L.A. is trendy in Paris

The French department store Le Bon Marche is featuring items that subtly suggest Los Angeles, but I guess you have to be there. Laurie Pike at The Chic Leak blog says it's Current/Elliott jeans, Bauer pottery, and a Kitson tank T-shirt covered with five-point stars. Also signs on sticks you wave from your car that say things like "Are You Drunk?" and "You’re Cute." Pike suggests that for L.A. authenticity a sign should read "My child is an honor student."
