This place makes me feel like a kid once again. It´s so charming and it´s the epitome of French chicness! :)
There were a lot of designer brands to choose from especially in the shoes, jewelry, scents, cosmetics and bags section but since I´m on a limited shopping budget, I dropped by Longchamp instead and bought this lavender shade beauty, the perfect color for spring.
I also met a fellow traveller who flew in from London. She only went to Paris to do one thing, eat escargot aka land snails, lol! I´m not really sure if she did find a French restaurant who serves escargot( I´m sure there are a lot in Paris) but she did recommend me to buy and try these Godiva chocolates:
Boy, she´s right! These Belgian chocolates tasted heavenly and are one of the yummiest chocolates that I´ve ever tasted in my life! Until now, I still can´t believe that I resisted opening this box until we arrived in Spain, hahaha!
Anyway, if you want to move from one store to the next without changing streets, it´s best to pass by Avenue des Champs-Élysées. It has restaurants, the flagship store of Louis Vuitton:

Here´s a photo of me in my purple poncho taken almost three years ago while admiring the display window of the Louis Vuitton store from the outside:
The poncho´s gone but the Paris nostalgia remains in my heart. ;)
