|Jane at the Palais Royale in Paris, January 2010|
Jane and I are Paris-bound at the end of the month, on the hunt for the prettiest panties! Our trip will encompass the Salon International de la Lingerie, a huge international lingerie market where we discover unique new designers for the shop as well as place orders with favorites including Fleur of England, Stephanie, Andres Sarda, Marjolaine, and Annete Gortz. This is a huge event, with thousands of brands exhibiting for buyers and media from around the globe! We will return with our ordering for next winter completed, all abuzz with the styles & colors that will be coming into the shop.
|Fifi Chachnil's Shop in Paris|
We will also dash about town for personal appointments with several lovely lines at their own showrooms. Fifi Chachnil has a particularly darling showroom in the back of her dollhouse of a shop, located in the cobblestone courtyard of a beautiful building.
|Le Train Bleu, Paris, January 2010|
We will also squeeze in some sightseeing while we are away, hitting churches, museums & shops between appointments, and making sure to leave time to have a glass of champagne now and again... It is Paris, after all! The photo above is from a Champagne stop at Le Train Bleu in the Metro from last January.
|Eiffel Tower, January 2010|
Never fear, we will have lovely ladies manning the shop while we are away, and will take this time to have some much-needed cleaning and repairs done. Shop hours for January 21st-30th are listed below (regular shop hours will resume on the 31st - just in time for Valentines day!):
