Ask Frenchye

Q: Where can I find fashionable eco-friendly shopping bags?

A: It’s always in style to help save the environment by choosing reusable shopping bags instead of the plastic bags used by most stores. I love the reusable totes by Envirosax, which can be found at Green Smart Gifts in Lakewood. The brand carries a variety of design patterns (check out the fun, colorful Botanica line). Mulholland & Sachs inside ETON in Woodmere also carries the smart carryall.

Q: I need to find a men’s European-style casual coat. Can you help?

A: Traditionally, I believe coats are investment pieces and you should buy a coat that is timeless and of high quality. Labels such as Theory, Hugo Boss and Mackage design fantastic European-style coats for men. Although these coats can be quite pricey, the classic tailoring of the jackets will work for many seasons to come. Also you can oftentimes find them at the end of the winter season for a steal, so start your seach now. Look at Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5th at Aurora Farms Premium Outlets, Nordstrom at Beachwood Place and Sanity in Chagrin Falls.
