I have been on a "French Kick" if you will. Starting with reading the book, Parisian Chic, by Ines de la Fressange.
Think of it more like the perfect travel companion for going to France. While the book does list several fashion tips (and faux pas), I was mostly excited to see all the wonderful places to shop, do & see while in Paris! Oh la la!
So, I have officially "planned" my agenda for when I go to Paris!
My first stop?
111 Boulevard Beaumarchais
Ok, let me see... what's not to love about this place? Known as "Paris's Top Concept-Store", it carries everything from furniture to kitchen accessories, clothes and even a perfume lab & florist! (Oh, and if that isn't enough, there is a restaurant downstairs!) Definitely a must-see!
sooooo cute! Oh! And they donate part of their profits to underprivileged children! What's not to love?
66 Rue Cherche Midi
Known for it's nostalgic antiques, as well as the Japanese owner's fabulous pastries, Mamie
I love the bowl display!
For some art & leisure:
2 Rue Louis Boilly
For some light reading...
224 Rue de Rivoli
172 Boulevard Saint-Germain
(you have to visit their website, if not for the fun video!)
Afterwards, once I'm ready for a night on the town...
17 Place du Trocadero
Check out that view!
Well, I'm ready to pack my bags! How about you? Have a fabulous weekend rêver de Paris!
