I Do So Love the Notice That Only Wearing Creme Cuffs Can Bring
Yesterday after school, I visited the Westfield Mall where I do my 'Body Balance' class , a Wicked Combination of yoga, tai chi & pilates. As I trawled around the shops before the class, I thought I noticed a number of middleagedwomen staring at the Cuffs. I was thrilled.
Then, when I was standing at the sinks in the change room of the gym, another middleagedwoman leaned over to me & said, 'What great bracelets. Are they Ivory?'
'No, they're Plastic. I bought them at 'Diva'.
She sniffed & walked off.
As usual, I'm not quite sure what the point of this story is. Or whether it Needs a Point.
But often, when women admire some item of jewellry that I'm wearing, they'll ask if it's 'Real'. You know, Real Gold, Real Chanel, Real Enormous Pearls.
I have a policy of saying that Everything is Faux. Or Plastic. Or Both.
And the women always walk away Slightly Disappointed.
