In case you weren’t aware, Paris is the second most expensive city in the world to live in. And as if it weren’t already evident, I saw two things today that confirmed the superfluous wealth of Parisians. First, I saw a woman sloshing around in the snow in Christian Louboutin heels. Really? I suppose if you can afford a pair you can afford to destroy them. Then I saw a woman on the metro taking up TWO seats with her designer purchases – there had to have been at least 5 humongous bags, all tied neatly with a ribbon and looking pristine despite the weather. Come on, if you can afford to drop a couple grand at Armani and Printemps, I’m pretty sure you can afford to take a cab home and leave the rest of us on the metro with a seat!
