What on Haute Will I Wear in Paris?

My godmother, who is being our guru tour guide for the 30th birthday Paris trip, sent my mom and me an directions about how to pack for Paris:
  • organize clothes in clear ziplocks - 1 to 2 gallon bags - as it's easy to unpack and not so personal when the inspectors go through it
  • denim OK (this formally said "no" but I misread her email...i think it means stylish denim, not walk-the-dog-jeans)
  • no tennis shoes if we can help it (this one i was prepared for...tennis shoes are for jogging in)
  • dressing for the airplane (no sweats and grubby). this means black knit pants, black knit top, long black silk sweater, black slip mules, black pashmina (well, I have that one thank goodness), and light socks to walk through security
  • very comfortable and simple black or brown shoes, possibly from zappos.com, where you can buy many pairs at once and send them back (groan...! but I know that many do this)
  • cropped pants, no wild patterns (no problem)
  • only a few accessories, as they weigh one down (this will be tough), so scarves are good and light
  • lightweight windbreaker with a hood. we're going to Normandy for a day trip. i don't have one of those, since i'm not a big pategonia fan. i mean, i like it, but it feels too sporty for me most of the time. hmm.
  • i don't normally pack cosmetics in my carry-on, but she does, and i think most women do, and i think that as a 30 year old, i should start. it's...womanly.
Feeling as if I had to prepare for a test, in less than a month, I went shopping today. At this rate, the homeless people are going to be better dressed than me. My daily non-tennis shoe are Reefs and a pair of red Camper sandals. But I'm going to need more than that. I'm hoping I can find shoes in Paris, so I'm not too worried there. And a purse. I don't have a suitable purse. But again, Paris. The rest of it - the black knit everything - will be tough. I have a few dresses, and found a swoopy, sleevless BCBG shirt from Fieleen's for $19.99, and a yummity cream and tan wide striped wrap hooded sweater from Banana for a little more than that ;) . And of course my pre-Paris pedi in a new darkly violet Thigh High polish. So it's a start.

I hope Mlle Smith will chime in and help! If I were to buy a pair of creative walking shoes before Paris, where should I look? I tried 4 pairs today, including a Palladium, and none were in my size.

Oh dear.
