Bye Bye, Bebe!!

Yes, we are saying au revoir to our baby goodies. Though adorable and so much fun to purchase for the shop, they must go to make room for lots of grown up goodies just waiting in the wings.

SAVE 50% on all baby clothing, dishware, toys, decor items, etc. until it's gone!!

A Few of Our Favorite Things

We love the thrill of the hunt, the excitement of creativity, and the opportunity to find just the right spot in our shop for new treasures. Here are some of our current favorites!

*These gorgeous lighted sconces are crafted from old cabinet doors and given our signature detail of hand-poured plaster appliques.

*The entry way mirror re-interpreted in soft blue/green with aged mirror and plenty of pegs for backpacks and jackets.

*This magnetic message board is covered in a French script fabric and you'll find it exclusively at Paris Envy. Add a dose of style instantly to your home office or kitchen!

*Created from a vintage twin headboard, this charming daybed would be perfect in so many settings: a sun-porch, a nursery, even as a cozy place to curl up in a master bedroom.

Tokyo by way of Paris

We love Tokyo Milk, the newest offering in beauty products from the creators of Lollia.
With wildly imaginative fragrances and heavenly flavored lip balms, this is THE gift to give yourself or a very deserving friend!

The petite perfumes feature whimsical images and scents like Cherry Bomb (chocolate-cherry), Kabuki ( lychee and sugared fruit), and Dead Sexy (mossy, rich and perfect for both women and men).

Then there are the lip balms in Honey Blossom, Let them eat Cake, Opera Mint and more. Delicious, and calorie-free!

Don't You Wish You Had a Boyfriend???

One that makes you feel good, look good and keeps your secrets? Well now you can!!
Introducing the Boyfriend Jean. It's slouchy. Comfy. And is oh-so the jean of the moment. Wear them rolled up, sneakers and your favorite tank. Or with a slinky, sexy top and cuffed over stiletto's.
We have that new spring/summer tank, and lots of other must have tops.
New pieces are arriving weekly, in limited quantities, so hurry! (You don't want everyone to have your signature look!)

Also lots of fun gifts for you and your home, along with our ever-changing selection of vintage and handcrafted furnishings. Things are heating up!!

Paris Envy is Green with Pride!!

Every little shop that opens its doors must find a way to distinguish itself from the others, and to fill a niche. At Paris Envy our pleasure is to offer beautifully hand-crafted furnishings, home accessories and exceptional vintage pieces we've discovered and added our special touches to. Along with providing our clientele a truly unique selection, we are able to contribute to keeping our world "green."
How exciting to know that with every cast-off table, chair, and mirror we rescue we are recycling, breathing new life into, and preventing waste. And each of our hand-crafted pieces are created right here in Phoenix, many constructed of re-claimed lumber, zinc and other collected materials.
Beauty and function with a conscience. It's an important part of what makes us who we are.

Paris Envy Asks, "At What Price Fashion?"

...and answers, "At a good sale price, that's what!!"

Choose pieces from some of the newest and best on the scene -- in this case L.A. based designers with collections fit for the Paris runways. Save at least 20% on tops, bottoms and dresses, and head back into the world happy and just a bit more stylish!

And recently we did a "Vogue"style fashion shoot here in the shop with our favorite up-and-coming photographer, Alex Shaw, featuring our clothing pieces, jewelry and decor.
