I am not going to lie, this was the second time I ever stepped foot in an Hermes store - first time was in Paris last year. For some reasons, and please go ahead and flame me to pieces if you disagree, I found the store to be so awfully intimidating. I seriously felt like an outcast in there. ush: Granted, if I had been the gentleman who bought his (lucky) wife a croc birkin, I would have felt more comfortable, but just being a "browser", I felt really out of place. I guess that happens when you walk into one of the finest fashion designer stores on Earth. I still can't say I liked the extremely elitist atmosphere. Then again, I can not blame the SAs, they have to deal with lowlife lurkers like me a lot and giving them attention when they don't buy is not worth the time and effort. At least Megs got a blue Twilly and didn't walk out empty-handed.
