We were like people on a mission when we went to Taipei 101 and walked straight into Miu Miu to ask for this bag in Denim. After being told the price, I tried to do some mental calculations but we all know there is a reason why I’m not an accountant. The SA very kindly calculated the price we would be paying after the tax refund. She also showed us a list of the prices in Asia for comparison.
Suffice to say, my colleague is a happy person after saving some $250 for her new purchase. I don’t suppose the savings are as spectacular as buying it from Europe but the flight to Taipei sure is cheaper!
We were not the only ones in on this Miu Miu revelation since we saw 2 ladies boarding the same flight as us with four giant Miu Miu paperbags. I’m sure they were happy people too.
The story of Christmas Hermes one is a short tale spanning 3 borders.
Bought in France, gifted in Singapore and exchanged in Thailand.
Jo bought this belt in France. She gifted it to me in Singapore as a super early Christmas gift. And I exchanged it for a smaller belt size in Thailand because Hermes in Singapore don’t have my size.
Behold, the amazing magical Hermes reversible brown/black belt which brings us around the world.
We spent New Year Eve in Taipei city. This belt went along with us for the 7 days in Taipei.
I do like the fact that it is very versatile being reversible and such. So there is a choice of either a brown or a black depending on how I feel. The belt does come in the distinctive Hermes Blue/Grey. I would want to get that next.
It is a really pretty belt. But I do get the feeling that the magical belt is more of a look good belt rather than a hold up my pants belt.
But anyhow, it is a really lovely gift!
Thank you for the magical Hermes belt which brings us around the world.
Happy new year!
