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.

UglywalletThen, 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.
