Its impossible to ask this without coming off like an excited little kid (Disneyland anyone?) so I won't even try to act all cool LoL

I drop in my H boutique from time to time... Even if I'm not buying, its like birdwatching. All the gorgeous things to look at, but don't have to buy. I mean, I don't need to pluck birds out of the trees to admire their beauty!

But I'm going again in the next week or two, and *I am getting a bag*. No ifs, ands, or beautiful bird butts about it!

So I ask all of you ladies...because my mind is waaay too busy and I'm going a little nuts:

How do you pass the time from the minute you know you're going til the minute you set foot inside the H boutique?

Do you put it out of your head, decide exactly what you want, peruse evilbay to see dif styles or wha??

I make lists of all of the things that I want to look at and try on!

I only get to a boutique once or twice a year, so I have LOTS of time to wait and think!!

Dear Ms. Angelfish:

CONGRAT, sounds like you are 'COOKING TURKEY'?!

Oh, it's hard, the night before I visit any H, I would WISH and hope to see 'anything' interesting and wish NO TRAFFIC, so it can be a smooth drive... And on the way, home, hope DH is out of the house, so I may slip in the 'hunt'?!

Well, since I am on purse ban, these excitements can only be in my dreams or sharing the joy that you ladies bring when you buy.....

Angelfish, usually I'll make up a little mental list ( long or short) of what I hope to see when the SA asks, "what can I show you?....." instead of standing there with my mouth open:drool: having spotted something gorgeous and wanting to rush to it like a child after a stranded puppy.

It helps if I think of this before I actually land at the door of the store.....then, I don't end up leaving and thinking later....."I meant to ask the SA about......?"

:P

Hahahahaha you girls are TERRIBLE but I love it!! :heart:

No no I totally used the wrong example with birdwatching LoL although I did just see a cognac 25cm Kelly in Chicago a week or so. Chitown isn't my store and the SA isn't my SA so it took some cajoling (did I spell that right?) To get him to pull it from the back, Whew. Lovely.

No... MY bag isn't bought yet, I haven't decided what I want. Which is why I'm going nuts!! I have an annie coming up and clearance from DH for a Kelly, or some other bag. He likes Kellys on me, and I tend towards them myself. BUT...

It doesn't have to be a Kelly!! What's a girl with an enthusiastic local SA to do? LoL

(Ps... No exotics on this annie... I don't want to shock DH into an early grave!)

Which means I don't know!

I just daydream about all the H goodies that I want so that by the time I get to the H store, I already have a super long list of things I want. Since a visit to the H store can be a hit or miss at times, a super long list of wants definitely helps.

Oh Angelfish, I just completely give myself over to it! There's no stopping it, the H obsession is like a wild animal, lol. At work, I am constantly day dreaming and at home will jot down notes to myself about what I want to buy next.:upsidedown:
