At Paris Paris, a fresh batch of clothing arrives every week, staying ahead of the style curve with new, trendy items from name brands. Fashion consultants guide visitors through an inventory of tops, jeans, scarves, and dresses, helping them create a personal style that's hip, urbane, and tinged with a European elegance. In addition to adorning their bodies with the latest in seasonal fashions from across the pond, shoppers can reimagine their living spaces with adorable furniture and home accents.
Bead Bar's bead baristas guide jewelry crafters with a wealth of bauble knowledge, provisioning projects from the amply stocked store. Students can bring their own spirited refreshments to make sessions merrier, journeying past bead-bedazzled walls and cascades of clasps to reach the workshop, where they'll discover the basics of jewelry creation during basic stringing and crimping classes (click here to view the schedule). After pupils choose one of five bracelet kits—which include a clasp, four fire-ball beads, finishing beads, wire, wire guards, and a strand of firepolish beads—instructors model foundational stringing techniques and imbue new crafters with a sense of symmetry and color combinations. Bracelet makers learn how to highlight feature beads and artfully select accent beads, then take an oath to use filler beads only for fighting crimes of bare-wristedness. To bring closure to both classes and adornments, the staff imparts advice on selecting clasps to make sure bracelets can't leave wrists or ankles without asking permission first.
