On to Rodeo Drive. First stop, the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. Such a lovely place and they let you come in and wander around snapping pics. So friendly. And of course you can't help thinking of the movie, Pretty Woman. Our first store was Tiffany and Co. Em and I started browsing but little did she know, I was looking for a particular item. I had done my homework and knew they sold a lovely heart shaped charm necklace that said, "please return to Tiffanys". She knew something was up when I motioned to a clerk that I needed to see something in the case. Oh my, did Em get excited. She couldn't believe it! We both got matching necklaces and they wrapped them up in the iconic baby blue box with white ribbon and the matching little blue bag. As I told my girl, everyone should get a little blue bag at least once in their life. And everyone should be able to see that look of surprise and delight on a daughter's face.
We wandered the stores; Prada, Armani, Jimmy Choo, Michael Kors and marveled at the items. Wow! We saw expensive cars; a Bugati! Lots of flowers and many tourists. It was a treat to see how the other side lives, and we could pretend for a little bit with our little blue bag dangling from our fingertips. :) Always, Kit
