Our LoveShackFancy Guide to Paris
Guide to Paris
Always exhilarated to be in Paris, from behind the scenes of our Fall campaign to walking for miles and miles (our favorite Parisian activity), afternoons in the park, endless shopping, and carousel rides with cuties, we love this city so. While we’re always discovering new corners of the French capital—from more well-known places to those a little more off the beaten path *so to speak* follow our Parisian routine as we discover enchanting new places and rediscover old favorites for where to stay, eat, and play. Here is our LoveShackFancy guide to the City Of Love.
And, as always, it's a family affair!
The iconic Paris hotel and our home away from home. Set in the heart of the city, this hotel embodies everything girly we love. Mornings are spent eating baskets of croissants and jumping on beds, while afternoons are for putting on the Ritz and playing dress-up in our latest collection.
