Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The secret of dressing like a Parisian starts with les bonnes adresses: the coveted, seldom-shared addresses of the best shops. When author Rebecca Magniant moved to Paris five years ago, she made it her mission to find the best boutiques in the city-and that she did. When some of her finds impressed her impossibly chic belle mere (mother-in-law), she knew she was on to something. She went on to found Pariss premiere shopping service, Chic Shopping Paris, and now reveals her prized list of boutiques whose offerings embody quintessential Parisian style.

 

Even as the world seems to be getting smaller, with everything imaginable available on the Internet, there remain some things that can only be found where they are designed and made-in France. Chic Shopping Paris contains the best, offering clothing, jewelry, lingerie, makeup, shoes, hats, art supplies, toys, stationery, and more-more than eighty venues in all. So let the contents of Magniants little black book inspire you to bring back a piece of Paris in your bag.

Some of the shops include

•Da Rosa, an épicerie that supplies luxury products to some of the biggest restaurateurs in town

•Blanc dIvorie, a shop specializing in gorgeous French linens and housewares that are all in white, gray, or beige tones

•Fabrice, a boutique selling over-the-top, chunky costume jewelry

•Karine Dupont, a young, fun designer of bags known primarily to insiders

•J. C. Martinez, whose amazing collection of antique prints is as good as anything at the famous Paris flea market

•Sabbia Rosa, a designer of gorgeous silk or satin lingerie who will make things to order

Synopsis:

The founder of Paris's premier shopping service, Chic Shopping Paris, reveals her prized list of more than 80 boutiques whose offerings embody quintessential Parisian style. Travelers can bring back a piece of Paris in their bag.
