Everyone has asked me what I have noticed here in Paris. What are the trends in the flea markets and on the streets? The obvious is that everything is so much more expensive and things made in China have crept into even some of the coolest shops in Paris. This year’s trend seems to be stiletto heals with platforms. The shoe is the outfit. I haven't seen this over scaled size since the seventies and yes....I noticed this in grade school! It doesn't look like anything that will last. It is too circus looking. I would be a salmon swimming upstream. Ok...so it fits that I am a low-heal salmon now (see grade school 1970).....problem is.... I mourn that I was once a stiletto girl.....shoes speaking. Purples and grays are still the strong colors here. Three years running. Works for me since purple is my favorite color!
