Keep Calm and Carry On

So I know you are suppose to have coup de foudre when you see a man - or a woman - and you fall madly, passionately in love with them.  But I have this itsy bitsy problem:  I experience a coup de foudre when I see something like, a shoe or a bag or a dress.  And the thing with coup de foudre is that you get OBSESSED.  Totally obsessed.

You wake up in the middle of the night and it is the first thing that comes to mind.  You wake up in the morning and the first thing you think about is a rendezvous: I will meet my secret lover at Bergdorfs at noon or I will meet my secret lover at RARE vintage in the afternoon (it is terrible thing owning a vintage store because coup de foudre is almost a part of the job description and then you know, you have to sell, what you love and it can get a little uncomfortable when a client buys something and when they leave, you can't let go of the shopping bag.)**

Hello Lover:

Yves Saint Laurent Cardinal Loafer Pump. 


Say what?!   

Breathe.  Deeply.  Relax.  Take a yoga class.  Do some meditation.  Be Patient.  Be stoic...  Keep calm and carry on.  Until the sales.

**of course, I don't really hold onto client's shopping bags.  How silly!  I mean really!  Whoa!  Wait a minute someone just purchased my favorite YSL silk scarf blouse and this blouse and I - we had a moment - total coup de foudre...  Have to run!
