I have been bad, really bad. My poor DH ... what he doesn't know won't hurt him, right? ;)

So I started at Harrod's. Bought a Mono Speedy 25 as they had very limited selection there. Then moved on to the LV store on Sloane St., got an Orange Onatah PM. Mind you, I have these 2 items sitting at home back in the States, brand new from elux. The prices are much cheaper here in Europe, even with the high exchange rate. I ended up liking the Orange Onatah in person - I thought it'd be weird but it turned out to be a really cute shade of orange, stands out, and more a Spring/Summer color. The design shows more than the Cocoa, just hope it won't color transfer. The Speedy 25 was 'Made in France' whereas the one from elux was 'Made in USA' - I don't have anything against things made at home, just that I want most of my LVs to be made in France, and just collect 1 item from each location (so far I have Italy, France and US).

Anyway, they didn't have the perf. wallet there so I went to the one on New Bond St. I like this one the best, and had shopped there quite a few times before. They had the fuschia perf. wallet. Just as I was signing my CC receipt, I saw the plate on display. Ah ... big mistake. I snatched that one up too! :P

Ladies, I got 4 LV items in one day!!!!!!!!!! I'd gone totally mad! :evil:

I try to tell myself I've saved at least 20% on each item, even with the high exchange rate.

And I plan on spending another day here ... Must go visit museums and galleries instead! :suspiciou

BTW, people here are so stylish here, and it's such a great city to visit. I went to the Tate Modern in the afternoon, although I don't like the building itself I liked checking out the exhibits. I am going to see the Michelangelo Special Exhibit at the British Museum later.

Thanks Kathleen37, KK, and muppy for your points on shopping in London!
