DH and I just got home from a 4 day trip to NYC. It was fantabulous!! Thank goodness the strike ended so we were able to see one of the shows we had tickets for. Ate at some wonderful restaurants, took a carriage ride through Central Park among other "touristy" excursions. BUT the most exciting adventure of the entire trip was my maiden voyage to the Hermes store!Thanks to a very nice friend I was treated like royalty on my first visit. I must admit I was a little nervous after reading some of your stories about snooty SA's and the like. My SA was very delightful, friendly and helpful. I KNEW exactly what I wanted in a bag but never dreamed I would actually be able to get it! I couldn't have done better if I had made a special order! My prayers were answered! Introducing my gorgeous HAC 32 rouge vif in Fjord with PH! OMG....I absolutely LOVE this bag! I also picked up a wallet in rose shocking chevre (I think...please correct me if I am wrong!) plus a lovely plisse scarf. Oops sorry....don't know the name but loved the colors! Hopefully I can upload these pics. Have patience! UH OH....technical difficulties.....must downsize the pics! Be right back!
