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.
