L I T T L E    B L A C K    W I S H L I S T

In case you missed my previous update, we were able to rearrange our plans, and although it cost a pretty penny, I know it will be worth it - because, I mean - it's Paris! So, let your lists of favorite cafes, shops and walks floweth! 

I am so thrilled!!!

As you can imagine, the same few items of clothing I've been wearing since February are a bit worn out. All of my shoes have gotten a terrible beating and I haven't anything that one could still deem as pretty (although maybe some things once were). Each of my jeans - both black and blue, have holes in rather impolite areas. I hate the thought of going to France with holes in my pants. Thank goodness I have great parents who are shipping me some new ones from home! I just hope they get to me here in Ireland in time. 

Anyway, this is just for fun. I just think it would feel so nice to have a few perfectly simple black items to class everything up a bit. Of course there's absolutely no way I could purchase any one of these at this point in my travels... My bank account is looking, well. Scary.

2. Martin Margiela Line 11, Mirror Bag - one of those things I'm going to want forever.
4. Golden Goose, Standard Denim - these just may be my dream jeans.


  1. Flea markets dude.



    You get off at the metro stop "Porte de Clignancourt" and walk north through the African Market (which is not that great) unti you get to Rue de Rosiers. Poke around and you'll find the markets.

  2. Aly- per the comment above: that is where we went when you visited me! 

    Ps: I sure hope those jeans were woven with Rapunzels hair, otherwise that price tag is BONKERS. 

  3. Ohh! I will go back and I will imagine you are there with me. When I think of Paris, I think of you. I REALLY wish you could come, too. I miss you so much.

    And yes, the price on those jeans is stupid expensive. It's just silly.

  4. I have been there before but I never would have known how to get back. Thanks man!

    So excited to see you & Michelle when I get home!!

  5. Get your hands on "Before Sunset" sometime soon, and watch that. Then, when you get to Paris: 

    Musee Rodin
    Shakespeare and Company

    Anywhere near Parmentier or Oberkampf (Pure Cafe, which is in "Before Sunset"), Le Pop In, also Pierre Herme for macarons (everyone has their opinions on these, but Pierre Herme does really interest flavors, plus there's a shop near Eglise Saint Sulpice, which means macarons + people watching. GO!)

  6. I've just discovered your blog and i must say it's lovely. Beautiful pictures :) 
    I live in Paris and i'll be happy to help if you have any request.
    Enjoy your stay!
