Holiday Inspiration: Christmastime in NY {Bonpoint}

On our trek down Madison Avenue

the other day in Manhattan,

there was no stopping a visit to Bonpoint,

the loveliest Parisian children’s couture shop!

Oh my goodness.

JE LE VEUX. JE LE VEUX TOUS!

I want it. I want it all!

Merci to the lovely chic

French manager who explained

the three day process of cutting out all

the stars from paper to adorn the shop…

a magical garland effect not lost on me

(which incidentally is how it was

possible to get approval for

a few snapshots just for vous).

Honestly, everywhere you turn in Bonpoint

is another lovely direction.

I begged my husband to absorb the details

so we could create such European ambience at home.

“Make sure you memorize the use of grey!!!”

etc. etc.

Dude had to listen to obnoxious whining,

and this was just prior to an hour wait

for macarons at Laduree!

I am in love with this brick and mortar

lovely shop, and you must visit someday.

Feelin Bonpoint? 

Peace to you right where you are.

p.s.
This post DOES make me sound
like a friggin jetsetter.
For today? I’ll take it.

    Oh yeah, it's beautiful. Love the use of the grays, and the casual, 'not trying too hard', pure elegance…

    Oh Fabulous! I would probably throw tantrums if I am told to come out of there. It's simply gorgeous. Think they would let us live there?
