After strolling down the romantic cobblestones of the Champs-Elysees and window-shopping our way through store after luxury store, we found ourselves lusting over the feeling of the coveted designer experience. We longed to be treated the way those women wereâ€”the ones who waltzed into a boutique and casually sipped complimentary champagne as they confidently browsed through the selection of high-end accessories. â€œLa bonne vie,â€ we thought to ourselves, admittedly a bit jealous. It seemed as though there was a certain price tag attached to the good life, and that didnâ€™t sit right with us. Between bites of fresh French baguettes, we got to thinkingâ€¦ why is this luxurious experience only reserved for people who can afford to spend all that money on designer items?
