27 Jan Friends Don’t Let Friends Shop Alone
[wpvideo wXr27jaU]Paris is a dangerous place for women who like to shop. Fortunately for me, I do NOT like to shoe shop and almost never do in the US, but show me a chocolate eclair in a window at Carton in Paris and I’m inside purchasing one in record time. Understanding weakness for all things Parisian, I was committed to help the original Gal Pal Lisa with her mild shoe addiction. In the past, Paris has always been particularly challenging for Lisa to NOT buy shoes or boots. If you have been to or live in Paris, you understand the problem. If you have not yet had the privilege and aspire to visit the City of Light, beware – every other shop in Paris is either a shoe store or displays the eye candy prominently as part of the fashion they are promoting.
The goal was to be supportive; I wanted to know the game plan in advance of the two of us spending the next three days in Paris together. If she wants an enabler, then enable I will. If she wants to be strong and resist, then I shall throw myself across the threshold blocking her from entering any place that has a whiff of shoe leather. Will she shop for shoes, or won’t she? Watch the video to see Lisa’s decision. Then take the poll below to chime in on what you think actually happened.
