Ok, so back in April I visited my first LV boutique. I live in Dayton, Ohio where there is NOTHING. I was in Columbus at a sorority reunion and one of my younger Sorors from Columbus offered to take me to Polaris Mall during some downtime because she knows it's suited towards my shopping tastes and how much I love LV. To make a long story short, I was completely ignored although there were three SA's and only one other couple besides the group I was with. One of the girls I was with can act kind of ignorant so I didn't let on how upset I was knowing she would cause a scene. I always try to give people the benenfit of the doubt so later on I tried to analyze the situation and find a logical reason why no one tried to help me. The only conclusion I could come to is that I was with a group of young, loud "giggly" girls who were just in there to see an LV boutique (that's not a judgement...the girls I was with have no interest in LV. They just know I like it and its expensive). I was dressed down in a Tokidoki tshirt, jeans and flats, along with a Tokidoki purse....and even on my best day I don't look anywhere near 27. So maybe the SA's thought I was just a young girl who came to look at the LV store and didn't plan on buying anything? That still doesn't make it right but that's all I could come up with. So tomorrow and friend and I are taking a girls' day shopping trip back to Polaris. Although I've been carrying my L.A.M.B. Rasta Mandeville all week (haven't been able to put it down since I got it!), I switched to my green Epi Speedy 25. I figure when I go tomorrow, that'll let the employees know I am an actual customer and serious about purchasing LV. But then there's a part of me that's so angry like what do I have to prove? Why do I feel like I have to carry an LV just to get service? I should be able to go in there dressed any way I want and carrying any bag I want and should get appropriate attention just the same. Now I'm starting to think maybe I shouldn't even stop in when I go to Saks and just keep shopping eLux. I'm kind of anal and compulsive about things....am I thinking too hard on this? Do you think I should carry my speedy tomorrow since the only reason is because I plan on visiting LV? Sorry for the ramble guys!
