Hint: a croissant or two just isn't going to cut it. Not when you could a) book in for one of the French-themed feasts some of Sydney's best restaurants are hosting (more on that here) and b) indulge in a spot of so Frenchy, so chic shopping at one of the city's most loved international label haunts.

Paddington's Parlour X is getting into the spirit with Parisian-esque window displays care of fashion illustrator Aaron Favarolo. Once you step inside, they'll be offering complimentary café au lait and specially created macarons by award-winning patisserie MakMak.

Shopping for new season Celine and Isabel Marant while you nibble at a macaron and sip un petit café? How very French. 

Parlour X is doing Bastille Day in true French style
