Looking at Streetsfn's Paris Fashion Week photos is making me even more excited for my last minute trip to Paris on Wednesday (I bought my tickets three days ago!!) If any of you have suggestions for me of places I absolutely should not miss out on while there PLEASE please let me know!! I'm going to be renting an apartment with my amazing friend Aly in Montmarte for a week. I've never been to Paris and would love to your advice!

There's this store in Le Marais called Noir Kennedy which I absolutely adore - leather shorts, band shirts, coffins and bloody butterflies on the wall etc. They have 3 shops but I believe you can find the addresses online.

le marais section ( where Galliano had his incident) has the best vintage shops and a side cafe claiming to sell "the best falafals in the world"..I think its true

Cafe ruc on rue honore (where all the great shops are including colette) and added bonus all their waiters look like models

Chez le Fondue @ Montmartre--- small family restaurant where everyone who studies abroad seems to have fbook documentation of their visit here(im guilty as well), it might have something to do with the wine in baby bottles

angelina's bien sur! and also the gardens of the palais royal. the galleries have the cutest stores including serge lutens an excellent perfume maker.
not too far from there is dehillerin who sells cooking supplies. walking into the store feels like walking into a play. its so old fashioned!

oh and the bon marche!

just eat all the wonderful food and bread and cheese. oh i nearly forgot! go to fauchon for some macaroons :)

I'm actually living in Montmartre :) Maybe I'll get the chance to see around the corner, sitting in a café in the sun :)
The weather is currently wonderfull, a bit cold but very sunny :)

What you SHOULD see or do in Paris : visiting one of the following parcs : Luxembourg or Tuileries, go to at least one museum (the Louvres is next to the Tuileries, and Angelina, the 'tea time' place as well', shop in the Marais or in Montmartre (run far away from St-Lazare and Blvd Hausmann), sit on the Sacré Coeur's green grasses wearing a pair of shades and so on... And PLEASE : you HAVE to taste the 2010 best baguette from Paris : it's rue des abesses, and the bread is AMAZING !!

Enjoy your time in Paris Molly :)

You MUST go to a marché aux puces (de Saint Ouen or de Vanves). It is the best place to find one of a kind souvenirs (clothes, jewelry, old postcards, household goods- you name it!)

my only advice:

shop at vintage shops MAKE SURE
people watch (most stylish people ever)
barely sleep there's too much beauty around you to see!

Meh, Paris is Paris. Just remember that you're CANADIAN right, not American, Canadian. You'll probably be fine with Australian too.

Ahh you're def staying in the right area! It would take me ages to copy over the best places to shop, so heres a link to my favourites http://thedreamylittlepictureshow.blogspot.com/2010/04/brief-guide-to-paris-unknown.html

best piece of advice though would be - just explore - there are hidden gems everywhere!
