I was in NYC this weekend to visit my uncle who is in the hospital. Since that was the purpose of my visit, I didn't really have time for shopping. My aunt and uncle had me take my young cousin out for lunch on Saturday and spend some time with her since she is going through a lot right now. She wanted to go to the American Girl store since I always send her American Girl stuff as gifts. Since we were walking around in that area already, I took her on a small detour to the BV store. I didn't want to bore her in there, so my visit was very brief. She cracked me up because she said "this place is so nice I could live in here." The SA that I was talking to was not too friendly until I started asking her very specific questions about colors and styles and she commented that I really knew a lot about the brand and warmed up. Everything in there was so beautiful, but there were two items that really struck me. First was the karung fan clutch (which is on NAP). It was really stunning and elegant. The other was the milano stripe wallet. It really was a work of art. I almost got it, but I had a hard time swallowing $880 for a wallet and was worried that the little loops in the center of the design might catch on other things in my purse and get damaged. I tried on a few bags and fell in love with the pyramid. It is such a classic shape and very comfortable on the shoulder. Both the noce and t. moro were stunning. I think that this will definately be my next bag purchase. I love both of the current colors, but I'm also wondering if it will be offered in more colors next season. I could have spent much longer in there, but didn't want to bore my cousin. She was having fun admiring the patent animal keychains and cell phone charms. They were really adorable! So, I didn't buy anything this time, but have a whole bunch of future purchases in mind.
