About the Author
In 2003, American-in-Paris Rebecca Magniant founded Chic Shopping Paris (www.chicshoppingparis.com), a service that offers personal tours of the city's best shops, conducted by bilingual guides. She has written for The Guardian and France Today and has appeared on the Travel Channel, ESPN, and Rai Uno. Alison Harris has worked throughout the world shooting photos for travel books, cookbooks, advertising campaigns, book covers, and magazine stories. Her latest books, Markets of Paris, The Patisseries of Paris, Chic Shopping Paris, and Food Wine The Italian Riviera & Genoa are published by The Little Bookroom.
"Well designed, lavishly illustrated, and conveniently pocket-size, "Chic Shopping Paris" skips the heavy hitters of the Avenue Montaigne in favor of following in the footsteps of real Parisian shoppers, who mix L'Eclaireur and Louboutin with Le Comptoir des Cotonniers and insider addresses like Dante & Maria, Philippe Roucou, and Louison--and she throws in a host of addresses for finding very French cadeaux, perfumes and objects for the home." --Style.com
""Chic Shopping Paris" will guide you to some of the best stores in the City of Light. Don't expect to read only about department stores; there are lots of boutiques here. If you don't have a personal shopper, the book serves as a good substitute. And it's small enough to stash in your purse." --BonjourParis
"These cute little square books published on sturdy paper with rounded corners will fit effortlessly into your designer handbags. This is a book that will withstand numerous shopping excursions...Author Rebecca Perry Magniant is the quintessential 'American in Paris.' Married to a Parisian, she has made it her business to ferret out the boutiques of the well-heeled and the well-coiffed. Rather than guard these addresses as a 'top secret survival kit' for living in Paris, Magniant has put her legwork to good use...So, now it's time to slip on your comfortable Prada sandals for a trek through the various neighborhoods for a 'look-see' at "Chic Shopping's" preferred shops..."Chic Shopping Paris" will prove a useful jump-off point for serious shoppers. The addresses listed here will get you headed to the right neighborhoods and out of the tourist trap alleys i.e. Rue de Rivoli and Champs Elysees. It's especially useful if you're looking for specialty item such as gloves or handcrafted watchband straps, just to give two examples." --Parislogue
Praise for Rebecca Magniant:
"Sign up with Chic Shopping Paris to smoothly navigate the city's shopping scene." --"Fodors.com"
