Paris is the land of shoes. There is a shoe store at every second corner. I am obsessed with shoes and usually I have to buy shoes wherever I go. In Paris there is sooooo much choice though, that I just can’t decide which ones to buy that I would really wear at home. So I will probably end up not buying anything (which is totally fine looking at the amount of shoes waiting for me in my shoe cabinet).

What fascinates me the most here is all the girls wearing high heels. I usully have a hard time wearing them myself, so I am even more impressed by the women who wear them in a busy city like Paris.

Here some shoe highlights. Obviously whenever the really colourful and crazy ones came walking by I never had my camera at hand.

Our apartment is in the 11th Arrondisement (Bastille) on Rue Keller. It is a very hip and popular area, and you can find lots of young people.  Besides all the Manga stores in our street there are a lot of little jewellery and fashion labels that are worth looking into. Some of them I want to introduce in this post.

The one closest to our apartment is a crazy little jewellery store with lots of colourful pieces. Last saturday they had a little get together to introduce their new collection. I like some of their bracelets a lot. Although neon colours are usually not so much my choice, I find their way of integrating it into their selection very much. I might go back and get a little something.

Another wonderful jewellery store for the more daily life usage. Really cute little stuff some more playful and others very streigth and clean. I very much like the earings and bracelet made out of lace and little pearls. It’s really cute!

The earrings would be my choice. I might go back....

Des petits hauts

5 rue Keller / Paris 11ème

This shop promotes a nice brand that has very charming romantic yet sporty design. A lot of their T-Shirts and Jumpers have little prints on them, but not in a big loud way, more with little surprise moments: little stars on a pocket or golden dots as a choice of pattern. Unfortunatly my budget on this trip is limited, else I probably would have bought something.
Unfortunaly the shop was not full at all on a Saturday afternoon. Everything seemed very clean an ordered and sometimes I was afraid to go through the clothes and mess up the perfectly lined up hangers. I personally prefer shops that have less of a showroom atmosphere. But I liked the clothes.
