1. Here is my tip to shop in Paris during the Summer sales in proper conditions, while saving money: wait for the last week of “soldes”.

    “In proper conditions”, because the stores are then empty – of people… OK: *and* of decent goods, I admit. But here comes the second part of the bargain: the remaining articles are given away, AND most of them either don’t fit you, or come in ugly colors. So you end up buying… nothing! Hence the saving.

    PS: Oh, and I’m in love with sateen-lined tuxes ever since I saw George Clooney wearing one so handsomely…
