nothing works harder than our plastic....
plastic credit cards that is....
everything is at least 30% to 40% cheaper so how not to buy????
and now on week 4 in Europe we are having storage problem
tsk tsk tsk may need to courier/ship some stuffs back
and JS already shipped most of his wines purchases back home
his happiest purchase and gift
don't think many STRAIGHT men would walk into a boutique and get themselves 2 bags
really....not that many
pics taken from our hotel
Lutetia Hotel a wonderful classic hotel decorated by designer Sonia Rykiel
celebrating its 101th years old
yes it is old,elegant and yet modern classic
if u r wondering....nope we haven't seen any ghosts here yet
Edmond Goyard started as a trunkmaker in Paris, who took over from his father
and they are still the famous LEGENDARY trunkmaker in the world
yes Goyard has got a long long long LONG long long history
dated back to his grandfather's time....
the family runs a long LONG long 2 centuries old business of transportation of woods by the rivers in Burgundy
however Edmond Goyard himself was born in Paris after the grandpa decided to move everyone to Paris
they were located at this very same address since 1853
Lot number 233 at the famous shopping strip of Rue Saint Honore
*our fav shopping strip :D*
the distinctive yellow paper for all Goyard's packaging
it has got the initial "Y" monogram formed by three chevrons
also in the shape of tree - symbolised the family's business, which was related to trees
a messenger bag which JS got for himself
in a very nice BLUE color
Goyard sells all colors at an additional of 30% except black, tan and brown
JS was so infatuated by this bag
he even showed it to me how he can carry it so well
esp to work -_-
JS: "Hey hey...look look!!!! so cun rite? I can store my ipad, my document and other lapsap in."
Monkey: "Yes it's very nice but so exp!!!! I can buy a Chanel at that price ady!!!"
its stitching were all handmade
if it's not for the timeframe of 6 weeks, JS would have gotten it monogrammed with his initials
basically it's custom made upon request with your chosen font, initials, colors, design.......
and what about this?
the famous YELLOW Goyard???
Look at its perfect stitches
think I'm beginning to fall in lurve with this brandthis one is Monkey's gift to JS
and he already started using it with pride
nice really nice :)))))))))hmmm I dun think u can carry both like that without looking like a walking Goyard advertisement board
I'll post my purchase soon ok but I guess u already have a sneak peak from the first pic
in the mean time, will keep u guys posted on our whereabouts :))))
can't wait to explore Barcelona tomorrow morning
