Shopping along Champs Elysees and l'avenue Montaigne

Today I decided to take a break from my jewelry making and hit the Paris streets to do a little shopping. What better place to go for shopping then Champs Elysees! Truthfully, I usually just end up window shopping especially along l'avenue Montaigne... a girl can dream right!? Starting at the Arc de Triophme I headed down the street and first stopped at Cartier. They have beautiful sparkling jewelry and diamond, rose gold watches in the windows.

Next, it was over to Louis Vuitton. There window displays are always very imaginative and this time was no exception. The theme was a circus and there were small ferris wheels rotating with bags attached to them.

After checking out all my favorite shops along Champs Elysees, it was time to turn down l'avenue Montaigne. I fist came to this street at Couture week when Dior was holding their show here. (You can see my blog post about that by clicking here) This street is full of designer boutiques and it is my favorite spot for window shopping!

Of course, Chanel is my first stop.

I LOVE the bracelets stacked together! Maybe I will have to save up for these!

In the Chanel fine jewelry boutique, I found a watch and some brooches that I also would love to take home!

This Chanel shop is all shoes!

Passing by Emilio Pucci I snapped this shot of a beautiful dress that I liked.

Next, onto Dior I went. I love this Dior location. It is home of Dior Couture and some of their offices. They also have the best window displays.

This fabulous pink dress caught my attention with beadwork done on the front. I had to take a closer look!

Beside Dior was Baby Dior! So cute!!!

I have decided that I need something yellow this season after seeing these outfits from Prada and Chloe.

After all this window shopping I had to buy something, so I treated myself in H&M!!


  1. Wonderful eye candy! I look at your blog every day so I can get an idea of what I am in for (and it all looks great- I love your walks and the detailed posts!) when I head to Lesage in January. Yes, I am going for the professional couture course and will be in Paris ten weeks! Tres exciting! My French needs major work...

  2. ... loved that you got something at H&M at the end of that window shopping trip ... I'm coming in March for three months on Sabbatical - can hardly wait! I think I've now seen all the episodes of Signe Chanel - great way to wake up to a Sunday morning for the past few months here in Toronto. I'll be reading your blog post for ideas on where to go.

  3. Jennifer, that is wonderful news about coming to take the Lesage course!! You are going to LOVE it!
