a quick "bonjour" from Paris

  1. Bonjour all from paris where I am spending a few days on holidays, and I just wanted to report my LV shopping trip.
    A lot of real LV spotting , many many many mono speedys on young posh girls and also more mature women, also some pearl vernis and damier speedy and MC Aurelia.
    I went to LV Galeries Lafayette first to look for Stephane, unfortunately he wasn't there -quite unlucky- The shop was sooo busy, it's crazy. mainly asian and arabian tourists. I was very satisfied with the service as I asked them to replace a strap with a deffect, and since the bag was purchased several months before and worn (2 times) they had to call the manager, who was very professional and replaced it.
    2 chinese girls also wanted to photograph me, they said "you're a beautiful girl" awww thanks, maybe I was the typical French girl I don't know !! lol -had to go outside the shop to do that, having in mind the Parisian campaign : "Parisians be nice with tourists" so...-
    Then I went to Saint Germain to get a more peaceful buying experience, as only regular customers know that shop. So I tried on damier speedy and papillon 30, and bought the papillon !!! I asked to see 2 to check carefully for deffects, the SA said they are handmade, so prone to imperfections, but I got a box, the brochures (shoes for men and women, azur, and fall, scans will follow !!) and of course I insisted for them to tell their management about the non existant, horrendous service in Denmark. The 4 SAs and manager I talked to were absolutely lovely.
    Also one of the LV factories, in Asnieres, outskirts of Paris, is open for public to visit so you, true LV fans, should go there !!
    That's it, I will take photos when back home, have nice holidays gals !!
