Nice is Nice

Nice is a big city and in the past few years it has continued to improve, especially in the shopping department. Here are some of my favorite places to shop and eat .

majeRue Alphonse Karr is filled with great boutiques. My FAVORITE is Maje, it’s French dressing at it’s best. This is always my first stop upon arrival.

sandroSandro is very similar to Maje (same company), another great stop on Alphonse Karr.

desertDesert (I think the name has now been changed to Poles) has a great selection of Isabel Marant. This is where I’ve found some coveted pieces (ie the Bekket sneaker).

Other noteworthy store: If you’re looking for unique eyewear Marc le Bihan on Rue Alphonse Karr carries a great selection of eyeglasses and sunglasses.

louisOk, moving on to some high end shopping on rue de Paradis off Zones Pietonnes. This street has Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Sonia Rykiel, Armani, and some other great boutiques.
