Le Shopping

Paris is simply superb for shopping, partly because you can find many brands that are not available to Austria. Our first stop on Saturday was to Printemps, where I  bought a similar pair of ? whatever the official fashion term for those kind of masculine slim suede brogues is. The empress owns a beautiful pair in caramel brown, but I was quite taken by the grey pair I ended up buying. I had wanted to buy a pair of such shoes for quite a while, but not seriously looked for it in Vienna. As these are obviously not ballet flats, which I own about 10 pairs of and always tend to gravitate towards in shoe stores, I felt utterly justified:

I also bought some stuff at Sephora and a white linen blouse from Uniqlo, where I got the bag you can see me holding in the picture below: 
As befits a girly weekend, we talked make-up and ended up swapping palettes. I got a two-tiered Bobby Brown palette and the Empress was happy to get a Chanel duo in exchange.

For lack of a sugar daddy we only stroked the LV bags we liked and salivated a bit in the big flagship store.
