NM Run

Over the holidays I met Ms. YSL at Neiman Marcus for lunch. We got to catch up, see some of our old co-workers and most importantly have Tortilla Soup.

 It was very strange yet exciting to use a Visa for the first time in the store.


After lunch we hightailed it to the handbag department. Within minutes Ms. YSL had already found her new bag. Handbags always look more appealing when you weren't the one that unboxed them or carried them down from the stock room.

I had my eyes on a new pair of Louboutins. I have taken exceptional care of my current pairs...are you listening JCW. This may be his first comment ever, I can already see it..."No".

MY NM hasn't had new Loubs in forever! Hopefully they`ll get some in soon. I am loving the Chanel bag! xo

We were at NM at Tyson's over the holidays too. What a ZOO! They take VISA now?? When did that happen?

I love the NM cafe! I live less than 10 minutes from Tysons so you can imagine I'm guilty of frequenting there often! Whenever I went in over the holidays I always found something new to add to my Christmas list!

Love Neimans!! We have one about an hour away and every now and then I go over and make an afternoon out of it, they have the best shoe dept and handbags in the world!
And tortilla soup....yum!

Love NM and swoon over those Loubs and the Chanel (though I'm not a navy fan, I'll take a Chanel in any form!)

JMW said...

Okay, that photo of your lunch is making me hungry! Yes, JCW needs to shower you with a new pair of Loubs - you deserve it, right? BTW, what kind of bracelet is your friend wearing in the shot with the Chanel bag? I saw one on a woman at a committee meeting the other night and was curious. Very nice. :)

Hehehe, I'm cracking up--I hope JCW sees this post! We don't have a NM in Richmond :(

Mmmm that soup looks so good!! NM is one of my favorite stores to browse.

Fun, fun, fun! I like meeting my mother at the one close to her house, we're fiends for the popovers with strawberry butter.

Sending you a smile, I hope you're enjoying your getaway!

I adore NM strawberry butter and I am ready for another lunch! xx

Love this! I didn't know Neimans just started accepting these cards? I guess I always use my Amex so I never noticed. And I love the Loubs!

xoxo.

I love those black bow loubs! I tried them on before xmas at the NM in SF, but I needed a smaller size and they were literally sold out everywhere. I am still soo sad. I really hope you get a new pair!!
