Even though it’s been very, very cold for the past few weeks in Montreal, heavy snow in New York, somehow it looks like spring is in full bloom in Paris. Especially during the first few days of the haute couture shows.

This time among the street style favorites were many colorful coats, quirky plastic and embellished clutches (especially Chanel perfume bottle shaped clutches in  black & white), lots of fur, layers, socks & sandals….

Here are some of my favorite looks for inspiration. Now I know that these clutches on the pics will cost a fortune, so I found some similar options that won’t break the bank, yet will give you that same, perfectly stylish look. (See below the pics)
