Window shopping in Paris
Just returned from my favorite city where I celebrated Thanksgiving with my sister, her companion and my French friends. As an aside, we had an excellent turkey dinner at a French bistro where the chef is from California!
One of the highlights of my travels is seeing what's new. And the window shopping in Paris, especially, is unparalleled. I just love the way this outfit is displayed in the window of a little men's shop. It really shows a guy how to put himself together.
After looking at it for awhile, I realized that I can provide any guy with practically the same pieces through my relationship with J Hilburn. Check out our merchandise online, then get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-877-4963 to buy gift certificates for the men in your life and I will put them together even better than a French expert.
The perfect present for a Francophile
When I saw this silver charm of Paris on a chain, I flipped and bought it immediately ($160). The designer, Megan Fales, was in New York showing her work at a boutique owned by my friend, scarf designer, Meg Cohen.
So many people have commented on it (Paris is in two parts, the left and right banks) that I wanted to bring it to your notice. It's a wonderful holiday present for anyone who loves the City of Lights. Megan also does others of London, Los Angeles and Manhattan, so several bases are covered.
You can find her complete line at meganfales.com. While there, you might also want to check out her custom silhouettes of people and pets.
Casual chic dress for turkey day
Especially if you're entertaining, you want to look wow, but also feel comfortable. That's why you might want to consider a sweater and jeans. But not just any sweater or jeans.
This particular top has a gold sheen, which takes it out of the ordinary. Paired with jeans in a similar hue, the ensemble looks chic and smart. Finish with a statement necklace (and I put two to choose from) and a touch of leopard and you'll really rock that turkey.
