Paris in the springtime 2007


March 7, 2007
Bonjour! Just got back from Paris!! The trade show was exhilarating and so much to tell you!! Something about the European designers just thrill me! Yes, charcoal is hot but even more hot is color. Plums + Purples are super hot!! So are metallics again…
Not shiny metallics, but more subtle pewters and brownish – golds. Really gorgeous. More on the fashions I saw later….but first what we discovered on the streets of Paris. 

Nothing like running around Paris with a great friend. We had one day to shop and eat our hearts out. Here is how our day went as we skipped around the Marais neighborhood:

Tresor – 6 Rue du Tresor – sweet women’s clothing store that I just discovered.

Le Jardin Moghol-53 rue Vieille du Temple: amazing Indian prints, bedding, curtains.
My house is filled with curtains, throws, pillows, and my favorite robe is from here!

Miller Et Bartaux-17 rue Ferdinand Duval: handmade clothing, small collectables. I just got the coolest watch from Tokyo here!!

L’Eclaireur-3 rue des rosiers: amazing clothing and space but very $$ Good people watching!! Also don’t miss: Colette-213 rue Saint Honore-super chic and Barney’s type store with eclectic clothing, items of desire, and great people watching!

After a few shops, we were starved and needed a little treat at:

Mariage Freres-30 rue du Bourg Tibourg-definitely have lunch here + pastries. Do try the tea and champagne drink…and the caramel tea.

Next onto our favorite Moroccan shop:

Mia Zia-4 rue Caumartin: Moroccan clothing, accessories, bedding…gorgeous store.

Then onto the best macaroons and Parisian chocolate on the Right Bank:

Laduree-21 rue Bonaparte: be sure to go to the macaroon store and chocolate store. Incredible restaurant/tea salon too.

Across the street, don’t miss:

Simrane-23 rue Bonaparte (across the street from Laduree): great cotton robes, bedding, prints, pillow cases, totes, etc.

Our favorite restaurants in Paris so far are:

404-69 rue des Gravilliers ( reservations a must.) the best Morrocan food!
Café Noura-121 blvd du Montparnasse ( Lebanese Food! Don’t miss it!
Fish La Boissonnerie – 69 Rue de Seine ( must make a reservation!
