I’ve been invited to take part in a competition by Le Noveau Paris, summing up my dream weekend in Paris with €1000 to spend. Paris is a city I’ve only visited once before, but I’d love to experience it with 10 times the amount I had back in March, so here is what my dream trip would entail.
A quick stop to the Chanel boutique is needed to inspect the current collection up close.
Then it’s off to the vintage markets of St Ouen to check out some vintage versions of the legendary bags. I would love a bag with a story (and a bargain). There’s some haggling to be done…
On the way back to the hotel, I’m inspired by everything, signs, architecture and especially people. There’s some awesome and unexpected street style.
The vintage Chanel bag bought at the market completes the outfit perfectly.
We grab a quick crepe before a quick look in some of the Marais boutiques. I spend a few more Euros on some vintage knits and dresses.
Then we watch the sun set by the Notre Dame Cathedral; I might take a few photos as inspiration for a future collection.
Quick! Not long until the train back to London leaves, but I remember to grab a copy of French Vogue before I board.
What would you do during your dream trip?
Update: I didn’t win the dream trip, but I do get a return ticket to Paris! I’m giving it to me Mum as I’m not able to take it myself, so expect a guest post from her soon!?
