Galeries Lafayette & Printemps for Xmas 2011

On Saturday we went for a nice walk in Paris, looking around for some boots and other stuff. Thought we'd give les grands magasins a try as well. Apparently, the Christmas decoration is on already and .. this year no exception, it seems popular. At least we can say it by looking at the crowd in front of both. Well I tried taking pictures but I guess on an early Monday or Tuesday afternoon I could do better :) Anyway, here they are. Advent in Paris, numero uno.

lots of Karls

these ladies don't move

most of the windows are Chanel

If you wanna see it for yourself, the department stores are on Boulevard Hausmann, easily reachable by RER A (Auber) and metro: Havre-Caumartin (line 3, 9) Chaussée d'Antin - La Fayette (line 7, 9), but the Saint-Lazare and Opera stations are not far either.
