Paris--Day 1: Window Shopping

What didn't we see as walked around today? In no particular order, we gazed at Gothic gargoyles, holographic portraits,a beautiful pot--I'm not sure of the era-- and a saucy window display in the Taschen book shop to promote their new Big Book of Legs. A shop that sold manuscripts and autographs had "signed" the back of the model in the window. 

Along beside the Seine, you could stare at a custom-made wedding dress called "Las Vegas" on account of its glitzy trim: yours for only 7500 euros. In the Marais, I lucked into a terrific vintage clothing store and am wearing the five-euro skirt I snapped up as we speak. Long, Indian print, what else.
