I got these for my birthday last year from my “Babes Who Dine” group. I decided to swap out my current locker room slippers to this one. Being super brand whore-ish at the gym, ya know.
I wanted to get Bear a TF belt (with the sideways T) since it’s so fitting with our surname, but it was too expensive for me. Totally out of my budget.
So I got him these sandals that I’ve been eyeing. He got really upset because he doesn’t want to wear $400 sandals. BTW, they were $325.
He said he’s going to return it. 🙁
My faux Valentino Camo print skirt also came in the mini style. Much longer but I had it altered. 😛
Went to Century City Mall the other day with JO and couldn’t help but notice how Michael Kors is totally ripping off every premium designer, Valentino, Prada, Hermes…
I saw the calf hair slip ons and I loved! I also loved the camo bags they had but I’d rather have the Valentino~
I haven’t been to Neiman Marcus, Saks and Barney’s is such a long time.
I was asked to join a friend and of course I said yes!
Any reason to be around anything to do with spending money is my favorite past time!
I didn’t spend a dollar because OBVIOUSLY I’m in NO place to spend money.
So I just browsed and took #selfies.
Oh and of course, be the good friend and tell them my honest truth about what they were trying on.
I must say, I didn’t remember which was where and where to go for what.
We browsed in this order:
NM, Saks & Barney’s.
I even wore heels because our plan was to do dinner in the area after.
I felt awkward being in an unfamiliar surrounding. It may have been in my head because I just worry too much but I swear every employee was staring and judging.
I know how these SAs work. I don’t shop there, I don’t frequent so they stare and make comments to each other.
I enjoy my online shopping where it’s judgment free. Of course if I had a truck load of money to spend, I’d spend my free time there, buying things. Everything.
I felt uncomfortable. I haven’t purchased anything super expensive in so long.
The last time I was in Saks was when I bought my Manolo Blahnik’s I wore for Jo’s wedding. I actually bought the shoes back in 2006. Eight years ago. O.O
Last time I was in NM? At Fashion Island in Newport Beach. I was living in Coto de Caza and married. A different life.
It’s been a while and I didn’t feel like I belonged. I would eventually like to feel comfortable at the mall again but not until I can buy stuff. I don’t like to eye shop. It’s like foreplay and no climax.
I guess I’ll see you when I see you, shopping mall!
The best part about hanging out was that I got to see her new 4 series Gran Coupe! It’s sofa king gorgeous!
