So in walks one of our favorite customers with a fabulous new do! Wow, we said, doesn't your hair look great. She replied delightfully, I just had the "Brazilian Keratin Treatment" at Manuel Hair Salon in Georgetown. click here "I can't believe how much I love this, my hair is now straightened for the next few months". According to our lady, her hair is wild, crazy, frizzy and makes her life miserable on a regular basis. She just could not say enough about how great the process was and how much she loved what Manuel had done for her hair. We do have to admit that she truly looked amazing as well as sporting a very healthy head of hair.
My daughter and I went to Morton's in Vienna last night for a delicious dinner. An ice cold martini with olives followed by scallops, spinach, mushrooms, and asparagus and to top it all off we enjoyed a melty chocolate cake. As always, it was disappointing to see how many people just don't seem to enjoy putting on something attractive when they go out. Many people were paraded by our table on their way to be seated and it was sad to see so many hoodies, polo shirts, sack dresses, boring tee shirts and dumpy jeans. Why? Why? Why? I think that fashion is a bit on the fun side and that there is pleasure in putting together an outfit when I go someplace special. I realize it takes some effort to get dressed nicely but it doesn't take that much to make yourself look sharp, does it?
I just love summer this year as it has been soooo lovely with low humidity and all around fab weather. I also love the summer time because it is so easy to get dressed. Light, bright, easy colors in feather weight fabrics are all around. Jeans and cute tee shirt with some strappy sandals with sea shells on them. A striped halter dress with some fun wedges. Bright color earrings with my hair plopped up on top of my head. Always carrying a sweater because it is so cold when ever I go inside a building. Sheesh, the a/c is blowing like mad all the time and I wonder why people like it so very cold, winter is bad enough without making it cold even in the summer for crying out loud. I really enjoy dressing people for all sorts of summer events too; Picnics, graduations, family reunions, dog fights, weddings, special dinners with that certain someone, drinks with friends, etc. Mmm, Popsicles, fresh fruit galore, watermelon, tomatoes, iced lemonade, barbecue (and the delight of watching lightening bugs glisten in the dark), ice cream cones, seafood, staying out late after dark, gossiping with friends, skinny dipping (where is that happening?), going to the beach, gazpacho, big designer shades. Oh, I could go on and on and luckily summer has only just begun...(no matter that malls dump all their summer clothing one week into the program) there are still quite a few delightful hot summer weeks, days and nights still to welcome. My favorite thing of all is to dine al fresco.
