Pre-Paris shopping

January 5, 2011, 11:06 pm

I have one more sleep until I leave for Paris and I’m so excited! I did something in preparation for my trip that some of you may find surprising: I went shopping for Paris but not in Paris. Here’s what I bought. In dresses, I picked up two from Miu Miu, one from Jil Sander and a sweater dress from Pringle of Scotland, all in black of course. For jackets, I chose an Elizabeth and James overcoat and a gorgeous piece with leather sleeves from The Row. The boxing day (week? month?) sales were amazing on Net-a-Porter and Shopbop so I couldn’t resist. I also bought a super cute cap from Chanel and some amazing Fendi boots. See?

Can’t you picture me walking up the Champs-Élysées in this outfit? (I also have some Converse sneakers that I’ll be taking with me just in case, but I really am determined to do the entire trip in heels.)

It may seem sort of backwards to do so much shoppingbefore I get to one of the shopping capitals of the world, but it is Paris, after all. You have to step it up fashion-wise or I’m pretty sure they don’t let you in the country. ☺

I’ll be tweeting while I’m away, of course, so follow me herefor an inside peek at my adventure in the City of Lights. And tweet me your suggestions for things to see and do—restaurants, unique sights and, of course, shopping!
