Louis Vuitton: a world of elegance, inspiration and innovation.
First of all, I am not trailer trash. I am in fact a comfortably semi-retired 40 year old woman who presents herself well and was raised with values and etiquette. But you'd think I was sporting something torn and stained, smelled like I hadn't showered in days and had teeth missing going by how I am treated at Vuitton at South Coast. Only once have I actually been greeted; whether the store is packed or empty, their motives are clear. Unless you're 17 and Asian with daddy's gold card, they do not want your business. I've gone into Chanel with flip flops and they let me try on a $300K bracelet with matching pierced earrings. I was personally shown various scarf folding techniques upon myself at Hermes while wearing a dress from Target. I was given polishing cloth for free wearing an Old Navy tank top when Tiffany's didn't have my engraving done when they said it would be ready. So when it comes time to invest in a new bag or anything else couture, it won't be from Vuitton at South Coast. Their Vegas shop is far less snooty, but being from OC, the taste left in my mouth is bad enough to even consider buying a good fake, just because of how an average person (with a Chanel bag walks in wearing Jimmy Choos) is treated at Vuitton South Coast. You don't ignore ANY customer - especially when the store has no one else shopping in it.
