This Sums It Up, Really...

This photo is very representative of the weather in Paris all weekend. Perfect excuse to seek refuge to department stores and museums. I still need to take photos of some purchases so the promised post of my retail-haul will follow.

Culture-wise, we went to Musée d'Orsay (an excercise in patience and endurance both to get into the museum and to warm up in the café...) to see the really good Impressionism and Fashion exhibition. On Sunday, we decided we had enough of queuing in the rain and went to less mainstream museums, such as the Musée de la Vie Romantique and the Musée de l'Armée, which was actually very good with really beautifully decorated armour and an interesting display of the World Wars from the French perspective.

Home of the Musée de la Vie Romantique:

We were not spared queues on Sunday, either as we went to Ladurée for lunch (sort of) and we had plenty of time to peruse the Lanvin "collection" in the window until we were admitted into the holiest of holies and could devour our truly orgasmic desserts.
