"Fashion" shopping advice

Jump to last reply

This is my first post, so I hope this question isn't too trivial. I will have Monday and Tuesday on my own in Paris next week and need to prepare for cold and rain (i.e. not walk all day). I thought I might (finally) look at some interesting Paris fashions (women's). I don't have the money to buy, but I'd love to go in some small boutiques where they have well constructed, innovative and creative designs. However, I admit that I am intimidated going in someplace alone where I know I won't be buying anything. With a girlfriend, I can "browse" all day, perhaps it's easier to ignore "attitude" then.
Does anyone have suggestions of shops where I might go? Are there "dos and don't's" for browsing? Are there better resale shops (might be less intimidating)? And finally, is there such a thing as a tour of a couture house or someplace where I could actually look at the marvelous construction of these clothes?
