One of the many things I love about Paris, besides the shopping, is the fashion and style of the city from the architecture to the culture to the people and their personal fashion sense. I love sitting at the cafes, people watching and sipping coffee for hours!(sigh) I even wanted to retire in Paris so I began writing a blog called I'd Rather be in Paris - journaling my 5 yr plan to move to the city of lights (although sadly I came to the conclusion that the cost of living is much to high for my pocketbook and the red tape too complicated), I have continued to blog about my love for the city. I have since decided to focus on retirement in a more affordable city.

If you are a true lover of fashion and all things Paris, you might also have an admiration for
Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel the French fashion designer and founder of the Chanel brand.
Did you know that designer Karl Lagerfeld made a movie about Coco Chanel last year?
