So, I was really excited about my trip to Athens, and I thought I'd be able to visit one of the boutiques while there. With everything I had going on there (for my friends wedding), and the 110 degree weather I never made it to the center of the city to visit the LV store...I was hoping to buy/see some pieces that are hard to find here in the states. I did see lots of LV, real and fake. I saw mainly monogram and damier around the city. My denim baggy was the only one I saw. Lots of fakes at the airport, and some beautiful, real luggage at the Milan airport. I was in heaven there! My DH had taken a quick trip to Atlantic City last weekend, and made some fast $$$. I (jokingly) told him to hurry to the LV boutique before he gambled away the $$$, and buy me something small in vernis...in pomme if they had it. Now I told him something small like a wallet or key cles. I was trying to describe what the vernis was, and told him to ask for the shiny red stuff LOL. I arrived home Tuesday to a pretty large sized brown bag. I was shocked b/c he had a change of luck at the tables and came home having lost $. He asked for something "shiny and red" and they showed him the amarante...he said he didn't like the red so he got me the Amarante Roxbury!!!! I immediately felt guilty having bought a few bags already this year. Then he told me that he almost returned it to get his $ back so the guilt suddenly dissappeared and I became very protective of my new bag. The SA told him it was the last one they had, and he had to have it! My dilemma is only that I wasn't in LOVE with this before....I'm sure it will grow on me, but I'm wondering if I should exchange it for something else. I need to really think about it because I definitely need to branch off from all the monogram stuff. I was looking for a larger tote bag that would fit my laptop, but I also needed something that I could use while more dressed up. I hate to return anything he picks out b/c I don't want him to take it personally...what a good dilemma to be in. Sorry this got so long! I definitely missed this place while I was gone! I'll try to post pics later.
