I'm an American, but I live in Moscow. A fact that I'm not overly thrilled about. But, there is one upside to living in Moscow. If you've got the cash, you can have anything you want. You like LV? Great, walk into the shop and grab whatever you like...Miroir, they have pleanty...waitlist??? what waitlist, you want it, you've got it! Leopard LVs, which one were you looking for? We've got that too. The same goes for Balenciaga, Hermes and probably any other brand as well. Girls here dress up, and they love name brands, but the idea of limited editions and "it" bags has not hit the population yet, so girls go into a shop and pick just based on what they like. There is no such thing as knowing what's coming, getting on waitlists, getting the new bag. Oh well, better for me!
