Shopping in Paris

There are national sales in France twice a year. All the stores participate in these sales and if you are diligent, you can find super bargains. Normally, I wait until the very end, the troisième réduction but this year I have been spending money like I actually have some (which I don't). I have been to BHV and Galeries Lafayette way too much recently. To date, I have bought several items of the underwear persuation, too much jewelry, some dresses and some hair product, but not shoes which I desperately need. Seems my feet are way too big to squash into the petit French shoes.

On a funny note...One day I tried on a bra without looking at the price and only after I had taken it off realized it was 275 euros. That's about 350 dollars. I almost had a heart attack, although I must admit, I think it made me a better person. Needless to say, I did not buy it.

For what it's worth, I'll hold your bosoms up for much less than $350.... Kiddin' whitcha kid!

Bras are so expensive, it's crazy. Even in Canada. And it's something all women need, right?!

Had the same "moment" when a few years ago I was trying on bras at the Galeries Lafayettes. Choose a bunch of bras and went to try them. Two fitted great. Ooops, over 100E each!

Didn't buy them... I mean, that's 50E per boob! :D

Thanks BD!
Zhu-Haven't thought about it, but yeah, 50 euros a boob is too much, but much cheaper than plastic surgery!
