Paris Day 2


After a yummy French breakfast outside a lovely café, our second day in Paris was entirely dedicated to shopping. We started off at the Champs Élysées, continued at the Galeries Lafayette and at the end also stopped by the very hard to find Marc by Marc Jacobs store. We ended the day with a long walk from the Jardin des Tuileries to the Eiffel Tower which looked so magical at night.































Outfit: scarf - H&M, coat - LaRedoute, gloves - H&M

Also on my second day in Paris I could make some experiences I want to share with you.

Tips for your trip to Paris:

 - Some things are definitely more expensive in France than in other countries, for example Essie nail polishes which cost about 3€ more than in Germany! Other things have the same price like clothes from internationally represented fashion brands like Zara, Promod and Co. I don't exactely know about the prices from other French brands but I compared the prices of L'Occitane hand creams which cost the same in France and Germany. Maybe some of you can tell me a product that is cheaper in France than elsewhere?
- It would be a good idea to go to a tourist office on your first day in Paris as you will find a very helpful shopping guide in there. It contains different shopping tours depending on your fashion taste leading you through the city. Like this you can combine shopping and sight-seeing and you will find some helpful tips for hip restaurants and interesting fashion museums as well.
- Entering the Louis Vuitton store in Paris is more like entering a museum so take care not to lose your way in there! (true story...)
- If you never entered a Naf Naf store you should do it in Pairs. French chic at it's best plus super pretty decoration (see 4th and 5th picutre in this post).
- Shopping at the Champs Élysées or at Galeries Lafayette can be a bit depressing because of the prices but you should go there nevertheless, be it just because of the beautiful shop windows!

I hope you liked today's pictures. What is your impression of Paris so far? Have you ever been there and if yes, what are your shopping tips for the city?

  16. Warum sieht in Paris alles schöner aus? Leider weiß ich auch nicht was in dort billiger ist aber meine Schwestern schwärmen noch immer von den noch warmen Schoko Croissants die sie in Paris gegessen haben. Allein dafür wollen die da noch mal hin :-)

  17. great pictures, I lived in Paris for almost 3 years and really miss it - and I know what you mean, it took me ages to find the Marc by Marc store even though I was living there :)
