I recently ate a lobster tail.  My fav.  So decadent!  Yet, it was take out- and in a styrofoam box.  Hahaha, somehow NOT the same experience.

Which brought me to a funny comparison….  
Presentations really are everything- We can be an amazing lobster with drawn butter on the inside but if we are packaged in a nondescript styrofoam beauty, we lose our luster and no one will know our true potential…


I was talking with my sister the other night about a girls closet.  You know how we all have a bunch of hottie patottie shoes gathering dust on the shelves.  Maybe it’s just my closet, but I have all these really great shoes.  (My feet have not grown since I was 9 and I have basically saved every pair since then, so I have quite the collection.).  But ask anyone I know…I wear Uggs or moccasins everyday of my life.

As with the china that I’ve been saving for a special occasion, I’m bringing out the loud shoes and dressy clothes.  Heck, I’m throwin the diamond and gold plated bras and panties into the mix too (PS- I’m kidding…)!  My mom always says… wear matching pretty bras and panties, cause you never know if they’ll need to cut off your clothes in front of a crowd, if you ever get in an accident (Like I’d care in the moment)…(Actually I DID care in the moment….another story…remind me to tell you the ‘perfect chicken story’).

So, I did it….

I rocked a hottie outfit and shoes and scandalous underwear and went to CVS!  It really is amazing how it changes your whole attitude.  Why has this stuff been sitting sad and untouched in my closet.  Had I known that you don’t need an excuse to dress up or how good it makes you feel, I would have done this earlier!

Not to be a downer….but, back to my friend who passed away with all the clothes (if you need to refresh your memory:)  When we were packing up her stuff, we found that the majority of her clothes still had tags attached!  Many of the shoes had never been worn!!  Why do we pay the most money for the things we wear the least.  I’m switchin it up folks.  The more mundane the event- the swankier the flippin outfit!

And while I’m at it, I’m throwing some of my ‘styrofoam box’ clothes away.  If they are there I will wear them!  I’m worth more than my styrofoam uniform I inherited when the kids popped out.

New lavish day y’all…New lavish day.

  1. LOVE IT!!!

    I keep my leopard platform pumps, my chocolate spiked Gene Simmons boots and all my other glamour shoes displayed in a glass book case in our hallway. (Too gorgeous to keep in a closet and our books are ugly!)

    When it's time to cook dinner, I choose the pair that fits my mood, pump up the music and dance while I cook! It's my favorite part of the day!
    (My 2 teens laugh at me, the 2 younger join me!)

    All my party shoes get plenty of wear, but never outside the apartment.

    …you inspire me, maybe today is the day…

    Look out "Shop Smart", here I come!


    (loved the twins story!)

  2. I was actually thinking about this the other day, how things have changed,we don't seem to care about our appearance out in public anymore. It's fun to dress up even if it's for no particular reason.

  3. I went back and read the blog page you referenced and I'm so glad I did. What a vivid & beautiful piece of writing. Any thoughts of a book?–Connie

  4. Connie- Cracked up at your response!! What a fun idea!!! Girl! Rock those leopard platforms out! No one needs to know you're not on your way to something amazing! People will be envious of what they are missing out on!!

    and thoughts on a book- I don't know what it would be about. I'm pretty random:) Maybe "Crazy Crap that Happens to a Random"? hahahah
