Who are you here with?
Just solo. I want to acquire some Marc Jacobs objects for my mother, my sister and a close friend, and I try to surprise them. Also, I don’t want to torture them by making them wait.
Are the gifts for their birthdays?
It’s just a thank you for being special women in my life. I’m a gift basket type person, and they grow bigger and bigger the more I don’t see you.
How was the line?
It was a typical two and a half hour wait. I worked on a haiku — it’s part of my gift to my friend. Her name is Kayla, and I’m trying to come up with adjectives for each letter of her name. For K, I have kissable, benevolent, knowledgeable, kinetic, lively, guardian. For A, I have Aquarius, ambitious, angelic, authentic, all of it. For Y, young at heart, eager, young — Yes It’s very hard to think of adjectives. I’m still working on the rest.
