Saks was packed to an inch of its life and it was actually a bit difficult to move around. There were tons of food stations from various restaurants, which I did not get to sample. Poor, poor me. Taking pictures and talking to people usually leaves me very little time to eat, plus I don't want to stand around with a possible piece of spinach in my teeth!
There were no decorated bras this year, nor models parading around half naked, but this year they had keys to various prizes, of which there were tons! They said you had an 80% chance of winning if you purchased a key. That sounds like pretty good odds! Prizes were valued from $20 to $3500.
There were photos being taken, which you could buy, glitter tattoos you could have applied, among other fun things, but it looked like the main thing to do was to just catch up with everyone after the long summer break. And of course, raise money for a good cause - breast cancer prevention and treatment!
