The lady who inspired me to buy good shoes and bags!
My Grandma Sauvage is now 96 and she still likes to read books to her great great grandchildren. Grandma Sauvage is one of the reasons I got into fashion. I stayed one week with her every summer since the time I was about 7 or 8 yrs old until I was about 17, then after that I would go stay with my grandparents on school breaks during college or even fly to Arizona and stay a week when I was in my early 20's. We would always go shopping and hit the malls. My grandma loved to tell me what to buy, what didn't look good, what did look good, and she was almost always right and always bought me one outfit. She loved to try on clothes in the dressing room and did not mind that I was in there too, we would spent up to 4 or 5 hours in the mall - just because we both liked shopping .and she was no spring chicken but would walk faster than me.
She loves good shoes and bags and Nordstrom. I have to admit I got that from her and it suits me just fine.
