Did you know, my first career was in the apparel industry? Ultimately, I directed the design of the private label textiles for a 500 million dollar company. Part of my job was to follow fashion trends. That was many years ago but when I am not in the kitchen; I still love to seek out the latest craze.
The best place on earth to do this is Paris! After I wrapped with my A Taste of Paris group this year, I found myself with 4 days in the city.
I had a great time wandering around, window shopping in between meetings. It did not take a rocket scientist to see that WHITE for feet is IN like Flynn!
On every single block, store fronts were packed with white footwear.
From oxfords to mules, slides and amped up athletics
I adore these white boots with the western detailing. Wishing I’d brought these babies back to TEXAS!
And I’ll have to admit that I am still dreaming about this pair of leather brogues with the crazy pearl bars.
Can you guess what was in order when I got home??? A little shopping!
