The Guide To: A Simply French Afternoon with Paul & Joe

Paul&Joe Robertson
Last week, I was contacted by the Paul & Joe rep in regard to their upcoming super fab event on Robertson Blvd.  Showcased was the new Fall Collection (hurray!) and an array of goodies from their couldn't-be-more-chic cosmetics line.  Served with girly drinks and sweets, we were joined by C Magazine and the kind of staff that made me want to stay all night.

The Women's Fall Collection 2012-13 is the kind of sexy chic both befitting for a night out on the town and for meeting parents the next day for brunch. Simple lines and shapes make way for easy-to-add, timeless pieces.  Since I couldn't choose one outfit, I thought to share the whole collection via their most recent runway show (below).



The Men's Fall Collection 2012-13 is (ever-so-appropriately) as French as they come: collared shirts in sherbert shades with cardigans to match.  The corduroy detailing gives it its much-needed masculine touches to complete outfits nothing short of tres chic.

My single favorite piece of the night was worn by one of Paul & Joe's delightful ladies (below left).  The leopard print brocade pant.  Amazing & YES.  Also, slipped into this little black number (below right) at their recommendation and absolutely loved how soft the material was as well as the draping.  A layering must for any wardrobe.

And the perfect place to continue your afternoon de Paris?  The Little Next Door on 3rd St, of course.  Just a hop, skip and a zip away from the Paul & Joe Robertson shop, this darling cafe has everything you need.  Their cafe au lait and croque monsieur is to die for, not to mention the authentically delectable desserts.  Praline macarons, my dear, each with a tiny praline baked inside.  Délicieux!
