As Paris Fashion Week comes to a close, we’re reflecting on our favorite street-style looks and getting better acquainted with the ladies who wore them—by creeping around on their Insta accounts. (You’re like a friend from afar if you follow!) Because not everyone can accessorize with an umbrella, puddle jump in stilettos and layer three shirts, we love the women who try and succeed. Bien fait!

When the fashion world is gathered in one city, sometimes on one block, there’s no shortage of amazing shoes. Here we’ve assembled some of the styles that stopped us in our tracks—it’s a thing we do.

Our Global Fashion Reporter Kristin Yamada is never without her camera, constantly visually and mentally processing fashion. Her job is to travel to Fashion Week and other assignments, document style on the street and report back to us what it all means.

She feeds perfect photos to The Thread for our galleries and slideshows. But what you don’t see are her physical trend reports, hefty tomes which she delivers and explains live to an internal audience. Where did this collar come from? What does the combination of this sneaker and this handbag indicate? Kristin has the answers.

Also she’s just cool. Here she is talking about packing for Fashion Week.

We love collecting travel tips from our adventurous friends. Even if we’re not sure when we’ll get to use them, we squirrel them away in the hope that someday we, too, will get to visit these amazing locales.

Since Milan is next on the Fashion Week circuit, we asked our street-style photographer, Kristin Yamada, about her favorite places in the Italian fashion capital. After all, Kristin is basically Italian by choice.

Here’s what she told us not to miss when in Milano.
