I was in Paris for the holidays and came across the cutest brand called Paul and Joe. The store in the Marais district was really adorable and all of the clothing has the cutest most feminine details. I wanted everthing in the store!

Barneys New York CO-OP Brooklyn opened this week! The new store is located on the corner of Atlantic Ave and Court Street in Brooklyn Heights. While the selection of designer clothing has steadily been growing on Atlantic Ave over the last couple of years. The addition of Barneys CO-OP department store will sure be a change for the neighborhood which consists mostly of small boutiques.

I wanted to share with you a great new find. Heritage brand Timberland has introduced a new collection of boots this year that are really stylish called EarthKeepers. The EarthKeeper collection are partly made with recycled materials but you wouldn't know if from the looks of them. Finding boots that are well made and will last a long time for a reasonable price (under $200) is challenging these days. Timberland has been making craftsman style boots since the 1950s. My favorite design aspect of these styles by Timberland is the mixing of leather and suede. I have a pair of the EarthKeepers Bethel Buckle Tall Zip Boot in Bitter Chocolate and I love them. The reddish brown is a really unique color and they are so comfortable and sturdy. Check out more of the Timberland EarthKeeper collection here. And the best part is Lucky Magazine and Timberland have offered Fashion Plate readers $20 off their purchase. Shown: Madison Heights Tall Boot $190, Cabot Pull On Tall Boot $200, Bethel Buckle Tall Boot $190, Cabot Biker Boot $140.

Here are some photos I took at last weeks Tory Burch fashion presentation. The girls all looked lovely in their 70's inspired looks. Some of my favorite things from the show were the high waisted skirts and the bright pops of orange. Overall the styles were really pretty, flirty and feminine. Lots of pieces on my shopping list for Spring!
