Ann Romney has designer store close for four hours so she can shop privately [View all]


Ann Romney’s Private Shopping Struggles

I cannot imagine the pressures political candidates and their families endure during a campaign, and I despise the fact that many news outlets exploit candidates’ families, even children. So I sympathize with Ann Romney’s preference to shop privately at the posh Fiandaca store in Worth Avenue, Palm Beach, which was closed for her shopping needs for four hours last Saturday.

Certainly it helps to be friends with the designer-owner Alfred Fiandaca, and I would have done the same thing if one of my friends were a possible first lady candidate. He just wanted his dear friend to shop in peace, without those pesky interruptions from the onlookers.

Of course I am sure the other customers who had to wait patiently –and some not so patiently- outside of the store- for four hours that Saturday, did not mind. After all, it is the Worth Avenue and one must know their worth to be able to shop there.


This surely is in stark contrast with the image of “everyday folks” Romney campaign is trying very hard to convey about Romneys. Mrs. Romney looked nothing like a “struggling homemaker” while privately shopping in that exclusive store where the prices start as little as a weekly salary of a middle class working woman.
