    any women who has lived through this can relate...to the insanity that rises within us when we enter the Barneys Shoe Floor. Its Glorious and Frightening at the same time ! B)

    hahaha - I was just about to post this. Thanks for doing so.
    The article is soooo true... too funny!

    My favorite part is.... "In a daze, he fingered a strappy orange Givenchy platform lying next to him, tipped it over to squint at the price, then shook his head in existential bewilderment, as if this, finally, was the cracking point of his spirit."

    right?? such a worthy image of our poor husbands who suffer through it all and then end up with a meager dinner because we just blew the food budget on shoes. not that this has happened to me :innocent:

    i loved the part with the 14 year old wanting to buy the dominatrix loubie's

    Thanks for posting this, lucky! :flower:
    So funny but true...my husband keeps a wide berth away from the shoe department, especially during the sales. That is the only time when he wouldn't be peskily breathing down my neck. He knows better now.... :lol:

    Never mind being sold out of my size (8 or 8.5) at sale time ... this year they were sold out of my size in several great shoes (all my favorites) at the beginning of the season. I literally couldn't find anything to buy at full price.

    In past seasons pickings have been slim at sale time ... but this isn't a flagship either.

    it was in thursday's nytimes (6.4.09)...:flower:

    i almost bought a pair of louboutins, but i ended up finding another pair i liked more at nordstrom...
    they had some pretty good styles on sale this time around though...
    my boss got a great pair of pierre hardy sandals, and i tried on the cage ysl's and the neoprene hardy slingbacks...
