Shopping in Paris

While the snow is melting and the temperature is going up little by little, I greatly feel the urge to go out and indulge in my favorite activity: a day of shopping. Having been in a few places around the world, there's no place like Paris to do a little bit of shopping and window browsing. To me, a perfect day would be spend in various magasins all over the city.

First stop, Elie Saab at the Rond Point des Champs Elysées to look for a haute couture evening gown that I could wear to the Oscars.

A small walk around the block, brings me to Christian Dior to pick up a new bottle of Miss Dior Cherie.

And while I'm on Avenue Montaigne, I might as well stop at hotel Plaza Athenée, sit on the terras and enjoy a café au lait and a coupe autour du chocolat.

Pfew, this running in and out of magasins is getting me tired! I'd better head over to Rue Cambon for a few signature Chanel pieces.

My day of shopping is over and I awaken from my dream. I look around and I'm sadly not in Paris. But till then, I have something to look forward to!

Yours sincerely,

Here work and savings be damned. I'll buy a ticket and meet you at Elie Saab on the afternoon of the 22nd. Oh the time we will have.
Warm regards,

What time are you and Simone meeting on the 22nd. I adore Ele Saab dresses, they are gorgeous and so feminine - but definitely budget busters!
Loved this Paris shopping excursion, all your choices are perfect. You've done such a lovely job with this new blog!
Have a fabulous day!
