Last Saturday, my two closest and oldest friends came into town, and we spent the afternoon shopping and having fun in the Big Apple. Towards the evening, we stumbled into a shop that featured a perfect (and cheap!) replica of the late ’80s Hervé Léger bandage dress. I was hooked!
I brought my usual size back with me to the dressing room, and it didn’t do too much for me. My friend handed her size over the partition, and I’m pretty sure I witnessed a miracle – a size 8 fitting me like a glove! Well of course I bought it, and wore it out that very night. The attention was overwhelming, a woman even stopped me on the street and asked, “How’d you get your figure? Crunches?” I replied, “Oh, I just work for Weight Watchers.”
So maybe the moral of the story is that we all need a little help from our friends. And a fabulous black dress.
