"No." (posted by Ann)
So I went to Macy’s last week and spent three hours with a personal shopper, Brenda, which turns out to be a really good way to spend any excess funds that you might have lying around. She had me try on lots of things I would have never even looked at twice, and some were terrible but some were really, really good. I bought a blue dress that is the most insanely flattering thing I’ve ever owned, and a black knit skirt that actually looks good on me, and lots more.
One of the things I got was a DKNY Cozy in fuchsia (I was channeling 3rd Sister). Brenda showed me a couple of ways to wear it, but I went here and found lots of different options. I was going to wear it for the first time on my flight to Madrid, since I’m always freezing on flights, and was in the bedroom trying various styles to see what worked.
Well. Suffice it to say that I am not 6 foot tall like the model, I am not anorexic like the model, and so things look a wee bit different on me. I was trying to do Look #4 and had just started to play with it when Don walked in the room, saying as he came in “What time do we need to . . . “. He looked at me, there was a one second pause, and he said “No.” Another one second pause, and he tried to go on with his original sentence.
I wound up laughing so hard I had tears rolling down my cheeks. Poor Don kept trying to recover, saying “I like it the other way” or “It’s really not that bad”, but every time he said something it set me off again.
You always know where he stands, that's for sure!
