Every true Parisienne has her essential wardrobe items; designer handbag, beautifully printed neck scarf, classic trench coat and last, but by no means least, a drawer full of sassy and sexy lingerie. It would be an understatement to say that lingerie is an important part of the French culture and we are spoilt for choice when it comes to buying lingerie in Paris.  The French appreciation for lace, embroidery and carefully handcrafted garments becomes apparent as soon as you step out into the City of Lights. Lingerie is not to be worn......

The neighborhood’s architecture and feel represent a timeless and old world elegance that has been passed on through years of aristocratic influence. When I walk through the 7th, I am distinctly reminded of Hemingway’s remark that Paris......
