I took the day off from work to do some errands that could only be done on a weekday. In a burst of energy and because it was a gorgeous May day I found myself walking a lot more than I had planned. My walk included Fifth Avenue at noon time. It's not often that I've found myself in Midtown Manhattan in the middle of the day in the middle of the week. I'd forgotten how crowded it is, and how much fun it is. Because I knew that Pink Saturday was coming up I decided we would go Pink Fifth Avenue for our Pink Saturday fun.
There's some fancy shopping on Fifth Avenue, some of it right in our pink world. The background at Gucci is pink as is the outfit stage center. I didn't check the prices. I was already in a state of shock after I did ask about some body lotion -- it felt terrific -- that was $180.00 in Bendel's. I thanked the woman kindly and made my way out the door. I was sure that I would faint away if I asked the price at Gucci.
But just across the street I found some pretty pink bags that are much more in line with my budget. I like the pink sunglasses, too.
Yesterday I did a lot of running around, and today I am having a much more leisurely day. I'm having dinner with friends in Brooklyn tonight and have a few quick errands later this afternoon. But the majority of my has been spent reading the New York Times and a book that I am enjoying very much. I hope everyone else is having a sweet Saturday and a happy Derby Day!
