Once when I was in high school my choir went to sing at Carnegie Hall. A group of us decided to go have "breakfast" at Tiffany's (har har). My mother, a chaperone, took us to eat danish outside the store and look in the windows. That was 15 years ago. I had never been inside the actual 5th Avenue Flagship Store...
I have to say I was surprised at how laid back this store really was. I have been in some Tiffany stores and have felt so out of place. Here I was encouraged to look, try on... After I made my obligatory Elsa Peretti purchase the wonderful man who helped me encouraged me to visit every single floor. He said it was an absolute must! He was right.
|Isn't that ring just the best thing EVER???|
I just about died when I saw that sapphire ring. Seriously, could anything possibly be more cute?
|I WISH my table looked as nice as this...|
I don't think I've ever been to a store that seriously made everything look wonderful. EVERYTHING!
So many times I've been to New York City for work and I haven't gotten up that way! I'm always staying in Midtown, over 50 blocks away. Everything closes before I can get up to Tiffany & Co. and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Yes, I went there too.
Better yet, I WALKED all the way back just to get even more exercise in after huffing around that museum for several hours. Awesome day! I can't wait to repeat it!
I called my mother as I was walking back. She seemed relatively shocked that I was walking around BY MYSELF in New York City. Seriously, it feels safer on those streets than Toronto. It was a lovely night and I just had to walk the 50 blocks. Too bad I had blisters on my feet the next day. It was worth it.
