i went to the nyc soho store tonight to pick up a bandeau i had on hold. it was the only store in the city that has it. it's unbelievably freezing here and that's so far from my office and apt but i went. when i got there there was literally no one in the store. still not one person approached me. i went to the counter and asked the SA for the bandeau. It was sitting in a bag and when she took it out it was folded really teeny in a basically wadded up piece of tissue. I held it, tried it out and decided to buy it. she put it back in the wadded up paper in the little bag. and was going to sell it to me that way! i was like hi, can i have a box. so after i paid she went and put it in a box. i was like don't look because i just knew i didn't want to see it. i asked about fixing my bag and she sent me downstairs. fine. the women downstairs were really nice and i got to see the new pastilles keychains and the heart cles in white, pomme and white mc. they are a lot bigger than i thought they would be but such an awkward shape for anything other than coins. i went to show them the scarf and she hadn't even put in a piece of tissue! ok, i know it's probably the cheapest thing in lv but it's silk! have a little reverence! anyway the women downstairs offered to wrap it nicely for me which she did. no ribbon or anything but nice tissue. one of the SAs was standing there looking at the new stuff with me when the other SA was wrapping the bandeau. she could not even be bothered talking to me. she just looked at the stuff, put it away and walked away. seriously? you can't even say hi? anyway i am trying to decide if i should keep the bandeau. it's really pretty but i'm not sure i need it.... i sort of wish i bought it somewhere and had it shipped. it might have been packed nicer and i wouldn't have had to freeze. lol.
