SORRY THIS IS LONG>>>>>>> So, I was talking to a "friend" the other day. I've known her for about a year and she is always perfectly put together down to her unmentionables! I'm talking the type of person that looks like she just stepped out of Vogue or Harper's Bazaar and she does this with such little effort. She is single and a VERY successful attorney, and can afford a VERY VERY lavish lifestyle (she did inherit a lot of $$ as well). I'm a stay at home mom with a 3 yr old and I tend not to run around in designer clothes (jeans, cute tee's, cashmere sweaters, etc.are my daily uniform), but I LOVE LOVE LOVE my designer bags (that is where I REALLY splurge). Anyways, I've always admired her sense of style and one thing we both have in common is the love of bags!! I've always loved high end designer bags. And have recently shared my excitement of getting 4 new Balenciaga bags with her. Well, I've told her the other day that I've been in visiting the Hermes board here and mentioned how I'm starting to LUST after a Hermes--and contemplating getting one! Now, I thought she would say, "WOW, I know how much you love mine! I'm so excited for you!!" BUT NO! Instead this is what came out of her mouth, "WHAT??!! You??!! Hmmmm, interesting, I've always thought of Hermes for more fashion forward, classic style people. Not stay at home mom's...but maybe you could pull it off." I SAT THERE WITH THIS FACE: and wanting to do this to her: I honestly didn't know what to say... I had that warm bubbling feeling in me, that I knew I was going to say something that was SO SO wrong that it's best to just move on and pretend to ignore it! So, I politely said, "Well, maybe I could pull off the Mommy Chic" I WANTED to say, "Well you have *****y Chic down to a T, so maybe I can corner Mommy Chic!" It's been a couple days, and I'm ignoring her emails and phone call to get together for a movie.....my question is.......now what?? Do I talk to her about this?? Or just forget it ever happened??? And do I need someone in my life who feels this way about me?? I'm thinking no! Thanks!!
