Our tour with the Tiltons has begun and it's off to a great start! We are a compact group of 13. These pics cover only the first couple days of the Tilton tour. We enjoyed some of these adventures before the tour began.
Jeanne, of 365 Dresses (and on Instagram), lives part of the year in Paris. She invited Margy and I to stop by one evening for wine and cheese. The next day she joined us for some shopping on the Left Bank and she also gave us a little tour of the famous Bon Marché department store.
Thanks so much, Jeanne, for giving Margy and I a glimpse of some of your favorite shops on the Left Bank!
Though I love Arche footwear, I really wasn't looking to buy more boots when we walked into the Arche store on La Rue Dragon (one of 5 Arche locations in Paris).
But Jeanne pointed out some amazing teal and green boots and I was "in crisis!"
They didn't have my size in stock (41), but they could get them from another store by tomorrow morning
That meant I would have time to pick them up before our rendezvous with the Tiltons!
The folks at the Rue du Dragon store were wonderful! Their English is good. Too good as it was too easy to spend money!
After a long day of exploring the Marais, Margy and I walked home via the Seine and Notre Dame cathedral.
We visited the Musée D'Orsay at night to see the amazing impressionist exhibit.
I continue to seek out interesting garments in window displays.
