I'm going to leave my field hand feet for last. OK, no, I'll just get it over with now. I've always had wider feet, but honestly living in New York has made it worse. I walk all over the city. I love it, but I moved here with a size 9 shoe -- I am now a very generous 10. I was excited to see if she would be able to do anything to my feet, but really in the end, short of having major surgery, there is nothing I can do except wear high arched shoes.
Dr. Levine's shoe collection was pure insanity. The main thing I want you to know is that the shoes that she had out in her living room and against her wall were not all of her shoes! I had a sneak peek at her closet and there were a couple of hundred more… Wow this woman had the ideal Carrie Bradshaw closet. Unfortunately, she was not willing to part with many. . .which made me sad. I'm still hopeful, though, that Dr. Levine will let me pick some shoes up from her doorman from time to time and put them in the store!
Having a Chanel bag walk in is always a major thing. . .but to have the girl who brought it have gotten it from a YARD SALE?! What?! Things like that happen, though, and it's just our job to make sure that we get our hands on these items and sell them for the consignor as quickly as we can. Obviously Chanel bags are duplicated often and that can spell danger for us. To have fake Chanel bags would be detrimental to our reputation (just like having a fake Birkin at my party is detrimental to my reputation!). So to learn about exactly what to look for by Dani Stahl was an incredible treat. She is the real deal as far as accessories go. She knows their history, their value and whether they are real or not. I will hunt another Chanel bag especially for Karina next season!
