This is a HUGE topic to cover, as Paris is known as one of the most fashionable cities in the world. And I do not have unlimited finances, soooo….
Shopping in Paris is definitely one of my favorite adventures. When I was 12, I bought my first Gucci at the Galleries Lafayette. I’d saved some money and my Mom gave a bit more. My first purchase was a Gucci clutch, a gift for my Mom for sending me on the trip.
But I digress.
Today, we are talking about the flagship LV store located on the Champs d’Elysees.
It. Is. Magnificient. ( Excuse me while I pause and reminisce)
Ok. I’m back. Buying at the LV store is an event, as well it should be. And they know how to treat a girl special. I confess, I love being pampered, and this experience did not disappoint.
About my day:
I arrived shourtly after the store opened so as to avid the queue that becomes longer as the day goes, and I hate waiting in line. Once I entered, I was paired with an escort who guided me through the store and delievered me to my SA ( Sales Associate), Jean Claude. This store is 4 floors or GORGEOUS. They normally don’t allow photos inside 9 to protect the privacy of their clientele and for security purposes, but I managed to snap a few…
It helps to know what products you’re interested in, but it’s totally ok to go in to browse- it’s so worth it, even if you don’t buy anything. But I had my heart set on the Speedy, the classic bucket tote. Jean Claude showed me all the sizes and leather patterns available as I gleefully chatted with this lovely Japanese lady while we sipped champagne.
Oh, yeah. There was champagne. And it was super delish.
so picture it…
Paris. The Champs d’Elysees. In the LV flagship store. Sipping fine champagne. Meeting new people and shopping.
This is the stuff bougie dreams are made of…
A bientot! ( Until next time!)
Travel well. Shop better.
