I was just wondering, what's minimum wage like in the UK? Because 410 pounds for paddington or balenciaga boots - that makes them unbelievable accessable if your minimum wage is anything like what it is here in Toronto (in the $7.50CAD range). I envy you guys and am seriously thinking of moving to London!

Well, our minumum wage has just gone up to a bit over 5.00, and you can't get a Chloe paddington for 410, it costs 794 (from NAP).

I've seen some Balenciaga boots for 450 from Cricket but these were past season and the price is problaby put down, that I do not know.

I would not say designer items is unbelievably accessible no matter where you live in the world.

If the t-shirt is only $440 then how come the tank top that's show in this month's vogue is $995? Is the tank made out of a different material?

Devil in Balenciaga tank top
Can someone help me on deciding which size to get. I am not sure if i should get the 34 or 36. Are the tank top tight when you wear them? or more stretchy? Thanks in advance.

I bet they are faux. they probably use the same amount of pearls as a regular pearl necklace, and nice pearl necklaces will cost more than $1k...so they have to be faux.

I usually wearing xs for all tank top. For the jacket I wear 34 for most jacket. I be getting mine from Aloharag. Since there is limitation of 2 for each customer...trying to get the right size. I want it to fit me but not too tight that i end up suffocating myself..

I would get the 34, since that is what you wear in all tops.

I was very surprised when I was flicking through Argos catalogue and they had the stripey balenciaga inspired trousers and the vest top!
