That’s a Wrap

banana republic_marshallsI don’t know about you, but getting dressed for work these days have been pretty tough. It’s been so hot out that the thought of wearing layers makes me sweat.

Skirtin’ Around Haifa

madewell_gapWishing I was still in Israel, but it’s back to reality! I’ll at least get to re-live some parts of it through my next few posts. One of the stops along our tour of Israel was Haifa.

So I marked my calendar for the Boston launch event to make sure that I would get my hands on a pair. I arrived about an hour after the launch party started, did a quick lap through the store and could not find a pair in my size. I hunted down the only sales person on the floor and enlisted his help. To my dismay, he said there were none left in my size. Apparently, these shorts were really popular and were  selling like hotcakes. I proceeded to drown my sorrows in the complimentary pink lemonade and mini desserts.
