It was nice being out for a bit of a fun. As much as Vivian enjoyed all the work she was doing for the diner, it was still nice to get out and do a bit of window shopping. Well her main plan was to do a bit of window shopping. But there was always a chance that something might catch her eye. Every good boss needed to award themselves sometime, right? Well that was her story and she was sticking to it. Which was precisely why she did not bring any of her siblings shopping with her. One, for the pure fact that she was pretty sure that James Jr. and Colin were not going to be at all interested in visiting little shops in downtown. At least the places that she had all intentions of visiting. Two, she was pretty sure Gemma might end up wandering off in some random direction and she would spend the rest of the day worrying about her little sister. As much as her family meant to her, a little bit of a break was pretty much needed. She was not a neglectful business woman after all! Today, she found herself wandering the streets glances in a few of little shops that she had passed on by. So far nothing had caught her eye. About halfway through her trip, she grabbed a quick bite to eat at a little cafe. She was pleased with the service, though nothing compared to the service of Avery's diner. With the meal complete, she made her way back onto the streets.
Vivian dug out her phone from her pocket as she heard the pleasant little chime of receiving a text message. A bright smile lingered as it was from one of her old college mates who was just dropping a hello and wanting to know how things were going. She moved a bit closer to one of the buildings, so she was not in the way of anyone passing by. Last thing she wanted to do right now was having to talk someone down from a silly argument over something so simple as she was paying more attention to her cellphone then where she was walking. It also saved her from a bit of an embarrassment herself. This bit of texting went on for a little bit with a lot of teasing from her about how she did not understand how anyone could handle going to law school without going utterly mad. With all joking aside, she made plans to call her friend later on once she was done with her bit of shopping. She glanced up briefly to the sky, watching some birds fly by. It almost made her want to sneak off so she could shift and do a bit of flying herself. But she had other plans, as she looked back to the road and eventually into the window of the shop she stood by. Her eyes lit up just a bit as she noticed the most amazing pair of shoes that she just had to have!
”Those are the most amazing shoes I have ever seen.” Vivian muttered under her breath as she leaned in close enough to the glass window but not actually touching it. The shoes that had caught her attention were a pair of light blue pumps that had a ribbon that would wrap around to hold them on one's feet with what looked like pearls sewed onto the bit of ribbon. They were so simple, yet completely amazing to her. She was easily fascinated by things that caught her attention. She knew right then and there, she was going to have those shoes. And no one was going to stand in her way! She took quick steps to the front door happy to know that the shop was open. Without any hesitation she walked inside, almost startled by the little bell that announced her entering the shop. As she looked into the shop, there were other things that had caught her attention from a couple of flowing scarves and other hair accessories. “I do not think I am leaving this shop with just one thing.” She spoke to herself but it was loud enough for anyone near by to hear.
