‘A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.’ Coco Chanel
During our first day in Paris, as the Chanel show took place in the Grand Palais (my invitation must have got lost in the post), we walked around the exquisite Chanel boutique on Rue Cambon. The store was the very first and Coco Chanel lived in a lavishly decorated apartment above. It was busy and the smell of No 5 was intoxicating.
Some time later we wandered along Rue du Jour and into the very first agnes b. store. Having worked for agnes b. it is a brand very close to my heart and when in Paris you really can’t miss the opportunity to snap up a typically French agnes b. stripy top or beret. Oh la la!
