"Certainly Ms Brettkelly. Putting you through now."
"This is Justification Hotline, the shopping desk. Please present your argument."
"Hi, it's Jody here. I've just seen a silk top from my favourite store down the road. It's really pricey. But here's the thing: it may be that final piece of the puzzle that completes my wardrobe."
|The Suno top visiting our backyard|
|Friday night birthday drinks at my friend Sally's house. Miamimice sleeve roll up.|
|Sat morning soccer and the CSL House Tour|
|Sat night dinner at Metro in Lafayette with mullet tuck. (Wish those trousers weren't so crinkly). Top was not even stanky after all this thrashing!|
"Ms Brettkelly, just consulting your file: you've told us before that you don't suit boxy and you find silk too silky."
"Yes, but for some reason, it floats enough to seem non-boxy. And this time I don't mind the silkiness. Plus it's easy to dress up and dress down."
"Well, it sounds like a keeper. I'm putting my stamp on this one. Enjoy. And Ms Brettkelly? A friendly reminder... you've made two calls too many this quarter - I don't expect to hear from you until next quarter."
Silence on the other end. The caller may have been already heading back to the store...
(Have you had occasion to reach for the phone lately? Are you still searching for the final piece of the puzzle?)
