New in: GUCCI


Today I am showing you my latest sunglasses and shoes that I got at Gucci in Luxembourg. I wanted these items in pink but they were out of stock. So I went for black instead. 


The sales assistant greeted me with a ni hao and she was quite nosey. I had so many ni haos in Italy recently (they are outweighing the konnichiwa). I'm tired of having to explain that I don't speak Mandarin, nor Japanese. She told me that she was of Chinese origin (who cares) and asked me about my ethnicity. Then she wanted to know what I was doing for a living. She went on to question me about the brand of my shoes and my handbag. I was a bit surprised that someone who works in fashion was not able to recognise the fairly obvious stuff that I was wearing. 

At the end, she disappeared to wrap up my purchases. Meanwhile the cashier was merging profiles that I had created in Milan and Dubai and I had to provide additional personal information. By then, they knew quite a lot about me. When the sales assistant returned with my items, I asked her to unwrap the bag and the shoe box because I wanted to be sure that I was going home with the correct size. Guess I can be a pain as well at times.

  11. I don't blame you for becoming irritated because that was definitely an uncomfortable situation and very unprofessional of the associate, very rude! I also don't blame you for double checking all of the your pieces were sized correctly because that's happened to me when an associate becomes friendly and begins talking a lot, they forget what they're doing and either have forgotten to put my items in the bag, charged me incorrectly and in some cases, have given me the wrong size! You weren't being a pain at all :) I hope you have an amazing start to your new month, gorgeous, and enjoy your fabulous new pieces, they're so chic!

  18. Love the shape of the sunglasses and I think that black goes with any outfit together, but pink not. So, perfect choice :)

  19. I'd have felt annoyed by this situation. It also happens to me when I travel abroad - people think I am Russian. The stuff is very cute. I have noticed you wear cat-eye sunglasses a lot.

  20. lol the standard greeting!
    She does seem pretty nosy..maybe she is new and kind of over eager.

  22. Thanks for understanding my point of view! I guess it's always better to double check the purchase and be safe rather than sorry. Have a great day Jalisa! xo
