Not that I expect a lot of sympathy, friends, but this jetlag…sheesh. I remember being able to shake off an international flight like no one’s business when I was in my 20s. But now? Well, I’m blogging at 4 am, if that tells you anything.
While my poor, disheveled internal clock repairs itself, I had to at least be sure you knew that today is the last day of the Shopbop Friends & Family sale. Use code INTHEFAMILY14 to take 25% off sitewide – and really, what says “family” more than that?
Since I have Parisian fashion on the brain this week, I thought I’d point out a few Shopbop finds from some of my very favorite French brands. After all, if you can’t go to Paris, at least you can shop like you did.
My love of By Marlene Birger is nothing new, but being in Paris means spending some time in her brick & mortar stores, which always renews my obsession. This is a collection of pieces that stand out and are undeniably special, but so incredibly easy to wear. I mean, that dress is just the ultimate wear-for-anything look. And totes like this one were absolutely everywhere in Paris…but not at 25% off.

ElevenParis was a new discovery on this trip – maybe a bit young for me in some cases, but they have that effortless French cool thing going on in spades. This maxi dress is exactly what I’ve been searching for for the past two summers. It’s sexy without being too revealing, and the price is definitely right. I have some concerns about the level of sheerness, but the description says it’s lined, so I think it’s worth a shot. I’d pair it with these killer APC booties for maximum “Parisian cool” effect.

Go to Europe and come home without a hankering for a leather perfecto. I dare you. Can’t be done. If you can’t jet off to pick one up in France, IRO is most definitely the next best thing. Black is the classic, but this bright navy feels fresh and perfect for spring, without limiting you to exclusively warm-weather wear.

But of course, the most fun for me is seeing what you’ve nabbed. So, spill! What are you treating yourself to this spring?
