For a consulting job in California, we did receive a TIP of $ 950.00 so I was going to splurge on something, while shopping in San Francisco; my favorite city. Numerous times we went there for our work and so I loved to shop at Neiman Marcus in San Francisco and I. Magnin (was there also at the fare-well-sale on October 23, 1993. LOVED their catalog as well. One of my all time favorite stores and it was sad to see them going out of business. But back to Neiman Marcus. After visiting the Chanel boutique, where they didn't have my size boots, I got them at Neiman's and had them shipped via UPS to Georgia, to save on the sales tax. What a royal feeling to possess these special boots! We both celebrated this acquisition at our favorite little restaurant on the 3rd floor of 116 Maiden Lane; AKIMBO. We've been there many times, also for some coffee with dessert while shopping at Union Square. But that too is no longer there. Nostalgia...
Still love these oh so soft and comfy boots. Actually I wore them yesterday when we went shopping in Atlanta.
The weather was sunny and my boxy Escada rose sweater was enough for going outside. These pictures were taken a couple of days ago in our garden.
This Escada rose sweater is jacquard knit.
On the steps of our gazebo so husband Pieter could zoom in on the buttons of my boots.
Someone once joked about making those buttons into currency... But I hope they will stay on my boots for many more years!
So this is still a great memory of California in many ways.
