A true Parisienne... would not be seen on the Champs Elysées - unless desperate times call for desperate measures. However, even if they have to walk somewhere on the Champs Elysées, they'll take the street parallel to it.
A true Parisienne... wouldn't be caught dead wearing sneakers outside of the gym. And if they're about to die, it wouldn't surprise me to hear them ask for another pair of shoes. They bring stilettos to wear on the way home.
A true Parisienne... doesn't check anyone out on the street. It doesn't matter if you're carrying the hula hoop Chanel purse right off the '13 runway.
A true Parisienne... is not bothered by smoke. Even if they don't smoke. (And it's highly unlikely for them not to smoke.)
A true Parisienne... wouldn't be shopping at Ladurée for desert.
A true Parisienne... wouldn't be seen out before 12:00pm on a Sunday. You think they spend Saturday nights in their apartments with a book and go to bed at 10pm?
A true Parisienne... would most likely not stop to help you out with directions. Warning: if they do, they're sending you to the opposite direction just for kicks. My teacher Thierry says you need to verify with at least three people before going in the direction you're told.
A true Parisienne... rarely takes a cab. They're either riding the metro, or they have drivers who do the driving for them.
A true Parisienne... wears designer clothing as if it's H&M.
A true Parisienne... wouldn't visit the museums on the weekends. I've told you that their motto is to avoid tourists at all costs.
