Found In Paris

During my visit to Paris, I was treated to another Paris Shopping Tour excursion with the lovely Diane. She always has the best addresses for uniquely French brands and designers!

A Lovely Parisian Jewelry Boutique…

One of the shops she introduced me to this time was WHITE biRD, a small but exquisitely stocked jewelry boutique. Stéphanie Roger, the proprietor, has an extensive background in jewelry design and has worked with many major houses. But she wanted to create a more small, personal space featuring pieces from independent designers, and her shop is an intimate boutique with unique items.

I was swooning over just about everything in the shop. Much of it was over my budget, but then this unique ring caught my eye. It’s from Charlotte Chesnais, a French designer who worked with Nicholas Ghesqueière at Balenciaga for nine years before launching her own line. Her pieces are modern, sculptural, and abstract, yet quite comfortable to wear. (I tried on a few in the shop 😉 though this ring was the only one that came home with me.) The designs often have an element that seems to be defying gravity, which I find intriguing.

    I’ll be visiting France in Sept. I am so excited as it is my first time there. I was adopted so I did Ancestry and found out I am 25% French!

    I have many travel destinations on my Bucket List, but if I could only choose one, it would be Paris. I *will* get there one day – by hook or by crook. For now, I’ll have to settle on reading all your lovely blog posts.

    I was happy to leave a comment but the form would not allow me to do it. Paris just makes me happy. The art, the food, hearing French spoken, the fashion, walking along the Seine. Any time of year.

    Everything in Paris makes my heart sing and my soul celebrate. As a cyclist who rode my bike to work, I love seeing all the women riding bicycles throughout the city.

    I can’t help but think about St. Joan of Arc when visualizing Paris and the surrounding environs. Of course the cuisine is second to none, especially those wonderful savory sauces and desserts!

    I first saw Paris when I was 11 years old-55 years ago. It was love at my first sight of the city. I studied in France in college and spent many hours in various friends’ homes there. I return whenever finances and time permit.It is a neverending story and love affair. Nothing will ever change that.

    First time to Paris coming up in June and I’m quite anxious about the prospect. Your blog helps me feel a little less intimidated. Thanks.
