Rebecca Perry Magniant may not have been born in Paris, but she certainly knows how to shop there. Chic Shopping in Paris is an excellent representation of the tour style I would want to use while planning my trip to Paris- one that includes the ins and outs of the exclusive Paris boutique scene! Equipped with photographs by Allison Harris, this pint size guide highlights everything from children’s’ boutiques, to places to find exquisite home fixtures, to direct sources for Paris’s best underground designers.
Each glossy page is furnished with the Parisian address of the boutique, Metro stop and hours of operation. Rebecca gives a general overview of what to expect, descriptions of how the boutique is unique, what gems can be uncovered within its walls and how best to approach store associates.
In addition to the book, ChicShoppingParis.com offers visitors a four hour guided tour with the choice of exploring boutiques, restaurants, museums and basically anything you can imagine.
Simply get in touch with the tour company before your trip, preferably two weeks prior, and let them know what tickles your fancy- and they will either cater a tour specifically for you or give you some helpful addresses to check out as you are going on your way.
Looks like it might be time for this shopper to hop on a plane to Paris and do some serious damage!
