let's go walk to the border

Soooooo, I didn't take a single photo when I was in NYC. Not even on my phone. Speaking of camera phones, the docents/guards/Nazis at the McQueen exhibit at the Metropolitan are super hardcore. This tourist took a photo on her iPhone, and they called her over and made her erase it. Also, this little kid walked in front of me when I was at Laguardia and threw up what appeared to be chocolate milkshake in my path.

I stopped by the Isabel Marant boutique in Soho minutes before I had to leave for the airport. I treated myself to this skirt and probably would've been coaxed into purchasing more if the blonde salesgirl didn't have permanent stankface on top of a surly attitude. Just because you work at a popular boutique doesn't give you free license to be an unpleasant pseudo-elitist even if there was an irritating family with an unruly small child running around the store. (Not my child. If I ever have children, they are not allowed to accompany me on my shopping excursions. That is Mommy-time.) If you want to get friendly service, go to the black salesgirl with natural hair. She is really great.

Also, if you want to see what my face looks like when it's 90+ degrees with the sun glaring in my face, head over to Meredith's blog, where you can see photos from food truck Thursdays in Midtown.

  1. wait you have those balenciaga boots?!! OOooh, very jealous :) I hate when salespeople of fancy stores aren't nice or give you a stink eye, ugh. Over here in Belgium there's more unfriendly staff than there are friendly sales people, seriously. France is way better, much nicer!

  2. Hate hate hate rude salespeople. I don't quite understand how they don't get that their attitude affects sales. Ugh. I've definitely walked out of stores without purchasing anything because of this.

    The skirt is lovely! Really digging the print.

  4. Print of that skirt looks pretty darn fab. I am really bad when I get a bitchy assistant, I ask to talk to the manager and say I need someone more experienced to help me out!

  5. Haha I was laughing at this whole thing, what an unfortunate series of events! Yet you managed to see the humor in it all.

    I've had a similar experience at a certain shoe store that shall not be named in Toronto. I was baffled because they weren't that upscale. Lol. I left an went to holt renfrew instead. Surly attitudes are the worst!
