Fashion Tips


Debbies Basic Black opened on September 2nd, 2008. I've always dreamed of owning my own clothing store and have spent many years in retail, in sales and as a buyer for an independently owned boutique. I sell "simply elegant ladies wear". I believe if you look good, you feel good and when you feel good, you look great!

People and fashion are my passions! Originally intending to be a "little black dress" shop, the reality is a unique boutique selling only black and white separates for business and casual wear, specializing in the "little black dress" (known in the fashion world as the "L. B. D.")

What's really great about basic black is that it will go with any colour that is new and trendy - no matter the season. Look around you. How many wormen are already wearing basic black? These women are drawn to my shop and walk into their comfort zone.

I hope that when people come into my shop, they will remember me because I'm not just another ladies wear store; I specialize in the L.B.D. and only black and white separates.

It's not about how much you spend, it's about feeling great, buying wearable clothes and puttting a garment on that makes you say "this is the one". It gives me goose bumps when I hear it from the woman coming out of the fitting room!

Personal shopping by appointment is available, most of the stores in downtown Paris are closed in the evenings. I would like to offer customers a chance to see what is available locally before they take yet another trip to a non-descript shopping mall.

My customers are all ages and sized 4 - 16 who are looking for the classic, basic black and white or for a bit of fun and whimsy, pieces that stay in a woman's wardrobe for many years.
