You ever go to the store and buy a new pair of sneakers. You love them so much that you walk out of the store with them on? That’s how I feel about these artists on the rise. You hear about them while they’re still fresh. While they still have that hunger to make it in them. You enjoy their music for what it is. The sound is great, amazing even. They are your new pair of shoes. Then something happens. You begin to see their celebrity rise and the content of their artistry changes. They become more cookie cutter and generic. They are just like your once new shoes, old and worn out. They may even have a scuff too many. You are officially over them. You are over it. Well ladies and gentlemen, that is what happened to me…again. This time the culprit is Theophilus London.
Shopping is by far every girls favorite past time. I’ve taken it upon myself to find all the best shops in Paris. After taking the plunge from my beloved New York City to every girl’s dream Paris *squeals*. I’ve literally got to start from scratch. Yet anyone who knows me is full aware of my capabilities. First stop…Colette.
After my first visit I got it…completely understood why this is the go to spot for the likes of Kanye, Jay-Z and Pharell. Once entering you are greeted with published art books and cheeky post cards. Further in the back are the most expensive phones and electronics I’ve ever seen. I saw a Blackberry 9900 for $ 3,500, the hefty price tag is probably due to the diamonds encrusted in the casing, sigh. Next to the phones and gadgets, you can listen to some of the latest music with their built in Beats headphones. What really got my heart a flutter was the display upstairs. It was womens clothing lined up like a museum. It was beautiful. They placed carefully selected outfits on mannequins. They even had a matching pair of shoes nestled beside the feet. Everything is exclusive, expensive and amazing. I felt my pulse rise just touching the different items. Beyond this area is another sub-room made for makeup, perfumes, and toiletries. If that weren’t enough, there is even a restaurant in the basement known as the Water Bar. This store isn’t just a store, its an experience. I love it…
