Pilgrimage to 31 Rue Cambon

  1. Sooo, went to paris last month, and of course broke the bag ban hahah.

    Walked away with a modern chain for my mom, the charms CC holder in silver (for 580 euro!! exorbitant alright but I couldn't resist - they didnt' have the wallet I wanted in black), and medium classic 2.55 caviar silver hardware in black :smile: they had lambskin too but I somehow like caviar better on it : )

    Sadly I forgot to take pictures of the charms holder.. and stupidly I brought the 2.55 with me here so I have to get out of the country (am in Netherlands atm) fast, to get the tax rebate, except that since I'm on a student visa and flying right back in they might not let me get it : P no idea :p anyone has a clue?

    I went to both the one at champ elysses and rue cambon, and I have to say the service was excellent! better at rue cambon, seeing as how I didn't expect to buy anything but walked away with the CC holder and modern chain. The SA there was incredibly friendly, I was in awe walking through all the rooms and she pounced on me and brought me tea and let me try on everything so yeah I'm a sucker for good servie alright :p

    some pictures :smile:

    and oh my I forgot, they had all these exotic flaps and totes.. alligator, crocodile... one croc flap was SO FREAKIN GORGEOUSSS BLUE but it was like 13k euro or so, or was it sgd.. I forgot :p alligators were of cuz insanely exp.

    but gosh, gorgeous, just totally gorgeous

    I wanted to sneak photos, but way too many people watching =(

  3. Lucky you! How fun to go there. The pictures are great, you're so pretty!
     
  4. thanks!! Haha I was sooo excited, and it was great that the SA there was sooo nice, I mean, I never had tea served to me like that before!! and when I switched rooms the serving lady (who was dressed so chic too :p) would follow us.

    it was like a dream come true! :smile: my sister spent the whole time sitting in one of the chairs looking at her guidebooks with her red vinyl 2nd hand backpack looking bored and out of place but the SAs were super attentive to her too so she was abit taken aback that they weren't snobbish :p

  15. man champagne?! hahahah I sure missed out alot!! In asia they don't serve you anything!! =p I need to visit OC next :smile:

    yep I had an awesome time, it was pleasant, especially since everyone always equates the french with snobbiness =p the bag I'm carrying in the photo (can't really see it I suppose :p) was my first balenciaga bag.. which I bought the day before.. only style I liked besides the motorcycle one :p

    I should get my mother to take a photo of my charms credit card holder.. since I couldn't spend that much on the flap bag and couldn't find the black oh so cute wallet, I had to settle on next best thing =) to be honest I was abit like oh my god that's half a bag, but then I got totally suckered in by the service and the whole 'it's limited ed!!!' crap =p they had a coin purse version of it too.
