oh, and I bought some shoes

OK - I think I am just about back to reality and done with the Paris posts. (I may have one more coming on Denmark - we actually spent most of our time there.)  So just one more mention of Parisian shopping:  I bought a couple pairs of shoes at a little shop off on a side street somewhere that I can't recall.  

They aren't super fancy French designer (though, I must say that bringing the Hubs and me glasses of champagne in your shoe department was extremely clever, Louis Vuitton, and I was very close to buckling on some LV flats) but they are nicely made, comfortable, and I am enjoying wearing them.  The brand is La Scarpa Paris and it came out to just under $140 for both pairs.  I have searched all over the internet and cannot find a way to shop for these stateside.  But - the brown suede ballet flats are very similar to the J Crew ones I've seen on Summer's and Petunia's blogs!  I wish I had bought them in another color too so I'll have to keep an eye on J Crew's ballet flats for Fall (like I wasn't going to anyway).


  1. So funny, I have a pair of (pointy) shoes from La Scarpa! I used to live right around the corner from the store on Rue de Rivoli in the 4th arrondissement (not sure if it's still there). The quality is not the best but they sure had cute and inexpensive shoes. Love the brown pair!

  2. Super cute shoes. Esp the lighter color.
