It is very difficult not to fall into the dangerous line of crazy shopping whilst you are in Paris. Specially if you are a londoner like moi. Everything is much cheaper so it feels you are saving while shopping!
Stores like Sandro, Maje, Claudie Pierlot, Comptoir des Cottoniers and Antik Batik, among many others, can be found all over Paris and at a much better price. Even more around July-August because the sales period is still on (hoorray!).
As you all now I was recently in Paris and therefore I wanted to give you some tips on where and what to shop these days.
If you are out and about in the city of love, you´ve got certain options depending on your budget:
I am just going to say this: Levi's denim shorts for 5€. Wait for it: leather shorts for 5€. Real leather shorts! I swear I am not lying. These shops have amazing finds but it involves a lot of searching. If this is not your thing, then you never heard me saying anything.
For splash the cash: Colette & Galeries Lafayette. Shall I say more? There you´ll find the most exclusive, funky yet beautiful stuff you could ever think of! Not to mention it is just worth paying a visit to contemplate the beauty of the place itself. There's also a rooftop terrace with the most stunning view of Paris. What's better than that to finish your shopping day?
