the coral of the story

posted on: June 23, 2010

I made the mistake of going into Barefoot Contessa on Sunday. It was a mistake because I rarely leave there without making a purchase. While browsing around, this Nick and Mo romper caught my eye, especially because it was on sale (God I love a good sale!) I jumped into a conversation that two of the employees were having about customers who think they look good in something and they totally don't, so you feel it necessary to talk them out of purchasing it. Anyways, they were super friendly and mid convo I realized one of them was wearing the romper I was interested in. That was the deciding factor, I had to at least try it on!

As you can see from the pictures, I obvs bought the romper AND the sunglasses. My other black sunglasses broke and it's absolutely necessary to own a pair of black framed sunnies!


Later that night, someone tweeted at me asking if I'd been in Barefoot that morning. One of the girls I'd spoken with in the store had recognized me!!!!!! Eeeee, it totally made my day! I have always wondered if anyone in Vancouver recognizes me from my blog or Twitter or any of the other 50 million social networks I'm a part of. People...if you ever see me out and about don't hesitate to ask if it's me (because it is LOL) No really, don't be shy I would love for you to say harro :)

A round of applause for Adam who was sweet enough to take these photos of me. He is so cute when he's a photographer! The last photo was his idea to change angles. He had to climb on top of his smelly hockey bag to get the shot...well done!

  2. Haha it's Adam's patio. The lady next door does all the hanging baskets, it makes up for her loud hacking smoker's cough.
