There’s something so magical about Spring emerging, isn’t there? Winter winds settle down into warmer breezes, Nature begins unfolding her first blush of flowers and baby tree buds… And of course, America’s clothing boutiques fling open their doors & illuminate their shelves with giddy prints and brighter colors. It’s SPRING FASHION, baby! 

Regardless of color palettes, this year, more than ever, the fashion world seems to be in revolution mode. All the old rules are out, and what’s most popular right now is simply what’s most rebellious, from political statements to mind-bending fashion runways. Is it any wonder that pink is an emerging power color in this climate, and that it’s being done in such edgy ways? Pink is like a smile, and right now it’s a smile we’re determined to put on our faces, whether we feel like it or not! 😉

But this ain’t your mama’s Barbie pink or posh pastel, ladies. Nope; this pink is PUNK!

From handbags to jackets, to tattoo-style roses on jeans, pink these days feels less girly, and more of a dare. And that’s what makes it a fashion statement!

coach pink western rivets bag stylespygirlWhen I spotted this pink Page Crossbody bag in COACH, I died. It’s the perfect sherbet color, which tends a little toward the sweet side, but the metal studs and precious rocks infuse it with a mega-dose of sassy!

XOXO,
Tanya

Paris
12 days $3,350

Explore the sights, sounds, styles, & shopping of historic Amsterdam, and the legendary summer sales of Paris! Reserve your spot now to join our women-only getaway to explore the sights, culture, fashions, and shopping of Amsterdam and Paris, focusing on the beginning of summer sale season in both cities!

style spy girl getaways
This Style Spy Girl Getaway is a dream-come-true for those with a taste for amazing scenery, historic landmarks, dining, exploring, and shopping. Wander the enchanting and diverse city of Amsterdam, with its sprawling canals, fascinating architecture, and hospitable citizens. Our stay begins in a 3-star or greater hotel near Grand Central Station, where each woman will receive a specialized map of the districts, landmarks, and best shopping areas of the city. From the 17th Century Negen Straatjes street boutiques, to Gucci and Chanel in the Museum district, to tucked-away thrift shops packed with vintage bags, jackets, and shoes, we will explore it all! Sightseeing excursions will also include options to visit the Anne Frank House, Van Gogh Museum, the famed Vondel Park, and more.

At the end of the week, we will hop aboard the high-speed Thalys train from Amsterdam to Paris, jetting through the picturesque summertime French countryside. Upon arrival in Paris, we relax in a private group apartment*, for planning and scheming the coming days. Paris plans include champagne in the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, Champs-Elysees, Notre Dame, the Louvre Museum, Musee d’Orsay, Musee’ Galleria, Saint Chapel, and more!

But this isn’t just a sightseeing tour; our main focus of this trip is the beginning of Summer Sale Season in Paris! Why is this such an important goal? Because sales are state-regulated in France, and generally run during two periods of the year: once in summer, just before the massive vacation exodus towards sea and sun, and once in the winter, shortly following Christmas. Department stores, boutiques, designer outlets, and even hardware shops clear out items from the previous season, gradually slashing prices over the course of the sales period. If you could get a couture designer bag for 70% off, wouldn’t that be the best souvenir ever?

  • Search for couture vintage treasures in the city’s many famed resale and thrift shops
