I am a huge fan of the ready-to-wear label Comptoir des Cotonniers, discovered just under a year ago here in France. It ties in so nicely all the elements I love to wear and I find myself gravitating towards its shop windows whenever I pass by. Thank heavens it's July (one of the two months of government-mandated sales here in France) and I can actually do more than window shop. I waited a few weeks until they slashed prices for the second time and then went in for the kill :) I highly recommend planning trips to France around these sales (typically in January + July) to curb the awful exchange rate. It's nice to feel like you can buy one thing before heading home!
P.S. I tried on those shoes (on super sale too) and while they were fabulous in every way, they killed my feet in just under one minute. So incredibly sad. I wish Aerosoles + Comptoir des Cotonniers hooked up for a season.
