My Parisian niece Megan took me to Etam where I bought a very chic outfit. She helped me pick stuff out and we had a great time.
Etam is a chain and very reasonably priced. I wish there was one in the States. The price reflects the quality. Not high quality but very nice looking. I was thrilled and felt Parisian.
