  1. to the Mothership!!! And the rest of the city of course.

    Hello again, yes it's me, I've come up for air! But not for long, because McSmoochy and I are off to paris shortly. There must be something in the water - we're all going to Paris! I hope it isn't too cold. Should I take my fur?

    I am a very organized traveller so of course I searched all the Hermes threads about shopping in Paris and my purpose of this thread is multipurpose. I want to know if any of my Hermes sisters have been to any of the places on my list of shops where I'm headed hoping to see preowned Hermes bags and perhaps some RTW (ok and maybe some Chanel couture too LOL).

    Secondly I wanted to share my list with you all who are heading over too because what good is a terrific cache of information if you can't share it with your H sisters, right? So I've left a few of the comments from the list under some of the stores for your benefit too....

    There may be a couple duplicative entries but if you have one you want to add to the list I am thrilled to receive it (even if it's a beautiful lingerie shop and not H) and I snuck in a couple unrelated at the end...forgive me! A bientot!!!!!

    (please sit down, this is a very long list)

    Chez Mamie
    What I like about this vintage store is that it's full of the classic things you want to wear, thanks presumably, to the finely tuned aesthetic of its owners. Most recent purchase? A small black croc bag with two straps: a longer chain and a shorter leather clutch. "Ca fait très Hermès Kelly," said the saleswoman. Agreed. 73, rue de Rochechouart, 75009. 01 42 82 09 98

    Alice Cadolle What was Alice Cadolle the woman known for? Inventing the bra. What is Alice Cadolle the modern day shop known for? Outlandishly priced made-to-measure lingerie. What a lot of people don't know? The shop also sells off-the-rack bras for under 100 euro. Still not cheap, but these bras are so flattering and shape-changing that you won't mind. 14, Rue Cambon, 75001. 01 42 60 94 22
    Just a few minutes from Morabito lies Scarlett, a resale store or dépot-vente on Rue Clément Marot next to Rose Brun, a ruinously expensive drycleaner and teinturerie of the haute couture order. For women, Scarlett specializes in all that is Hermès, Chanel, and Gripoix — the Parisian maker of fine enameled costume jewelry and camellias (especially for Chanel). Currently undergoing a spotlight turn with the appointment of Gilles Dufour as Creative Director and an upcoming store opening on Rue Cambon, the Gripoix selection here may be good, but in a far from poverty stricken neighborhood, it's not that much cheaper than new. Scarlett also operates a men's store on perpendicular Rue Chambiges, a couple of doors down from the eternal power luncherie Italian Le Stresa, and here the accent is on good vintage Vuitton and Hermès luggage.

We went to the luggage store Goyard and admired the classic trunks that once belonged to the Duchess of Windsor. At Dary's, a jewelry shop that specializes in antique pieces, Sofia tried on an aquamarine ring from the 20's,

  6. Such a long list...did I remember to ask you all if you have been to any of these stores, please tell us about your experience there? Thank you!
  7. :graucho:I should have mentioned too these are cut and pasted bits of info from different threads and also internet research...some articles as well. I didn't go shopping with Sofia Coppolla, LOL...but you knew that!
  8. should i take my fur, guys?? or too warm in nov?
  9. Nah, might be too warm in Nov....


    Have a GREAT time, be safe and please take pics for those of us who will be waiting a looooong time to go to paris!

  10. I will promise to take lots of pics RBB!!! i have been wanting to go forever. it will be a nice return to my favorite city!
  11. Wait a sec HC, since Paris is the City of Love and you are going with McSmoochy, outside of shopping for lingerie that you won't be wearing for very long, how do you expect to have the time or energy to go shopping?
  12. HC, what a comprehensive list you've compiled! Thank you for sharing, I will certainly bring it along. I am there Nov 20-24, missed Baggs by a day. Have a great time with McSmoochy, Paris is such a romantic place. Looking forward to your report when you get back. Bon voyage!
  13. HC, have a safe and wonderful trip! :smile: I'm sure you'll have some stunning reveal photos and exciting stories of your travels. :smile:
  14. WOW! going to paris with mcsmoochie! that's fabulous. please please please eat a chocolate eclair from the stand inside au printemps for me. i think it was au printemps. it was one of the dept stores. the second best meal i had in paris was from the little food stand in the entrance- a sandwich and a chocolate eclair.

    i went in november and brought my winter coat and was freezing. so much so that i got sick. so i don't know, a fur might be good. then again it was 4 years ago and the weather has changed....
  15. Oh wow, HC! That's one helluva list! How long are you going to be in Paris? I think it is getting cold now but it's not that cold yet in Paris.

    For some reason, I didn't see FSH on the list? Or did I miss it? Hmmm ...
