|La Cure Gourmande in Passage Saint-Emilion is the most adorable candy shop in Paris. It looks like it was designed and decorated by elves!|
One of my very favorite places to window shop is in Paris. The French are masters at merchandising their windows – creating captivating vignettes that can exude charm or glamour as easily they can peak curiosity or evoke marvel.
From time to time, I’ll share snapshots ‘Thru the looking glass.’ Today, let’s start in Paris with Laduree (above, left). There, the shop windows are full of delicious macaroons and tempting chocolates, but the windows that really stop traffic (center and right) are those of Chocolatier Fouquet just off of Avenue Montaigne where skirts, bustiers and shoes are all made of chocolate and line the storefront.

Using the historic fabric of their building façades, the shopkeepers exploit the architecturally historic exteriors to create enchanting storefronts – a place where shoppers thrill to what is offered 'Thru the looking glass.'
