To all of the women who are consistently blubbering about the "snobbiness" of the "little salesgirls" at Raleigh's most upscale boutiques, I have some advice for you- Run to a shrink. Run as fast as you can. I have never seen so much insecurity in my life. Just b/c a girl is attractive and dressed well does not mean she is a snob... didn't we learn this in 7th grade?? The women who work at the local boutiques are passionate about clothing and highly educated. Ask them for some style advice next time you're browsing in their stores, I'm sure they'd be thrilled to rescue you from your "Talbots mom" attire. Just b/c you're over 25 doesn't mean you have to surrender yourself to tapered pants and sweater sets. Muster up some self-confidence, go shopping, and stop complaining about things that you know nothing about.
