You've seen her many times in this space, but I don't believe I have formally introduced you to her.
Please meet the beautiful, talented, charming Babette. She has exquisite taste. She owns two boutiques in the town near us where I take my pictures -- one clothing, Coté Rue, the other shoes and bags. When a shop is a mere 45 minutes from the center of Paris, you have to have an eye, or, as we liked to say in the biz "a point of view" when buying for sophisticated customers.
With few exceptions, her merchandise is more than appropriate and "tweakable" for teens to les femmes comfortably ensconced in a certain age. She's that clever. Passing time in her boutique has proven to me time and time again, it's almost always the "how" something is worn, as opposed to "no, I could never wear that." (We'll be back to that subject at a later date.)
Her price points are moderate -- as in not designer, but definitely not Monoprix. Her style is spot on. She has a large, loyal following with moi meme among them, particularly when shopping for my daughter. I have bought so many great items for Andrea chez Babette that Drea has had friends who ask me to shop for them. The mission: "Buy anything you like, my size is_________. I trust you."
Apart from her fresh beauty, Babette is not, you will notice, an haricot vert (a green string bean) and she is soooo comfortable in her skin. I think one can learn a great deal observing her style.
