Meeting YEOHLEE

This pass Saturday, I had a great day.

Among all the fantastic things that happened, I meet a clothing designer who I blogged about!

I had made plans to meet a friend at the midtown New York Public Library. On my way there, I walked pass Made in Midtown, the name of a small and welcoming boutique on 25 West 38th St.(Widely known as YEOHLEE). When I walked pass the store on Saturday, I waved to Ito, the sales gentleman and kept walking.

A month ago, on the same date to be exact, I met Ito. He is the sales associate who I met the first time I visited YEOHLEE.  His positive attitude towards the store, was basically the reason why I blogged about it.

As soon as I took a step pass the boutique, a strong desire for me to go back in visit YEOHLEE came over me. I looked at the time and realize I was a little to early anyways so I might as well visit YEOHLEE.

When I went in, I saw another sales associate who I thought might be YEOHLEE but after I introduced myself to her and she to me, I thought, oh, well, she’s not the designer. However, we all started talking about the store and the new clothing on the floor. They showed me a  scarf presented to the buyer as a doggy. It was really creative. There was a piece of fabric at the end of the  body that one suppose to cut off to reveal the scarf. It was a WOW moment for me. I was impressed.

Then Ito showed me some jewelry that was made in California by another artist who follows the same “Eco Fashion” as YEOHLEE. The bracelets and necklaces were made out of recycled bicycled tires. While we were talking, someone walked in and guess what?! It was YEOHLEE!

Ito introduced us and we chatted for a while. I was surprised and honored when YEOHLEE said that she read my blog!

After she left, Ito said to me, that was my Christmas present for you. I had a smile on my face for the rest of the day. I can’t believe that I met YEOHLEE!

My father told me to build up my faith.

I say no matter how much faith you have, God always surprises you a little more.
