Shopping Abroad: French Ecommerce Store L’Exception

French girl charm. Literally.

L’Exception is worth a visit if you’re visiting Paris. One of the few shops we always try to visit. The design and layout is more like a premiere shopping experience, but the prices are approachable and a great place to grab gifts for friends.


The whimsical side of French fashion is in full force at L’Exception which mixes 325€ Nicholas Theil condom pendent necklaces with Dajczman leather bracelets (available in beautiful autumnal hues) for 190€.


We love how sculptural these heart studs are by Miss Bibi (150€)  and the shop has probably the largest selection of jewelry headbands for (perfect for weddings) we’ve ever seen.


So how does shipping work? They use DHL – which based on our experience has been pretty reliable. The one catch (which wasn’t a problem when we ordered) is that they only make two delivery attempts. So probably best to ship to an office if you can.

ps. we love their Instagram, where their stylish staff and regular customers show off outfits.
