Tales from the homefront...
Sometimes things happen that make you wonder if you've lost your diva-ness.
As pledged on this very blog, I bought a new bracelet to spice up a holiday cocktail dress I already had in my closet instead of buying a whole new dress. I spent $15 on a glam beauty at Target, this beaded elastic number with a cool broach-looking jeweled flower on it.
Or at least I thought it was cool.
I did get some compliments at a holiday party. But then a male colleague -- you know who you are! -- asked me if I was going to prom. Ugh. I hadn't considered the corsage factor. Whatevs. I still like my bracelet. I think.
Then, last weekend, I spent a good 20 minutes in Macy's debating which bright-colored snakeskin wallet I should buy one of my younger sisters for Christmas. There were tons of colors, but none of the ones I really wanted (green or blue, maybe purple).
I settled on a bubble-gum pink one, then fretted over which size. I was psyched to get an unexpected discount. But by the time I reached my car, I was doubting the color choice. It seemed tacky. A call to another sister confirmed my fear.
So I brought it back the next day. The saleswoman asked if anything was wrong with it. It's the wrong color, I said.
She looked inside the box.
"Whoa, that IS the wrong color," she said.
Ouch! Now I'm doubting my diva-hood AND still looking for a dang wallet.
