Sorry I couldn't post the picture. She wasn't pleased the camera found her I think...

Ann Romney’s time at Fiandaca gives a new meaning to ‘secret service’

Yes, that was First Lady hopeful Ann Romney on Worth Avenue Saturday, looking very Palm Beach-y in her hot pink tunic and jeans with her shoulder-length blond hair. The only thing missing was the Helga Wagner necklace.

Mitt’s missus spent four hours with Alfred Fiandaca, her old pal from Boston who closed the store for her so she could shop in peace without any worries about paparazzi grabbing a shot of her in the fitting room. Trying on a little something to wear to tonight’s big dinner at Darlene and Jerry Jordan’s house, perhaps? When they’re paying 50k a couple, a lady wants to look good.

The private shopping went well for the wife of the presumptive candidate — c’mon, like that’s not a given by now — but for the customers who had “Stop by Alfred’s” at the top of their Saturday to-do list, well, not so much. They had to wait. Some did, patiently and quietly. Others did, not so patiently and not so quietly.

Finally, Ann strolled out, shopping bags in hand, smiled at the small crowd gathered on the sidewalk, climbed into the big black car waiting at the curb, and drove off.

the Rodeo Drive of Palm Beach?

(Just seeking a little context)

4. It is exactly that. Lemme tell you however, at end of season (now, pretty much) the sales are

wonderful. God forbid you are seen in a gown or luncheon outfit next season that you wore this season, the "Second-Hand Rose" shops are doing a fab business. I actually (many years ago) bought a Chanel suit in a shop like this and still have that suit. I still paid too much for it but it was worth it to me when I was still working..

3. Her life experiences are something we could never hope for

But I guess her actually shopping for herself must make her feel like one of us.

Whatever.

8. Thanks for posting the photo. Fiandaca can be seen to the left, a very nice man. His

store is beautiful and has such lovely garments. When I worked at the magazine he was always so generous with letting us borrow many of his items for the photo shoots.
