Trip to Chateau de Versailles

Last Saturday we took a trip to Versailles where we had a tour of the Grands and Petits Apartments of the King and his Queen. When King Louis the XIV moved away from Paris in 1682, Versailles became the political power house of the nation.

SOLDES! SOLDES! SOLDES!

Because the sales in France are regulated by the government, stores can technically only have 2 sales per year: in the winter and in the summer. This year the 2012 Winter Sale began on January 11th and will continue on until Valentines day in February. A whole month of crazy price slashing with up to 80% off in some cases, and it’s not limited to just a few stores..oh no…it’s EVERY STORE. Jimmy Choos for 150EUR, fur coats for under 300EUR it’s mad! Now I know why the Parisians are dressed so well all year round, they stock up twice and year and hold out the rest of the time.
