La Petite Coquette.

La Petite Coquette is a high priced lingerie store on University between eight and ninth. It's a cool little shop because it has all sorts of pretty stuff in the widows- the displays are consistently really nice. I have always enjoyed checking out their stuff from the sidewalk as I travel to and fro school- I guess that might be creepy if I was some old man but since I have a more... (vested? no... wrong word)... well a different kind of interest in the stuff they offer, I suppose it isn't as creepy as it could be.

What boggles me is how this place stays in business. I NEVER see people there. I don't see people going in, coming out, or anything. Never. And if I do it's a woman who works there putting a corsette on a mannequin or something. It's so odd. Plus, they must have to sell a few thousand dollars of lingerie a month to keep their rent. I mean, it is famous- I hear J. Lo shops there, so what do you need normal customers for when you have fancies who will come in and drop a Joe's downpayment on some thongs and a silk robe? Still... it is one of those amazing things to this college girl.

My favorite part, though, is when they change their displays. The current one is really nice- cause they have real clothes mixed in too. It's just all so pretty! I feel really girly saying that... but I think that's probably ok since I am a girl, as it turns out! Anyway- today when I walked back from school everything was the same except ONE item... I like that they change things up, because it's always a fun little odd surprise when I notice the change.

Ok, now you all think I'm a weirdo. Whatever. You'd like it too if it was the only color on a block of bagel shops and laundromats on your way to work.

You are so funny...

Not creepy at all. (Really) Girls are supposed to enjoy lingerie, as are men (ONLY ON THEIR WIVES - of course)

I miss you. ALOT.
