I got distracted in Nordstrom..

I was jewelry shopping with my friend Cara for a black tie wedding she's attending in a few months... Whilst browsing and accidentally asking the sales associate to show Cara a $1,500 necklace - I stumbled upon some bright, bold, and beautiful beach hats.  As you may know...I have a Charleston trip in March! So of course my eyes sparked and I was mesmereied. Then I saw her.

The Sonia Rykiel Straw Sun Hat.


And then the sales rep saw me. Fall for her.  She proceeded to come over, and ask.  Do you know this is Sonia Rykiel.  I reply with "No, no...honestly I don't even know who she is!" Okay great silly me, lost in Nordstrom.  Dreaming about the beach.  Then she asks the dreaded question.  "So what is your price point?  $600? $200?"  I quiver at the thought of spending more than $60 on a hat.  And that is for Derby.  I told her I didn't have a budget really in mind. LOL. Yes as in I don't really have a hat budget. From there, I learned the history of Sonia Rykiel.  The Queen of Knit. Created her label in Paris, France. No hems in her stitching..."would you look at that work?" Meanwhile I'm thinking, look like normal knits to me?! Mehh.....the story went oonnnnnn.  And on.

Point of Story.

Don't get lost or distracted in Nordstrom.  Don't fall in love with a $250 hat.  And certainly don't stay to hear the history of Sonia Rykiel.

  2. So you are looking to rid your girl of these unwanted stalkers when you
    are drawn to Willow Creek's Black Mirror Castle. Even Halloween parties with the very best Halloween costumes can get dry after everyone's
    seen the costumes to be seen and passed out the candy to the beggars.

  6. The only hurdle to accessing this is of course human limitations
    and the fact that the brain does not function solely as a learning tool for
    the human being. Brazenhead is a great place to go with your family or for a business lunch or dinner, but
    if you are looking for a party atmosphere,
    this isn't it. Ask your local club to run this for you.

    middle of New Braunfels' hottest, sunniest weather season. Think about it, you're
