until she explained that blep-whatever, is actually surgery for the eyes. I tried to talk her out of it and suggested she buy a hat instead, in which she quickly responded with a snort and roll of the eyes.
Well, my friend had the surgery and survived with only a few teeeny, tiny complications; her right eye no longer closes completely shut and a huge bag has suddenly taken up residence under her left eye -- and all for only $5,500.
Now, make no mistake - I could definitely do with an eye job; however - and you can call me crazy here - I have a certain fondness for sleeping with both eyes closed and can summon up a bag or two on my own, thank you very much.
"So what does that have to do with hats?
I'm so glad you asked. Let me demonstrate by telling you a story.
It's 6pm on a Friday night and you've just rushed home to get ready for your first date with Bruce, a new guy you met on the Internet. You only have minutes to get ready and as you enter the bathroom to touch up your make up, you grimly discover that the 3 glasses of wine you slugged down the night before with your girlfriends have come back to haunt you. Good grief - you look terrible; dark bags under your eyes - and your hair - look at your hair! It's greasy and stuck to your head, and there's no time for a shower. What in the world are you going to do?
Enter the hat.
"I don't get it."
Let me explain. You see girls, a hat can become your best friend - and your savior. Whether it be a fabulous fedora, a rhinestone cowgirl hat, or a that magical baseball cap I referred to in my previous post, a hat is what I like to refer to as, Photoshop for the Head.
"Now that's just plain stupid."
You'll see what I'm talking about when we get down and dirty with the secret details in my next post.
Stay tuned - and stay Dazzling!
