What’s on My Vanity
Around this time of year I undergo a purging. It’s a cleansing really of all the accessories, clothes and shoes that I haven’t worn in the past six months. While I was rummaging through my jewelry box, I came across a bold multi stone necklace my husband gave me years ago, that although I haven’t worn in a while, I can’t bear to part with.
As I was handling it I remembered the day my husband brought it home – it was a very sweet and pleasant surprise – and it brought a smile to my face. I also remembered the time I wore it to a conference. A woman I had only interacted with casually online told me, as she sized me up and down with her eyes, that she didn’t expect me to be so…flashy.
Flashy?!? Did she really just say that?! Once the sting of having such a brazen statement slung at me wore off, I realized she was right. I am not conservative. I do not play it safe. And I rarely color inside the lines. Yup. I’m flashy, and I’m a-ok wearing that label.
Over the holidays I watched the movie, Family Stone (I highly recommend it). There’s a scene where the free-spirited brother played by Luke Wilson tells Sara Jessica Parkers very tightly wound character ”you have a freak flag. you just don’t fly it.” Well I say we all possess a touch of flash (whether you enjoy artistic nails, bold jewelry or colorful lips) so this week, let your flashy flag fly!
