I just returned from Macy’s, in a vain attempt to buy a new winter coat.
I feel dehumanized right now.
Not only was everything boring and blah, nothing was cheaper than $200. Unless I wanted one of those “puffy” coats every other teenager in New York wears. You know, the kind with the cheap fur lining around the hood.
This makes the 3rd large department store I’ve gone to in hopes of finding an affordable and cute coat.
I also looked at the winter boots. Equally dehumanizing.
Salt in the wound: All the British shoppers who fly over to New York for the weekend, just because the dollar is cheap, compared to the pound. They packed Macy’s, flush in cash, and kept getting in my way.
If you can’t find a coat you like/can afford at the Herald Square Macy’s — I think one of the largest department stores in the U.S. — then you’re just S.O.L.Sigh.
