Oh so Frenchy, Oh so Chic
I recently purchased a new tote style handbag in the summer sales. You know the sort; made of cheap vinyl and at half price. We all have a dowdy bag or two. It doesn't matter if it gets dirty or wears out, and I know it will, as it wasn't worth much. It wont be used for going out or for special occasions. But every girl also desires something special, something more, something exquisite. A quality handbag that when you slip it over your arm and head off out and about, says that woman has style and appears well polished. Recently I discovered a little touch of Paris in Adelaide that can whisk you to Europe as soon as you walk in the shop door.

This marvellous store is on Glenelg's shopping and dining strip, Jetty Road. Touche de Paris stocks high quality all leather handbags made in Europe. For a woman, a handbag is so much more than a practical necessity. In our times a woman's handbag shows her sense of style, and reflects her unique personality. It can often be a status symbol and if it is of good quality and is something different, it can makes a woman feel different and special.

Touche de Paris was previously located elsewhere on Jetty Road, but now they have relocated to much bigger premises, and what a fabulous store it is. Now they have a lot more space and that means room for much more stock. The chic light filled store has a spacious feel, with room to walk about with the much coveted handbag over your shoulder to see how it feels. Also plenty of room to try out the fabulous range of designer luggage, allowing you to imagine you are at an airport, testing how the wheels spin around.

The store now stocks over 2,000 handbags, and 500 clutches and evening purses. Oh and there is so much more than handbags. They also have accessories, such as superb soft and feminine scarves in amazing colours, jewellery and watches, European shoes and sunglasses. For winter there is French textured tights, gloves and warm beanies and caps to show some winter style and shake off the winter blues.

All stock is sourced form Europe with many French brands and designer goods to offer you the latest season fashion and current styles. The store also stocks a range of accessories for men. Men everywhere in Europe use a man-bag. It doesn't phase them, as even men seem to have too much to carry around these days. In Europe high quality leather handbags and shoes are the mainstream. A woman wouldn't think to go out the front door without dressing in vogue. The handbags in cities such as Florence are incredible. And the shoes are like nowhere else in the world. That's is why the proprietor of Touche de Paris goes to France and Italy to do her buying and brings back the latest looks and designs, available for you at the store right here is Adelaide.

One item in stock I admired was the travel goods. There is some useful yet beautiful overnight bags, just big enough for a weekend liaison - ooh la la- with plenty of room for a few boutique shopping items to take home. And of course I did find my favourtite handbag.

This store really has something for everyone and every occasion, with such a good selection to suit all age groups also. Some items are high end or top shelf, and limited to two in stock, so you are sure to find something to match the unique person that you are.

So when next in Glenelg call in to see the helpful staff at Touche de Paris for a classy update to your wardrobe. Better still make a special trip. You can pretend you are having a day in Paris, then top off your shopping spree with a cafe au lait at one of the sidewalk cafes on Jetty Road. With that sylish new handbag over your shoulder you will feel oh so Frenchy and oh so chic.
