Patron of the arts

romeo & juliet ballet - just me

What I Wore to the Ballet: February 17, 2003
Dress: $1 Goodwill, refashioned
Cardigan: Target
Belt: Gift from Sarah
Shoes: Payless
Earrings: Claire’s
Clutch: Gift from my brother and sister-in-law

I’m getting all out of order here. This is what I wore in mid-February to see “Romeo & Juliet” at the ballet, where I insisted on calling myself a “patron of the arts”.

This clutch was a Christmas gift from my brother and sister-in-law. A few days before it arrived I was at Goodwill looking for a top to refashion into a shrug before I went to the Nutcracker (more ballet!) and stopped briefly at the purse section. I listed the criteria of what I was looking for: a clutch that could be dressed up or down, jewel tone, magnetic clasp, single color with some structural detail…

Four days later a box shows up at my doorstep containing this little bag, matching every single bullet point. It was eerie and perfect. I hadn’t mentioned it to anybody and I was alone at the store. Get out of my head!!

    Wow, ask and it shall be given. I wonder what prompted them, if they just “happened” to see the clutch, or what? I love delineating to the Universe and being heard, don’t you?!
