my Cordovan Sanity: a Ribby Cardi
RUN FOR COVER! IT’s the last day of November! I’m duckin’ my bucket covered head to avoid that CHRISTMAS RUSH BULLET!
Everywhere I go, to and from work, through the Miracle Mile of North Michigan Ave. are reminders of the SEASON: shoppers…
Starting with the Festival of Lights a couple of weekends ago, where 1.5 MILLION people witnessed Santa coming to Chitown, and continuing with the Day After shopping carnival, I’ve been a hoola-hoop around shoppers and tourists. Watch me work a crowd! Whether I’m on the #66 (which goes straight thru Shopping Central by Water Tower AND the American Girl Store) or working the local Home Depot doing a “How to Buy a Christmas Tree” story, I’m a circulating and percolating through the masses. (BTW, the HDespot had some really FINE and cheap Xmas trees – the smell alone is worth the price of admission.)
I’ve bought nothing, nada, nyet.
I actually went into the local Walgreen’s with a coupon for an $.89 Revlon lipstick in my hot little hand (truly needed a *Wine with Everything* to start my Holiday right!), but was CRUSHED to crumbs when they told me it was a 3-hour coupon and I’d missed by 15 minutes. AH the cruelty of the Season…
Second best cruelty – the company Christmas Party – to go or not to go?! We are having a rather swank soiree in a glamorous hotel. BUT, it is on a Friday night. AND, I’m usually in a parka and BOOTS! (How the heck am I gonna find time to duck into a phone booth and presto changeOH!)
And so it begins!
The Holiday Fantasy Garment!~
What kind of fun would I be having if I didn’t have NEW CLOTHES for Christmas!
Corner #1: Parka, boots and thick wool socks.
Sheer, modern and a little naughty…
Out of this:
OOOOHHH it’s madness, I tell you… $.89 Lipstick paired with $500.00 shoes!!!
