parisian shopping

When I think of Paris I think of three things:

1. Food (specifically macarons, croissants and cheese)
2. Unparalleled architecture and art
3. Shopping 

(in no particular order)

This post focuses on my most recent purchases in Paris. We'll just ignore the fact that I still haven't looked at my credit card. Why would I ruin a perfectly good day? Never.

No, I didn't purchase a Céline bag. I marveled at it at Bon Marché, but couldn't pull the trigger. I did however purchase some cute items that didn't really break the bank.

Merci (beautiful store that is unlike anything I've ever seen)
Skinny Gold Ring

Chevron Sweater from Montmartre

Striped shirts from H&M and some goodies from Kookai
Shirt//Necklace //Shirt

Water Color Picture from Place du Tertre

I also managed to snap this picture by Rue St. Honoré. Parisian street style at it's finest. Pretty sure the girl on the right was on her way to a casting call for Paris Fashion Week. Trés Chic. 


See? I was a good girl! Nothing outrageous, and all practical items. Stay tuned for more posts inspired by France and Denmark!

Bisous! xo

You make me want to go EVEN more than I already do!!! Use the crappy french I can barely remember 4 years and I can remember to say is I love you and my name and ask where the toilet is -Sad right?!

I never really wanted to go to France before, but I recently read Bringing Up Bebe and I'm not oddly intrigued. Your post certainly hasn't helped, with all those awesome finds! I'm so curious about the Diptyque candles, too. I hope you had a wonderful time!

So hard to be this good in Paris, well done. I could spend all my money on baguettes and macarons. In fact, I did. At least you got something nonfat out of it!
