When I make up my mind, I don't waste time. Besides, for all the reasons mentioned -- late season, risk of not finding my size, handled merchandise, etc., I don't pussyfoot around.
i hope you enjoy them. i really like those beautiful EG styled monks too (but for now my mind is sort of obsessed with santoni fams)!
i dont mind paying retail at all for all the good reasons for it. i have more than several shoes i have bought all full retail just because i want it NOW.
where do you go to gucci , in south coast? the one at south coast i usually go to Shoba, young man with thick black frame glasses and shaved head. he is the coolest and really down to earth.
laron, please post pics later. we would love to see them
oh, and if you go to the rodeo gucci, make sure you park at the underground structure at barneys and get it stamped. free 2 hour parking. if you didnt already know that!
