If I could go Christmas Shopping, anywhere in the world tomorrow, where would it be?
Seriously, do I even need to tell you?
Of course it would be Paris...
We always visit Paris in the fall (cheapest airfare). Our first trip was in mid-October, and the weather was fabulous! Really balmy and warm in the day, cool at night. We thought this was normal for Paris. The following year, we went in November...what difference would 2 weeks make? A LOT. We froze!! We found out later, that particular Oct. was unseasonable warm, and my guess is, the following Nov. was unseasonably cold. I will tell you, the cold in Paris is damp and when the wind blows down those streets, it chills you to the bone. Cappuccino for 6€ plus tip became the order of the day. That is when we decided we couldn't live in Paris year round. Our thin FL blood will not take it.
We spent lots of time in museums. We even visited Victor Hugo's house, just to get in out of the cold! We also did a lot of window shopping. I'm not a shopper (buyer) but I am really glad we went in this store to get warm!
I think we are in Galleries Lafayette, across from the Opera House.
Here... take a look...
Had to try the Chanel...it's my favorite...
It was so festive and beautiful... and okay, due to the extreme temperatures, I bought 2 casual coats. One was bought out of necessity, and the other, well, it was just too cute!
