Today I wanted to write in more detail about my wonderful long weekend in Paris and post some more photos.
My photo’s seem to fall into categories.
Shops and cafes:
Apartment buildings and balconies:
On my first day in Paris I went to see the Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton Exhibition at les Arts decoratifs. I had gone to the museum see their collection of Art Deco furniture and jewellery so, when I happened upon this fashion exhibition it was a bonus. It was such an interesting exhibition and so beautifully presented.
The second day I spent the morning exploring the canal saint-martin area. It is a very picturesque area with trendy little shops and cafes.
I want to be the lady with the stylish hat. What a nice way to spend a day!
In the afternoon I went to the Musee Gustave Moreau. This is such a quirky and charming museum. It was the home and studio of the Symbolist painter Gustave Moreau.
On my last day I went to the Musee d’Orsay which was amazing, as you would expect, but a little overwhelming in size.
