This will be short because it’s really late! Had a fabulous meet-up with Anita and Shelley here in Chicago. That over there on the left is the bag Anita and I visited at the Hermes store. The picture is crap, unfortunately, but it is the most gorgeous shade of green. $9,050. Why the $50 do you think? I mean a nice, round 9k or 8,999 to give the illusion of saving. As Anita says, 9k is the new 5k. As soon as I don’t have a mortgage payment or utilities to pay and all that other boring stuff, I’m getting this bag.
Quick visit to Hermes that wasn’t so quick. Visited the bag, and then this box below wound up belonging to me. Can you guess what’s in it? Well, you have to guess. First person who picks right will get – we all agreed on the prize earlier over dinner and sniffing this – a small sample of the Xerjoff Iriss.
After Hermes, it was off to Barney’s go visit Anita’s other purse, the Valtrex? I may not have that right. I’m quite sure I don’t. Gorgeous bag, but too big for me. Shelley joined up with us there as we wandered through purses, Shelley headed down for a quick spray of the L’Artisan Nuit de Tubereuse,which she really liked. Then it was time to find some drinks and food. Lots of conversation and laughing and people watching ensued. We all can’t help looking at women’s purses and shoes. What is that about?
And we should have known about the dessert. We saw one dessert go by that was monstrous, but we asked very carefully about this something bottom pie and were told it would feed 4. Okay, there were three of us, and we don’t mind leaving whatever on the plate, so of course we needed some. This thing was like 6-8 inches high and about that wide. It was humongous and delicious, and we each had about four bites and called it quits. It could have fed 10 people easily.
My thanks to Anita and Shelley for a great time, they are always both great company and warm and delightful and funny and entertaining – everything you want your friends to be. Thank you!
