SO FRENCHY, SO CHIC

Abroad October 18 2012

Who’s Your? contributor Amelia has been in Paris for fashion week (of course…). She has put together her essential items she reaches for when in the most stylish city in the world. Add these to your travel file…

Sephora’s Express Nail Polish Remover
As soon as I get to Paris I make a beeline for one of France’s greatest exports… Sephora – the mecca for all things beauty. This nail polish remover pot is one of the best things to have in your beauty bag.”

iPhone Cover from Collette
Collette always have a great selection of iPhone covers, some that you don’t see anywhere else!”

Anything from Hermes
“No visit to Paris is complete without a visit to Hermes flagship store on the Faubourg, St Honore. You’ll want everything in there, from the cashmere blankets to the saddles in the saddle department – you won’t walk out empty handed.”

Holograms and Animal Puzzle Cards from the Pompidou Centre
The book store at the Pompidou Centre has the most incredible collection of art and architecture books, but it’s their extensive and creative range of cards and postcards that I love!”

A book from Galignani on Rue du Rivoli
“This is an amazing bookstore. I always find the most incredible biographies, art reference books, history books and coffee table books at Galignani. My latest purhcases include The Rose of Martinique: A Life of Napoleon’s Josephine by Andrea Stuart,  French Children Don’t Throw Food by Pamela Druckerman and finally, Van Cleef & Arpels: L’Art De La Haute Joaillerie Au Musée Des Arts Décoratifs.”

PS. Next week Amelia will be doing a recap of the top trends from Paris – on the catwalk and in the streets. Make sure your stay tuned and update your style file…
