Day two in Paris. Joris and I took the metro the the first 'arrondissement'. Next to our apartment was a metro station, I actually found out when watching the film Amélie in Paris that the same metro station is in the film :)!
Understandably, I needed to pose there in a fancy dress. Taking the metro in Paris is very ideal, it takes you everywhere you want and the stops are very close to everything you need to see. Also it's cheap! At least compared to the costs of Dutch public transport. They are very cramped and hot though, sometimes Joris and I couldn't even get in some metro's because of the great amount of tourists and frenchies.
La Droguerie was a very neat store filled with everything you need to be a productive crafty girl. From yarn to buttons to ribbon, beads etc. I especially loved all these little jars filled with flowers:
We strolled past another very beautiful store in which I spend a lot of time ah-ing and ooh-ing:
Especially for these ones...
After boring Joris with all my shopping and hoarding behavior we decided to visit the Louvre before going back to the apartment for dinner.
Of course there was a crazy long line to get in so we skipped the Mona Lisa :( but perhaps someday we'll meet her when going back to Paris.
After dinner we had another stroll through Montmartre, I just couldn't get enough of it!
A lot of stores were open till about 8 pm, so I was lucky enough to have a second shopping spree (poor Joris ;)). I found a really awesome vintage shop near 'Abesses', and sooo cheap!
I feel like I tried on every single piece of clothing there, and ended up leaving with several cute vintage dresses and skirts, yay!
Afterwards we went back to the apartment again and prepared for our third (and last) day in Paris. Hold on tight for part three!
