Yes Lady

We checked into the venerable Brown Palace this morning. And here we shall stay until we float home Sunday on a cloud of beer fumes. 1

One of the reasons we like the Brown Palace is that it is similar in tone to The Broadmoor; one is as apt as not to discover dusty cowboy boots kickin it next to causally tossed Louis Vuitton handbags.

Though given the sums for which one can hock a Vuitton, Gucci, or Hermès  — much like you or I 2 might pass over a pink slip to a Payday Loan bandit — maybe there aren’t as many unattended Chanel bags as in past years.

Yes, that’s right – even the 1 Percenters cans find themselves on their uppers, scrounging through their Louis sofas for pocket change. When that occurs the smart lady will grab her bag and head to Yes Lady Finance, who offers a loan within half an hour of up to 50 percent of the new bag’s value. Rates? Four months at 4 percent.

You say you’re not conveniently located in Honk Khong? That’s okay, Yes Lady allows you to upload pictures of the bag and receive a quote online.

Exactly what kind of loose change are we talking about? Yes Lady’s CEO Byron Yiu offers that one client recently brought in a crocodile-skin handbag and received a loan for HK$250,000 ($32,200).

I don’t know about other men but I have on occasion been dragooned into retrieving Nora’s purse from some wedding/shower/reunion/drunken bacchanal table and have accidentally, always temporarily mind, nabbed the wrong one. Leads me to wonder how many times I’ve unknowingly held the equivalent of a woman’s Rolex? 3

  1. It’s an easy walk to the Oktoberfest from here.
  2. Well, you.
  3. Same with women’s shoes: I was appalled when I first discovered some went for thousands of dollars. Really? To what point?

Something to say...?
