As you ladies probably know, SG has three Hermes stores along the same shopping belt. I usually shop at one of the smaller ones, but today I chanced a visit to the flagship because I was watching a movie in the building across the street. Now, I've always been intimidated by the flagship because (IMO) it stands very imposingly along the corner of the road. So all along I said, oh well, never mind, I can still get all my goodies at the smaller store. But I was pleasantly surprised when I stepped in today, although I was at first taken aback because there was no SA in sight on the first floor. The usual store I'm at only has 1 floor, and SAs are always within a foot or hovering nearby whenever you step in to offer assistance. Of cos I was also pleasantly surprised to see our local craftsman Said hi to him but didn't say much otherwise (too busy gawking all the pretty colors on the shelves!) I first asked to see agendas since that was the top of my list.. unfortunately for the MM size they only had blue jean and gold. I'd seen BJ in pictures and thought I would be ok with it... but I just didn't feel it, KWIM? The lovely SA did help me call the other stores to check color availability but they didn't have any. She did promise to call if they had incoming stock in the colors I was interested in. I chose to pass on that and instead settled for pocket squares. I have another confession to make. While I don't doubt the quality and loveliness of H scarves, I've had trouble really liking the designs. As in really loving them. But today I found one that I really really really love (but then the theme is close to my heart, so go figure ) So now, I've reversed my opinion of the flagship (it's not as imposing inside as it is from the outside) and of H scarves (while I still don't feel many of the designs yet, I do believe every now and then I'll chance upon one that I really really love and that's more than enough for me) and I wanted to share my new loot!
