From now until August 2nd, it’s sale season in France!
Shopping…what can I say? Hard to resist during the sales! And, for those in the know, even harder to resist the week before the official sales during what they call “private sales”. These sales are unadvertised to the public at large, and there is no signage or other indicators on the storefront or even in the store. Sign up for the newsletter of your favorite stores as they will contact you via text or email with the private sale dates. That means, you get first dibs on all the best stuff!
I picked up a couple great items in the pre-sale season this week at a whopping 40% discount! Check out this dress perfect for an evening out during my upcoming trip to Sicily, and this pair of surprisingly comfortable heels that should look quite nice with my navy dress shorts.
What do you think? Jealous? No reason to be! You can shop the online sales from anywhere…

Lingerie and Bathing Suits
- IKKS (where I got that fabulous dress!)

Whatever you do, don’t wait too long! Items go fast, even in the pre-season. I missed out on some earrings I had been oogling for lack of making up my mind in time. So shop early to avoid regrets!
