First stop? Tabio, a Japanese sock store with several Paris outposts.
"They make such good gifts!" says Mankins of the store's sock selection, of which she buys about 10 pairs.
These were some of her favorites.
A wall of peds.
Too many to choose from!
Next, we headed to Selima Optique, home of Mankins' pink glasses.
She likes them so much, she bought them in blue, too! Get yours here for $360.
Trying on some wild and crazy sunglasses.
Our final stop was Tsumori Chisato, a brand that Mankins stocks at Bird. (She attended the designer's Spring 2013 runway show that very morning.) "I love coming here because you can find lots of one-of-a-kind pieces," she says.
"I want this in the dress version!" says Mankins of Chisato's Yeti sweatshirt.
So sparkly and cool.
In the end, Mankins settled on a romper for a friend's baby. Although we have a feeling she might've gone back for that Yeti sweatshirt.
