Springtime in Paris: Shoppers Paradise

Are you dreaming of springtime in Paris?

This is a story that will leave you mesmerized. It’s not a fictional story nor an imaginary fashionista, it’s the story of our very first BopTalk Celebrity…

Over the past few weeks here at PurseBop.com we’ve been investigating international price adjustments in the handbag market and the implications of a weakening euro for purchasers in Europe, the US and Asia. Right on time, the lovely “@dreamingofh” shared her own incredible shopping report at BopTalk of her conquests during her trip to Paris just this week. You’re going to swoon!

She roamed the streets of Paris, hopped between Hermes, Louis Vuitton and Galeries Lafayette and dined on the tastiest of croissants. She came away like a bandit, snagging five exquisite items at prices you won’t believe! Unless of course you’ve been following our coverage 🙂

We interviewed her just before saying au revoir to Paris and, even in her jet lag haze . . .she was kind enough to share her receipts so we could do a little “handbag math”.  Similar to what we did with the WSJ article, we’ve pulled out the prices she paid and calculated her savings. In case you’re considering buying that ticket to Paris, this info might just make it worth it! What you are about to see will amaze you…

To further the point, let’s do a little more math together: if we add up the sum of each item’s savings in US dollars, you will see the total @dreamingofh saved by shopping in Paris versus here in the United States. And keep in mind we haven’t  even considered her VAT refund.

Firstly wonderful to see you here dreamingofH, I just love your IG gallery and thanks for sharing with us your fabulous goodies with such gorgeous pics. Love everything! The LV alma BB is adorable. What a gorgeous color. The woc is so pretty and I just adore your new laduree charm. Have always loved their charms but this parisian gal design is so so cute. And of course your new Kelly is simply TDF and the perfect end to your paris trip. Congrats!!

Congratulations! Three amazing bags! I agree that FSH is bonkers at times. I only went one time and didnt bother returning. The pink YSL is TDF! I am smitten with that shade of pink. As for RC, As youknow, I always thought (and still do) that it was H’s best red.
