les soldes are on!
Wednesday marked the beginning of the winter sales in Paris which will last until the 14th of February. Discounts start off around 20-50% off most fall-winter merchandise in an attempt to make room for the new collections, and rumor has it that prices will drop significantly as the sales draw to a close. I've only bought one item which will remain a secret for a bit longer. For now, I give you a glimpse into one of the major shopping routes near my apartment: Rue Victor Hugo. As if the French were unaware of les soldes, each storefront has a uniquely designed sign, ranging from simple to sparkly!
