This fall season, everyone is raving about the hottest makeup looks and fashion trends that are pouring in during Fashion Week. But we all love a little relaxation time to unwind and even do a little shopping. Getting away from the daily hustle and bustle of things is what we all dream of and Runway has a little advice on how to take that dream vacation and turn it into reality.
If you’re a fashionista, a couture queen, or just a loyal shopper and advent fashion show follower, this dream getaway could be your ultimate French fairytale come true. If you’re going to be staying in Paris, I suggest, for pure elegance, service, and experience, The Hotel Le Bristol. This beautiful, five-star, award-winning hotel in Paris is number one. The hotel hosts rooms and suites, some with Eiffel tower views, as well as lavish courtyard and gardens.
Because of its impeccable location, this posh hotel, built in 1925, carries an 18th century Parisian feel throughout and has some truly amazing eateries and amenities. The Hotel Le Bristol was also chosen as the 2014 Traveler’s Choice winner for best hotel. And if you love fashion, you’ll be delighted that Hotel Le Bristol is located just minutes from the elegant Rue Du Faubourg. This famous street in Paris is home to fashion. The popular Parisian street also features cafés, restaurants, and shopping
Just east, you’ll find the Rue Du Faubourg Saint Honore extension. Some stores we love here include; Chanel, Rue Cambon Paris (The house of Coco Chanel), Christian Louboutin, Eclairerur (multi-brand store), Dolce & Gabbana, Gianni Versace, Gucci, Prada and much, much more. Don’t leave without visiting this street, located in the arts and fashion district
If you’re a fashion guru, you’ve probably flown in for Paris Fashion Week. PFW is presented in multiple locations, and has been running this week and ending today. Get a glimpse of some of the hottest looks from the Spring/Summer 2015 Ready to Wear Collections. See what the designers have created this year while snagging some hot new ideas.
If you’re looking for fabulous French cuisine or a cocktail, check out The Bar at Le Bristol. This Parisian bar is easily one of the trendiest bars in Paris. Located downstairs, inside of the hotel, its 18th century charm is sure to delight your senses while one of their famous signature cocktail tingles your taste buds, as you enjoy the beautiful views.
For dining, I suggest some of the hotels best restaurants. Head Chef Eric Frechon is the magic behind multiple restaurants here at Le Bristol. Epicure French restaurant presents its guests with great traditional French cuisine in a fresh, innovative way. It is a great place for lunch and dinner.
If you’re looking for a more upscale experience, check out the fabulous 114 Faubourg. This restaurant has a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The cuisine here is a favorite among both tourists and locals. Along the Rue Du Faubourg, you’ll find more art, history, and fashion than in most cities, and when taking a trip to the city of light and fashion, don’t forget to stop by some of the most famous spots in Paris.
Soak up the Eiffel tower, or even take a stroll to the Love Lock Bridge, which can be found around various locations in Paris as well. Many have tried to shut these bridges down, but they continue to thrive, holding more locks each year. Don’t leave without taking home some special memories, tons of photos, and maybe a little romance? Paris is the vacation of your dreams if you’re looking for beauty, romance, passion, and of course, the best in fashion.
