Avenue Montaigne



Okay now girls you have not been to Paris if you have never walked down this street. If you watched Sex and the city (Paris episode) you will know what i mean, I was in shopping heaven. Thankfully that day I dressed up in heels (killed me though, how do those Parisians walk on those cobblestones without twisting there ankles) and spoiled myself to a day of shopping in this glorious street, now i'm not normally this exstravagant but after 3 hard years of setting up my business I was going to do some damage, kind of a reward! Every designer shop is on this avenue but my favourite store had to be Dior inside was so beautiful, the mirrored walls, the antiques it really felt like the most beautiful girls bouidior a must visit truely breath taking. My first stop was Prada shoes, then my favourite store Hermes were I bought a scarf and just a few enamel bracelets (still saving for a Kelly bag) Then moving on to Louis Vuitton a new bag and a diary which Paul had my initials embossed in gold (present from my hubby) you know you have done serious damage when you get offered a coffee and a petite yum at LV. Now for my story, my girlfriend is staying the following week at Plaza Athenee so at $1400 a night I decided I had to check out this hotel, so we decided coffee in the cafe would get me in the door for a sneak peek, well if your not staying there you are really looked down on, I have never felt so uncomfortable in my life, they asked us 10 times our room number which of course we didn't have, $30 and two coffee's later we couldn't get out of there fast enough, I was only really annoyed that I didn't do my shopping first and then walk in with all my designer bags, anyway I was happy to go back to my apartment, put on my flat shoes and head for coffee in our patisserie for $5 and felt completely at home while I pondered over how many years it will take me to pay off my credit card xx

I can't wait to see your photo wall, from these examples it's going to look amazing!

I totally agree with Anna. You have worked hard for it, so don't worry about the credit card...it's not like you go to France every day. Ness xx

You only live once, you can't second guess yourself--travel is so important to me, I would rather travel then have a new car, or a new pair of shoes, believe it or not, this was a trip of a lifetime!! So happy you had this wonderful experience.

oh goodness! What a wonderful trip, so happy you had such a fabulous time. And just perfect timing too, before the crazy rush of the holidays start. Good for you!

I have so enjoyed living through you this year as I didn't make it to Europe at all.

How lovely! Did you go to sleep with all your shopping bags surrounding you? We work hard and we should play just as hard. Congrats on your wonderful new presents. You deserve it.

Having flashbacks! A year ago my husband I went to Paris for our 10 year and I was lucky enough to bring back my first Louis Vuitton piece. Although he told me I could get a bigger bag back home I chose to go with the Speedy from "Paris." To me it was extra special to know I got it Paris. I called it my starter piece - ha! Glad you got to bring some special treasures back!

Kimberlee said...

So good to have you back, and wow you had an awesome trip! - THAT is what I call a day of shopping!! - Those hermes enamel bracelets are to dieeee for! x

What a dream! I long to visit Paris, but the timing has never worked out for us so far. So glad you treated yourself, think of the fun you will always remember walking those cobblestones despite the soar ankles.

Amazing!!!
