It goes without saying that Paris has wonderful shops and boutiques and I ventured into many of them...
One of the gals on the tour and I took a leisurely stroll through the Chanel boutique and had a browse at the clothing...which was lovely but exceeded my budget and the garments do not suit my retired lifestyle.
We popped into the fabulous boutique ~ Didier Ludot.
They sell vintage and gently used designer goods.
If you want to purchase a Hermes Kelly bag this is a great place to look!
Didier Ludot stock luxury goods and there are lots of tempting treasures inside the store!
The white cocktail dress would be fun for a summer party.
And how about lunch with the ladies in the red Chanel suit?
There were so many shops with gorgeous clothes...
I just did not devote time for much shopping.
I wasn't on a mission for clothes...
I wanted to experience the art, history and culture of Paris.
I bought this vintage Jeanne Lanvin silk scarf at a pop up vintage shop in BHV.
I bought this striped top in COS in the Marais.
The Hermes scarf which I showed in a previous post was my big purchase.
(a wearable souvenir!)
I bought this fun grey mesh sweater and silver necklace
in the Marais at a shop whose name I have forgotten.
Since I have been home I have been lusting after a black leather jacket like those I saw women wearing in Paris...
and my lovely daughter saw this one on sale and the rest is history.
I bought this rustic vintage jug in the south of France.
I wanted to have something to remind me of the countryside and this will be perfect for my roses.

Very basic shelter...and at this altitude it would make for a very cold night.
The stone buildings are so quaint and picturesque.
I bought French soaps, chocolates, magnets with the Eiffel Tower depicted on them...
hand made semi precious beaded bracelets, a pottery necklace, a book for the grandchildren, scents from Hermes for my sister and husband.
