Around holiday time, the shop windows were festively adorned, tempting even the most weary-eyed traveller to enter and behold all the exquisite treasurers within.  We peered into the Hermès flagship, marveled at an all white carousal at Place de Vendome, savored every sweet bite at Laduree, and strolled by the most perfect little floral shop.
