After 8 macarons, a sampling of foie gras, 4 multi-course meals, 2 Alaia shoes, a vintage Givenchy skirt and 10 new scarves, our shopping & dining Parisian adventure is now over.
But before I turn into a fat sack (yes, I gained weight which I don't know how after all the walking we did which seemed to have been as far out to the moon and back!), and before I officially start my wallowing over the end of our vacation, let me share with you all how each of those fabulous day unfolded right from the very first day!
Arrived in this very comfy travel outfit:
-- shirt: Karl Lagerfeld Key to Cure '08 -- sweater: BCBG --- jeans: J Brand --
-- belt: Banana Republic --
Stayed at Le Meridien Etoile.
When we stayed here for New Year's Eve '08, they upgraded us to their Club President suite and given a free continental breakfast at the club floor with views of the Eiffel! This time, not as lucky. Oh well, we're in Paris and nothing could ever dampen our spirit!
For dinner, we went to Leon de Bruxelles. This is our favorite place for 'moulet et frites' and is probably our 5th or 6th time here! Yes, for me, it's THAT good! So good we even went on a foodie pilgrimage last year and visited their original restaurant in Brussels!
Was feeling so jetlagged so at 8PM, we called it a night and I then slept for 10 hours. I know, such a waste of time to be sleeping for that long while on holiday but it was much needed because day 2 was packed with a full-day shopping itinerary!
