Originally, Galerie Vero-Dodat was le passage that connected Paris' markets (Les Halles) with the Palais Royal. It must have been gorgeous in its heyday....gorgeously lit by bulbous lamps....an exclusive haven for those who could afford it.
Today, Galerie Vero-Dodat is a little dilapidated, with peeling paint on many of the shop fronts....but it's still very interesting, atmospheric and trés elegant.
It's close to the Banque de France and Bourse quartier (ie the financial district of Paris)....and is home to antique, contemporary art, gorgeous furniture, music shops....and Christian Louboutin. It's serious window shopping territory....enjoy!

|A little dilapidated....but still very beautiful.|
|Le passage is trés chic....brass panelled shop fronts, rusted pillars,|
speckled mirrors and bulbous lamps.
|I don't believe this shoe!|
Maybe you just look at it....'cos I certainly couldn't walk in it.
|Ooohh la la la la! Good ol' leopard...never goes out of fashion, does it?|
|This is the quaint bootmaker inside le passage.....and should you require|
your Louboutins to be resoled....they'll do them....red soles naturellement!
|An early morning delivery of blue velvet....so Parisian n'est-ce pas?|
Next week, however, we're off to Seville for a few days in search of the sun! A bientot.
