Bonjour! Back from Paris with My Haul :)

  1. Arrived back a week ago. Paris was FANTASTIC. The sights, the people and the shopping was beautiful. The Parisians looked so classy and refined, were polite and helpful and most spoke English (contrary to what I perceived). Weather was great, cool and perfect.

    As for LV, I had mixed feelings shopping there. The boutique sizes were somewhat small except for the main store. But I wasnt blown away by the main store either. Didnt see much special or limited items. In fact, my local store had more LEs than they had. The prob is that items sells so fast that you will hardly find anything. The only LEs I saw were Patchwork Pochette, Men's Carpet FW06 bag, Tobago Keepall/Carryall, China bag (GM), Cloud bags and that was it. The other LEs like Soana, Patchwork, Mirage, Limelight, Perforated, Groom (except rond), Tobago Shoebag were all sold out and none were in sight. I was somewhat dissapointed. I thought they would have tons of hard to find items there.

    In fact, they made buying the Mirage and Mono Bequias difficult for me. They are selective in selling the seasonal items to walk ins and they play mind games with you, i.e. even if they have one on display and say they have one for sale, after passing them your passport, they might refuse selling it to you by coming up with excuses not to sell you. More on that later.

    I took tons of pics and here are some of them. Enjoy. :smile:
