Sometimes the best point of view on a place comes from somewhere else. This guidebook to shopping in Paris was written by an Australian fashion blogger based in Melbourne and as far as I can tell, Australia is the only place you can get your hands on a copy. I found mine not in Melbourne, but Hobart at the State Cinema Bookstore (AUS $39).
What I love about this book is it gives well researched and proven itineraries for day long shopping excursions around different neighborhoods and includes opening hours, metro stops, web addresses, handy tips & reviews from a trusted voice and nearby distractions like cafes, gardens or even manicure spots. All in a well designed package complete with photos, maps, illustrations and a sense of humor. Exactly what every girl wants.
I’m madly devouring the contents of this book. Who knows, maybe a trip to Paris is in my future . . .
