    Oh, s’il vous plaît. Being American myself, I think it’s just a stereotype of French were only black.

    News flash from Ye Olde Worlde: we don’t know where Joan’s been, but Val, obviously, hasn’t been to Paris lately.

    Flash update…. gringos are expected to wear brown or blue shorts, wide short-sleeve shirts with big flowers over red, green or yellow (sometimes all three), sandals and a big camera hanging from their necks wherever they go (from desert to the north pole…. don’t forget to stick a bar or two of chewing gum in their mouths.

    Sandals with socks! And to holler “Can’t anybody here speak English?” while looking for a Mc Donald’s

    Goes on here too. My brothers helped my sister move to California. Drove her car out for her. Ate at Denny’s every day because one brother wouldn’t try anything new!

    Joan, hit the Internet first to find some Parisian shops you can afford. Then take two outfits, a credit card, and a STRICT limit on what you can afford, both financially and spacially. Buy an inexpensive suitcase in Paris first, then fill it. The size of the suitcase depends on your budget and your airline size/weight restrictions. Bingo! No more clothes worries, And if you’re a godd clothes shopper, you’ll have something really special to wear when going out with Wally back home.

    McDonalds on Champs-Elysees, about two blocks down for the Arc de Triomphe. Also, just take a couple of outfits and go shopping at Tati, the cheapest department store in Paris. Nothing like telling your friends that it’s just a little something you picked up in Paris.

    Best advice for women visiting Paris. Bring really simple stuff in neutral colors (black, grey beige, navy {NOT white; Paris may look clean, but it isn’t). When you get there start looking at how women on the street are accessorizing (like scarves). Then buy some accessories. They are cheap and plentiful, and working women in France are very cost-conscious. Much more satisfying results for much less time and money than buying entire new outfits. I worked there for 8 years.

    Yes, the French spend more on the basics (nice shoes, handbag) and buy cheap accessories. They don’t go over the top, just keep it elegant. Not something you can fake if you’re used to sweatpants and t-shirts, but you can at least look nice.

    Just raid your closet, Holly’s closet, and Evie’s closet. Call it ‘retro chic.’ Remember comfort. Done.
