Paris Fashion: Boots Are All the Rage!



Boots are all the rage in Paris this year, not just for winter, but to wear all year long.  And what a selection: knee length, above the knee, to the thigh, ankle height — they are everywhere. And in Paris, what can you expect but the most beautiful or outrageous designs you can imagine.  In every color, with fur, buckles, sparkes and more.  Here are just a few…

Boots are the main fashion item in every store in Paris, including the Bon Marche which devoted rows and rows to them. I took so many pictures that store security approached me and told me no photos were allowed.  I had to laugh; the French don’t understand blogs, which can bring them business, not threaten it!
