My DH and I travelled from his parents house in the Hampton's on Tuesday (Nov. 20) to do a buying trip with my boss. I've never been to NYC before, so he tagged along for help, as he used to live there. After visiting the showrooms in the fashion district, DH and I went to Fred's (at Barney's) and ate lunch. At the next table over, was Charlie Rose (some old journalist guy who I had no clue about) and actress Julianne Moore was leaving just as our food came. --Those were the only two celebrity sightings. After this, we explored around Madison, Fifth, and Park avenues, and made our way to the Guggenheim. We only stayed there about 5 minutes and then caught a cab back to Madison, where I promptly demanded we go to Hermes. If you were hoping for a big reveal story, sorry. He would'nt buy me anything. There were tons of salespeople, and a pretty black SA looked me up and down when I first walked in. Luckily, I had my humble wool Ahmedabad tote around my wrist. I went over to look at fragrances, and the older woman there was very helpful and nice, but when I went over to look at (the object of my deepest desires) the 30cm Lindy in Rose Dragee. I was rebuffed by an angry looking Asian SA, who immediately offered to "show" an Asian shopper a bag in the case (racist?). I pouted and went upstairs. I fell in love with a sleeveless, cableknit sweater with belt loops, and some croc H sandals (style, price, anyone?) After that, I had felt like a tard long enough, and didn't want to beg for something from DH in the store (he's not so good with hints), so we left. I managed to snap a couple shots... I didn't want to get the front window because the security guy would probably yell at me, but they had the Kelly Muff... SO CUTE! The third pic is of me by a section of the Berlin Wall, with my trusty Ahmedabad. ... and then we went back to Long Island. Woo Hoo.
