‘In department stores, so much kitchen equipment is bought indiscriminately by people who just come in for men’s underwear.’ – Julia Child
OK – so department stores can be dangerously tempting places. But that’s what makes them so exciting and wonderful, right? You venture in (cautiously) with the sole purpose of purchasing a pair of Calvin Klein boxers, but before you know it you’ve been lured into buying a sumptuous new sofa, a microwave, the latest Charlotte Tilbury lipstick, a funky Fossil necklace, beautiful new booties from Bertie, a Bratz doll for your little one, Dolce & Gabbana’s freshest aftershave…all within an hour and just in time for lunch! (Don’t worry – we’ve got that covered too.) What other type of store can claim such amazing attributes?
