This fountain drove me a little nuts after a while.
How well? Let's see what we bought in a matter of two hours, not including lunch.
- Pandora bracelets were purchased and discussed obsessively in the backseat. G. and I had no clue, and spent quite a bit of time trying to sort out the attraction. If anyone can clarify the appeal of this jewelry line to Florentina, please leave a comment or two! (Are they like Trollbeads?)
- Chloé Perfume at Sephora.
- Estee Lauder face creams at Nordstrom. (Plus two big bonus gifts!)
- One laptop adapter at the Apple Store.
- Two nail buffing kits from a good-looking Israeli man who notices women's nails at his kiosk.
What didn't we buy?
- An unnamed handbag or two in Nordstrom.
|...the print of this shoe = no sale.|
- A Macintosh laptop. (It was so busy, the sherriff's office had deputies stationed in the Apple Store.)
- Gifts for our spouses/partners. Sorry, guys.
The shape of these shoes plus...
- Christian Louboutin shoes were examined carefully and admired at Nordstrom. We had no idea how anyone affords them, but we'd like to see someone wear them in public. (On the other hand, G. had trouble with the shoes that have been seen on Lady Gaga -- resembling leopard-skin lobster claws.)
|Ice skating rink in the Galleria.|
I will admit that the mall was a little intimidating at first, but it was a great trip. The ice skating rink was really fun to watch, and one of us had been an ice skating instructor during graduate school up in Canada, so it was probably even more interesting for her to watch.
Admittedly, we were rather tame shoppers considering how deprived each of us had been in the months leading to this breakout. But at least no one came out of the Galleria emptyhanded. If that had any chance of happening, we would have marched that woman to the good-looking Israeli man with the nail buffing kits.
We were all glad to return to our hotel, though we secretly wished we had decided to stay in one of the two hotels at the Galleria.
