“Champagne and Chanel” is fun until the choices have to be made. We hit every stop that day and had seen our fair share of boxes. White, orange, and now black. I sat in front of three Chanel boxes, and fantasized about the promise that each one held inside. Which box contained the ONE? Picking was impossible…
Curious about my final decisions?
I have many surprises to reveal from my recent trip to France despite the suggestive hints I have dropped along the way @pursebop IG. I’ve endlessly teased you with snippets from the #pursebopsinFRANCE hashtag, but the time has finally come… to share not just all my indulgences but also the many more gorgeous treasures my fabulous fashionista friends were also trying to fit in their suitcases the eve before we left.
Shopping in France has been a topic of conversation here at PurseBop for many months now. Brands taking on new pricing strategies combined with the fluctuating Euro has changed the shopping landscape considerably. I had the opportunity to explore these trends first hand and have much to report.
More than anything, I look forward to sharing my personal experiences and observations to better serve the many shopping fashionistas out there heading to Europe . I welcome any thoughts, questions or suggestions on our discussion platform BopTalk. Let’s create an engaging and helpful resource for all of us!
We (Mr. PurseBop and I) had the delightful privilege of sharing our travels with 4 other very dear couples. Together we rented an exquisite villa in Saint Tropez that served as our home base. Each day was it’s own adventure – we took daily road trips (or yacht ones) to nearby vineyards and cities and drove to Monte Carlo, Cannes, Aix en Provence, and Nice.
One would think from our scenes of shopping indulgences that we spent all our times in boutiques. But in all honesty, the damage was done at bullet speed, in record breaking short bursts, and only in the limited allotted time by our hubbies who quickly grew weary of our retail sprees.
Here’s the plan:
After considerable deliberation I have decided that I will present each of my friend’s complete shopping scores in a separate post. We will compare prices paid in France versus the cost here in the US. Additionally I have asked each of our lovely ladies a few questions regarding their decision making processes. At any point, I urge you to jump in on BopTalk and ask questions or even make suggestions as to how to improve the presentation of materials. I am hoping to make this an interactive series.
Sharing a hop scotch of random pictures from the group, there are many more where these came from with the hashtag #pursebopsinFRANCE on IG.
