Paris Loves Tourists!

Parisians may grumble about them, but then tourists grumble about Parisians, so it’s only fair! 😉 But I’ll let you in on a little secret… Paris loves its tourists! Really??? you ask? Well, it’s only because they bring an enourmous amount of business to a country that is leaning more and more towards a services industry. Besides luxury, tourism is… Read more →

Summertime Soirée on the Faubourg Saint Honoré

Scott Sallée attended the Summertime soirée for us and offered to share his experience with Prête-Moi Paris! Summertime on rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré is in its third edition, and following the themes of peonies and jazz in 2012 and red roses and tango in 2013, we were invited to discover New York circa 1950-1960, with vintage cars, Mad Men,… Read more →

Sinfonietta Cocktails and Conversations Soirée

I am finally getting to posting about this fantastic event that I attened at the end of April. It’s one of those types of events that you jump at the chance to attend because these social and cultural gatherings can be so unlike the trypical Parisian soirée. It is aparantly very anglo-saxon to gather and be social after a concert… Read more →

Dreamed of a trip to Paris for years? So… It’s finally happening… Yaaaaaaay! Now what do you do first? Moi, I would make a list of all the things I wanted to do, plan all my outfits, probably create an elaborate Pinterest board, and then search for hotels. That’s part of the fun of planning a trip. What isn’t as… Read more →

Dries Van Noten Retrospective

The Musée des Arts Décoratifs often has fashion exhibits that are of the utmost quality. I have seen a few there, and most recently the Dries Van Noten Inspirations retrospective of his fashion design career so far. If you do attend this exhibit, may I suggest reading Dana Thomas’ portrait of the Belgian deisgner, in the Wall Street Journal first… Read more →

Les Jeudis Arty

A new non-profit organisation Parisian event is in the works. It is fun, trendy and culturally speaking it’s terribly chic but remains accessible to even a total non-art snob such as myself. I know little about art. I took a few art and architecture classes when I first arrived in Paris, but beyond a few classics and some of the… Read more →

Little Paris Tips

I have a few fun updates about some things I love in Paris : I posted about this bubbly brand back in 2012, but did you know that Mon Champagne now delivers, in Paris, in less than three hours?!? I mean we all know how bad a champagne emergency is, right?!?!? LOL! Okay, all kidding aside, who wants to lug… Read more →
