According to Vogue, ‘There’s a certain cool girl look’ Parisians have down pat. From perfect Breton stripe shirt to classic cigarette pants, Fr girls claim some of the chicest staples in a working wardrobe.

La Pâtisserie Viennoise, Diptyque

It may be Spring but hot chocolate/chocolat chaud ☕️ is always a good idea in Paris 
La Pâtisserie Viennoise is tucked away on a side street is easy to miss - 8 rue l'école de médecine 75006 Bus 86, 63 go right by it.

City-Pharma & Cafe Deux Magot

Some wise travelers know Paris is a Mecca for makeup and City-Pharma is their bargain land Holy Grail. At 26, rue du Four 75004
I met up with two clever ducks Cheryl & Debbie on Tuesday because they'd ordered the
6-pack of Paris Letters and wanted to pick them up while in Paris (instant gratification).

La Naissance des Grands Magasins 1852-1925, Le musée des Arts décoratifs


Yesterday was the 1st day of the big department store show at MAD and I was there when the doors opened.

Are you a devoted department store browser (different from a shopper)

Parisians & their chiens, The Real Emily in Paris

Today’s post was supposed to be on Art 
Paris vernissage at Grand Palais Ephemeral yesterday (on from April 4 - 7). The cutout Bichon Frisé is by Tursic & Mille. Woman with purse pets by Yunzo Paek.

But I couldn’t resist showing you Paris 
chiens/dogs from this week. Seen at the new Pompidou BRANCUSI Retrospective. Evidently Bichons Frisé are IN.
