Welcome to the interior of the Galleries Lafayette, the most luxurious department store in Paris. This 7 story dome rivals Harrods in London or Saks in Manhattan for sheer luxury as well as hip, young brands and gorgeous, cosmetic counters.
I definitely managed to do some damage to my wallet and walked away with at least 4 LBD's, but this was by far, my favorite piece. A black, silk satin, tutu number with crinoline on the bottom, designed by a young, up and coming graduate of the St Martins School of Design who purchased the rights to the Brigitte Bardot name. Hence the line, Brigitte Bardot. The sales girl who helped me asked if I would mind her shooting me in the dress. I was more than happy to comply.
Soon reality took hold, and my lighter feeling wallet forced me out the door and on to other exploits. But I had a grand time gallivanting around the displays and taking in all the fabulous, fall fashion.
