The display in the window was nice but mainly wedding dresses, bit early for that. The shop's owner was having a snack behind the counter and excused herself we didn't mind as we wanted to browse. Prices were high so papa wanted to leave, but suddenly I had seen what I wanted so I said: "I want that one".
Papa asked in French about the price and it was way too high, the lady responded in perfect English and I asked if I could try it on
I loved it! I really loved it and it suited me too. Some negotiating was done and we managed to get a fair price. With the money from my grandparents and parents I was now the proud owner of a Parisian formal dress. We had to come back at six for a fitting and so we had a few hours to kill. We decided to go back to the Sacre Coeur and Montmartre. As it happened mass was being held at 3 in the Basilica and it was magical with the singing of the congregation. Afterwards we wondered Montmartre but I had only the dress on my mind. At six we went back to the store and fitted the dress and I was happy the tailor had done a really good job in only 4 hours. We took it home and started to pack. I am excited for London but have to say that Paris is my favourite big city so far.
