Rachel Takes Paris and Loves Every. Single. Piece. Literally.

OMG, Rachel and her entourage are at Paris Fashion Week, and it is OOC. The crew (sans Taylor the Martyr) hits up all the big name shows.  Rachel takes a private tour of Coco Chanel’s apartments (and puts her shoes on Coco’s couch), goes vintage hunting, and puts a period between each. And. Every. Word. She. Speaks. Here are her over-enunciated fashion mandates (be warned, “recessionista” doesn’t have a French translation):

The 80s are back in a big way, so go for structure and color. Ungaro’s asymmetrical violet party dress is on trend with just enough of a Dynasty influence. And Karl Lagerfeld’s shoulder-padded wool blazer is a must.

According to Brad, we need to invest in some stilts: platforms are here to stay. Watching John Galliano’s models traipse down the runway in mile-high shoes (which Rachel tries to heist backstage) made my feet hurt. Maybe his slightly less-torturous platform pumps could stand up to a night on the dance floor?

If practicality’s more your bag, pick a comfy sweater dress from Stella McCartney (who at some point dresses all of Rach’s clients). And…nothing says Paris chic (over and over and over again) like a piece of vintage jewelry from Chanel. Peruse current vintage Chanel on eBay (but make sure you read the guides to spotting frauds before you plunk down your cash!)
