Day two started off well and by well I mean a trip to Colette. I’m obsessed with Colette – if you don’t know, it’s this super cool, super cult, very street little boutique on Rue Saint-Honore. Then we went to lunch at Hotel Costes. So, I have a problem with this place. It’s super exclusive and the interior is insanely Versailles and we ate lunch on the terrace. My issue is that it’s one of those places were everyone looks at you as you walk in…and then they keep watching you as you eat, judging your outfit choice and probably the fact that you’re eating carbs. So although the waitresses obviously didn’t want to be there and that the people next to me had studied every stitch on my sneakers, the food was pretty good.
I had the spicy lobster spaghetti with some pretty special mashed potatoes to rival Monsieur Bleu. Anyway, after that experience we shopped some more in the drizzle, weaving in and out of the Saint Honore shops and ending up in Galeries Lafayette.

For dinner we went to Chez Andre which we visited last time – it’s one of those cute authentic Parisian restaurants and I was craving escargots so it was a win. The food was good, not much else to mention apart from the table of American middle aged woman sat nearby discussing how pole dancing has helped them discover their “inner goddess” and how one of them fears her son thinks she’s a whore, to which another replied “he needs to stop seeing you just as a maternal vessel”. It was odd, but pretty good entertainment if I do say so myself.
