~ lavish lush and luxurious ~
this elegant establishment is where the worlds rich and famous
come to be pampered.
A state of timeless elegance pervades,
from the white gloved attendant who spins the revolving door,
to the stylish concierge forever at your service,
to the "Louis xv" decor of the Alain Ducasse 5 star restaurant.
I particularly love the unique art-nouveau canopy shading the main entrance door
which opens onto Avenue Montaigne - home to the ~crѐme de la crѐme~ of Parisian haute-couture
Christian Dior - Chanel - Gucci - Nina Ricci
and if you're into shoes - Jimmy Choo
selling everything from black leather sequined pumps to beige studded suede boots.
I love to walk this street- and I adore window shopping
but the most I have bought are perfumes from Christian Dior
That made my heart sing!
It's lovely to snatch these glimpses into the windows of the world's elite
but at the end of the day I'm more than happy to climb the narrow rickety stairs
to the left bank studio - crumbled quiche and citron tarte in hand.
Je suis trés contente!
