Paris shopping...

Like any girl who visits Paris, a day or two shopping is essential and I always include a visit to the French children's boutique Bonpoint in St Germain to buy something for my daughter. Even if you do not have a little person to buy for this store is worth visiting at least once just for the building and styling alone! Just like everything in Paris, it is so gorgeous...


...I love the floor!

Ah... bonjour Madame!

Ques que c├ęst? I can sense and see that you really had a wonderful weeks around Europe. Sad, you didn't drop by Stockholm. It's pretty cheap to come over wherever you are in EU.

Anyways, I keep my fingerx X nxt time.

Hmmm... I guess I need your expertise of doing a make-over my lil lounge, won't yah? Will send you and email with the space I needed your assistance, badly §;-)

Have a wonderful day Missy and take relax after the trip.

I would love to have these floors, my image exactly. Wonderful site! A little envious of all who have been to Paris recently, even though I have traveled the world. A spot I have at the top of my list!

Loved it all. Why is it Parisiennes know how to merchandise beautifully without overwhelming?

Windlost said...

Glad you enjoyed Paris. We are going again in April for 2 weeks and I can't wait. I discovered Bonpoint last time I was there. Gorgeous things. i don't have children but must have spent hours browsing through children's stores as everything is so exquisite. We just don't have stores and things THAT beautiful here!

Thankds for the memory!

So lovely Amanda, I would change my 5 boys to girls in a instant to shop here. Although they may have something to say about that!

When I was 7 months pregnant with my little girl, we stayed in Paris for 2 months. Let me just say, I visited Bonpoint every. single. day!

Oh I love Bonpoint.... I was in that very same store about 2 years ago...that very same little wood house was there... magic.. pure magic!

This is such a beautiful store and I love your photos...though I have to admit, I don't know how you got away with taking them! Last spring when I was in that shop, I got seriously reprimanded when they saw me take a photo with my iphone! They proceeded to follow me around the store into each room, watching me like a hawk thereafter...it still didn't ruin my lovely experience browsing.
