Ahh Parisians…how you slay me with your sleek blazers, spikey heels, and skinnies for every occasion. Lots of black and just enough attitude to go with. Count Vogue Paris’ Editor-in-Chief Emmanuelle Alt as my style idol for the next few months…

Desiring an online space to explore well-rounded, inspired content in all topics she loves most, Erika created 'The E List' (formerly the Small Shop blog) in 2010. When not enjoying an “occasional" glass of wine and wanderlusting for even warmer climates, Erika can be found sharing laughs with friends and family, and trying her very best to keep up with her 6-year old daughter (yet failing miserably).

  1. Yes! That all black with white blazer combo is serious. I so want to get behind the denim button down action, but I’m suffering from 90’s high school flashbacks. Somehow I don’t think I wore it quite as well then as it’s worn now. Happy weekend!

  2. well you know she is my fave as we have already discussed. The only thing I am missing are strappy heels and white blazer. Will remedy that in the next few weeks. Love everything she wears!

  3. I couldn’t agree with you any more!

    And wait, is that little girl in the trench her daughter?? I remember stumbling across a photo of that little girl and thinking she was so incredibly chic for such a young little girl.

  4. Yeah she is out of control super chic!!!! It’s like 1 part rock n roll and 4 parts Parisian perfection!! Love your picks for an Emannuele look!
