By now you have probably read all about the BlogHer cocktail party that took place last Saturday night in San Francisco. But for Bossy’s friend Bobo:
Yeah, so this would be the handbag department of Macy’s Union Square.
“Silly Bossy,” you’re thinking. “What does the Macy’s department store in Union Square have to do with the BlogHer cocktail party?” Exactly.
Nevertheless, Macy’s Union Square was the site of what BlogHer called their progressive cocktail party.
The first stop was Handbags, which was roped-off to the public because the party took place during store hours. Oh yes it did. And it’s not that it was
so odd to be milling around a roped-off maze of Vendi clutches. It’s how odd it was to be milling around a roped-off maze of Vendi clutches dripping Baba ghanoush.
After the perfunctory amount of goat’s milk cheese was smeared on the Gucci, the bloggers were corralled up the escalator and past Summer Knits to their next location.
The next stop was the Shoe and Hosiery department, where Bossy enjoyed some shrimp gazpacho, a mini tostado, and Control Top Pantyhose in barely black.
Which is when Bossy noticed these discarded satay noodles situated perilously close to the display of designer pumps:
But then Bossy remembered she was in Macy’s, where even the designer shoes aren’t that expensive:
Next the bloggers rode another escalator up to the Intimate Apparel department:
This is when a very nice woman approached Bossy and asked if she would please take a photograph with her. Honored, Bossy put down her drink and she put down her purse and she put down her camera and she wrapped an arm around the very nice woman.
“Not a picture taken with you, you nobody,” said the very nice woman. “A picture taken by you!”
And for their final stop of the progressive party, the bloggers were shuttled to the Furniture Department on the top floor, where they ate their weight in thumb-sized Caesar salads and sank—weary and drunk—into the widely spaced sectionals.
