    Hell yeah...those throw me on a fit. That is probably because I have yet to find Isaia in the wild so my heart flutters each time.

    On another note, I had my first "regular" encounter at a SA near me. One of the lady's came out with a cart full of stuff, she recognizes me and we chat briefly. She asks what I am looking for, and I say "everything." She sees that I am wearing PRL and starts sifting through the cart looking for stuff to show me. She actually found a decent classic mesh polo that was three bucks. Then, she went into the back to find stuff for me, but came up short.

    Then...I get to the checkout counter. There is the manager there (who once botched the discount day once for me several months ago, but he exceeded any mistake by give me a credit far and beyond the mistake he had made). He greets me, remembers me, looks at the cashier and says, "give this man the senior discount, we will see him again." I pushed my luck and ran back to grab a chocolate banana republic velvet blazer and a Ted Baker chocolate blazer that I wouldn't have paid full price for. Such a neat moment to have one employee scouring the back for an item (despite not actually wanting what she was looking for) and another proving me an incredible discount.

    Bring in a dozen donuts ($8?) or cookies next time you go as a thank for for just being nice helpful people. Don't expect a discount each time, but it really helps (I use to make home made cookies for my good Salvation Army that just closed).

    Looks good... but is that a discoloration near the pocket, or just your camera?

    I hate the pictures, I think most of all. Do you change the mannequins ties with each outfit? If you do, you're sick. (Wes)



    Only 4th? :( not even a medal.

    Once, I put the title of a Chanel bag as "Unicorn" to attempt to demonstrate how rare it was. I got so many messages asking what part of it was unicorn. :facepalm:


    Sweet - what were the prices like? New or used stuff?
