SHOPPING IN SAINT GERMAIN (WITH A BOY)

So we start here, with some pink. A cross between a pale pink with the slightest edge of bright, I knew this Celine Trio Bag was the one for me once I was shown that the side compartments snap off into separate clutches. What, so clever! This is the part where I said, sold. And Andrew rolled his eyes.

Wish I could easily proclaim the same for the clothes, where at the shop the incredible all over floral Spring pieces were peeking out from the racks. Sadly taking them home instead in the form of a Lookbook from the very nice sales guy who had been helping me. He also told me about the new Celine store opening here in New York. Celine surprisingly costs a lot less to get in Paris than here in New York, plus with the VAT refund I had to take advantage, so...

I throw in a pair of Celine Black Cat Eye Sunglasses. Ah, la joie de vivre. 

Same goes for A.P.C, it is lower priced in Paris. At least here I wasn't alone as Andrew was really happy about this fact, too. I went for a classic A.P.C. gabardine trench and a simple navy sweater dress that came with a thin leather belt.

It all came together nicely I think, as one outfit or as simple basics that I can wear over and over. After hitting up these stores back to back Andrew headed for the nearest Tabac sign. We don't smoke, but he offered me Gauloises, saying he thought I'd need a cigarette after that shopping spell.

Pierre Herme around the corner also helped.
