    Hi girls,

    I’m visiting Paris for the first time and I was planning to go for a week on Christmas and New Years time but found out the sale starts on January 8th.

    My question is: is the sale worth it to skip Christmas time? I wanna have fun and explore the city but I’m also interested in shopping.

    I’m mainly into vintage and unique pieces, I wanna shop in consignment and thrift stores and local boutiques, and I’m not interested in Zara and such because we have them in Egypt.

    Also I wanna buy a few brand pieces/bags.

    Will the outlets have more sale on sale time or same prices? Is the Hermes sale in January worth waiting?

    Help a girl out pls xx

    Whilst visiting my parents, my mom destroyed my Y-3 Sport jacket bc she didn't follow the care instructions (all the taped seams came undone under high heat in the dryer :cry:).... This means my shopping moratorium has ended!

    kaymet anodized aluminum serving tray (but acquired in America as opposed to the UK b/c I hate carrying things, avoided dealing w/VAT refunds, and didn't wanna pay international shipping)
