing the best shoe you can afford to wear with your jeans and your old motorcycle jacket. The spectacular shoe is now the focus

The standout styles out of your closet can bring out the artist in you. Shock your friends with a new electric color mix, your plaids, your prints , all mixed, even your hair.

Fashion today has taken a very big SHIFT to SHOCK. Ladies, you can go into your closet and pull out from all the years back to your college clothes and take out the following items.

Look for these used items in your closet for your New Look:

1 Ankle length skirt either pleated or layered either in print or lame
2 Short full sweater worn with wider palazzo pants only to the ankle.
3 Menswear jackets in tweeds or English plaids worn with long skirts and with T-shirt’s with cool sayings in big letters and 4“ wide belts
4 Menswear long coats in camel colors worn with Hermes style scarves
5 Berets are back, then add a black tulle fishnet to your old black beret

Mix these items for your new look and then take your savings and buy a pair of 1000$ shoes. To make THE NEW LOOK WORK YOU NEED TO INVEST IN SPECTACULAR NEW SHOES.

This LOVE SHOE will do the trick or this PINK LAME BOOTIE will demystify that you are wearing your old college pleated skirt and short ribbed sweater and you will be noticed as right out of Vogue Magazine.

Brand new and never worn before is the open toe see thru boot with socks and great toenail polish. This sexy boot can excite any shorter pant or any pleated or flared plaid skirt. Also the short flat see thru ankle boot is new and you can paint it if you are an artist. Today in Paris, artists painting your clothes in stores is an exciting new way to draw customers into your store.

Wearing the most expensive sneaker in your city is one way of thrilling yourself and your co-workers. This French sneaker is the price of a Cartier watch and it is best accompanied by a coordinating back pack. Wearing a back pack has replaced a handbag for all generations and I just began to wear them when I fly as they are not counted as luggage but as a purse.

In all of Paris this is the most extraordinary shoe with the front set buckle and the “LOOK AT ME” SUPERSIZE BOW. It’s in the window in a new store next to the Cafe Flore, one of the newest exciting stores in Paris, DICE KAYEK,a boutique that sells everything. You need not only shop for clothes or shoes in this store but jewelry, beauty and hair products.

The new boutiques are becoming mini department stores you can easily run in and out of. Now on a shopping spree you can visit 4 boutiques, try on all the shoes, and later select online (in the comfort of your own boudoir) all your new purchases. Shopping continues to transform to our times and the retail winners are those ready to change.
