As you can tell from their fabulousness, Coco and Colette took Barneys by storm and spent several hours shopping the Alexander McQueen collection. Aren't their purchases just divine? Coco chose a more conservative ensemble (though it's an oxymoron to call McQueen conservative) which she felt would double as a good book-tour outfit, while Colette achieved a biker-chic look with her zippered and ruffled leather jacket and punk boots. Colette has been trying to break free of her "girly-girl" outfit tendencies, and Coco approved of this ensemble which merges the girly-girl with her punk alter-ego.
Shopping wore them out, so they revived their batteries at Freds Chicago. Coco ordered the kale salad because the kale was said to be "massaged" which she thought hilarious. Colette ordered the Oak Street salad because she adores seafood-anything and because she loves green goddess dressing, mostly because of the word goddess. They also ordered a side of truffled pommes frites because, well, duh.
While they ate, they strategized their afternoon shopping. Coco wants to visit the Cynthia Rowley boutique because Rowley is a Chicago native who claims to have ESP. The girls also want to visit Barker and Meowsky on Armitage for designer dog apparel to gift to Colette's neighbor. Coco needed a little persuading, but Colette retorted (as she flipped her hair), "Collars are to dogs what shoes are to women."
Then, tired and spent, the girls will return to the Thompson where they'll unpack all of their bags and play "show and tell" to review all of their purchases.
Hugs and kisses, and may all your shopping be merry, too.
