It’s no secret that the Parisian Fashionistas have been outdoing us in the style department for decades. No wonder that they are all so thin, with designers like Coco Chanel, Christian Dior, Emanual Ungaro, Jean- Paul Gautier, and Yves Saint Lauren at your front door step- who won’t be?? My desk is covered right now with runway photo’s from the couture shows in Paris. Just so you get the heads up, the trend for Summer and Fall 2011 is as follows: Polka dots, recently appearing on knitted hot pants and tank tops in Miu Miu’s 2010 resort collection, then later on the fall runways: on suits at Marc Jacobs, on sheath dresses at David Koma, and adorning sheer chiffon blouses at Stella McCartney. So my girls, with so much great fashion in the air, I couldn’t help but think how I could bring you a taste of Parisian Couture right here, right now. Check out a few very simple ways that you can infuse a little European flair to your personal style.

1) Romantic Chiffon dot peasant blouse from Jackie’s Boutique Couture Collection- Black and white dots are not only adorable but synonymous with Parisian style. Wear this beautiful blouse tossed over a lacey cami for a peak of sexy, a steal at only $52. If you want to edge-up your look, cinch the waist with a wide belt (click to see belt) and wear with black dress pants, a skinny dark denim jean or white slim skirt. Tres, Tres Chic! (Shop Blouse)
2) What could be more stylish than a pair of red poka-dot platforms. OMG these are off the hook cute and Guess shoes are both economical and comfy. Girls, I love heels but if you haven’t tamed your arches, a simple ballet flat or red sandal is a great op as well. (Shop shoe)
3) This Tory Burch Nylon Tote is so sleek and timeless. It’s always a good idea to invest in a great bag every season. I always buy at least one…at LEAST one. I love this style because you can wear it day or night and it’s a terrific work bag as well. The size is great for most woman and it will even hold your Ipad. Nylon is a great choice because it’s light and tran-seasonal. (Shop Bag)
