Beck’s Guide To Paris

Beck’s Guide To Paris

A Mother Daughter Work Trip

In Paris we wear black. Yes it’s true! Recently, our creative director and founder Rebecca and her mom went to Paris during Couture Fashion Week. Together they went for showroom appointments, meetings with stylists for our upcoming NYC Fashion Week presentation and party, an interview with the French TV station about the brand and sourcing and of course to do what they do best, shop for vintage! Never short of an adventure, below are their most loved places to eat, stay, and be inspired, plus what she wore for Parisian days and by endless night’s out because getting dressed for every activity is half the fun!

 So, if you find yourself in Paris, you’ll likely want to check out these places. Pack a floral bag and get ready.

Where to Stay

The Ritz

Centrally located and ideal for easily getting around the city, this is one of Rebecca’s favorite places to stay. It’s so special and after years of staying there, it’s become a tradition to have breakfast in the breakfast room straight off the plane.

Where to Shop Vintage 

Les Puces Flea Market 

Rebecca and her mom have been treasure hunting her entire life. Naturally going to the flea market in Paris is a must. Filled with china, furniture and vintage dresses, the inspiration is endless. Much of our LoveShackFancy store furniture and design details are sourced from this flea market. 

Vintage Lace Shop in Le Marais 

And every trip to the city of love includes a stop at the lace shop in Le Marais. This time Rebecca and her mom were accompanied by French TV documenting their day of sourcing.

Where To Eat Dinner

Le Petit Saint Benoit

An iconic French Bistro ideal for having lunch with your mom or a friend when shopping in the 6th arrondissement. 

Bar Vendome

For a quick working lunch, the restaurant at the Ritz. 

Where To Eat Dinner

Hotel Costes

This iconic dinner spot is all things Parisian. Located in the courtyard of the Hotel Costes, it’s filled with chic Parisians, fashion types, cigarettes, and french fries. It’s a must on every trip, though it's super popular; chances are you may run into another New Yorker! 

Lou Lou's

Located inside the Louvre museum this Parisian gem boasts Italian food, amazing people watching and great music. 

Caviar Kaspia

No trip to Paris is complete with a night at Caviar Kaspia. Trust. 

Drinks at Bar Hemingway 

For an after dinner night cap head to The Hemingway Bar in the back of the Ritz Hotel. They serve martinis with roses in them… need we say more?

Where To Go Dancing

Crazy Horse

Originally opposite couture houses YSL and Givenchy and next door to Balenciaga, this Parisian institution has been around since the 50s. With legendary performances by the likes of Madonna and Dita and more, Crazy Horse is a total must-see, especially if on a girl’s trip.


This iconic nightclub is having a major moment again. Be prepared to dance, and sing. Wear sequins!
