Ahhh Paris. I never thought it would be possible to forget the magic that this city radiates, but I had. Even in January with clouds overhead and rain most days, it was amazing. You forget living in America how much beauty and history there is in the world sometimes….
Everything is gorgeous, from the metros to nearly every single door (has no one done a coffee table book about the doors of Paris- and the hardware? If not, I will)
Notre Dame…. even the CHURCH had amazing wallpaper!
Isle de Louis- unreal in it’s cuteness (and I ran into Roberto Cavalli on the street there and almost freaked out)
Bridges covered in lock with lovers names on them, representing their everlasting bond… totally exasperated Andrew’s business sense that no one was selling locks anywhere near there.
A quick snap at the Rodin Museum gardens. I was FREEZING.
Ahhh, The Ritz. Flower arrangements to die for as well as shoes. I really might need these stripe/leopard/yellow snakeskin heels.
And this is what a $45 drink looks like. We went to Bar Hemingway and amazingly, it was worth it. 2 rounds worth it.
The Ralph lauren store on Saint Germain is REDONKULOUS.
But the most indescribable shop was Deyrolle. And while taxidermy is polarizing and sad, this place too our breath away with it’s displays, color and layering.
And then as we were leaving we walked out onto the sidewalk and saw this….
…and after having to look thrice and getting a good laugh, we of course tried to come up with clever captions for this picture…
“What is the return policy on tigers?”
“Mom’s online shopping has really gone too far”
(insert your own here)
Check back tomorrow as I will be posting images from the UNBELIEVABLE Maison & objet furniture show! Au revoir!
