i'll be honest, i didn't come back from Paris with the suitcase full of goodies that i imagined, not sure why, i was in plenty interesting boutiques but didn't come across much that was that different from anything i could find in any other capital city. in the end i splurged on gifts for my friends and family including Tin Tin goodies for my mother and cooking ingredients for my housemates.i LOVED Collette on Rue Saint-Honore so much i exclaimed a little too loudly "if we get married i sooo want my wedding list from here!" - my poor boyfriend went red in the face! he did however buy me this beautiful bracelet by Montse Esteve :)
another gift from my boyfriend was this cute shirt from Vintage Desire on Rue des Rosiers for only 5 euros!there's little flower details down the buttons which is cutegorgeous candle from Nature & Decouvertes which smells like talcum power - amazing ^_^some storage from Muji for my bag of jewelery - and some pendent charms and chains from a flea market near Bastillesalt & pepper hoodie and sheer t-shirt from American Apparela selection of Magazines including Buck, Tank, Jalouse and Adam & Eve
so yeah i didn't get much, but what i did get i love and i got to enjoy so many places in Paris. i'd never thought i'd say it but i definitely want to go back some day!
