First and foremost, I would like to apologize to those who may have been offended when I said that the clothes Wilson brought in were "a little gay." I realize it was not very "PC" of me, and I fear I may have given the wrong impression. I could try and do this by sharing about my "girly" moments, but I will resist the urge and keep my comments to this episode. I didn't mean my words to be derogatory, or that I disliked the pieces, but rather I meant that they were a little flamboyant and campy. In fact, I watched this episode with a friend, who happens to be gay, and he agrees with me.
And shouldn't I be a little concerned when he brings in flavorful shirts and mentions consigning leather underwear? When we curate, we have to consider a wide variety of tastes and not just our own. And like I told Bentley, when she began insulting the clothes in the store, "there is something for everyone" and hopefully that will mean the men's section, which is a sad state of affairs. (Oh, and after thinking about it, my brother and his biker friends would probably rock those shirts along with leather underwear!) Wilson is right, I certainly don't know it all, nor do I pretend to. On the contrary my managerial style is one that embraces collaboration and promotes teamwork. And often I have to reel it in, in order to run a tight ship. In fact, it seems as if he is the one that is always quite sure of himself.
And God love the bold and beautiful Bentley. She is a gorgeous, but she should learn to pipe down a little bit. Wasn't Karina awesome? She didn't fan the flames on a confrontational situation. I mean really, we stained her pieces? Come on! We clearly hear it all from our clients, but I certainly wasn't having her diva-tude! And how funny was Karina and that freakin' calculator? When I saw that she was a little rattled I walked over to try and get her back to her comfort zone. With high maintenance and antagonistic clients like Bentley it's often a good idea to not be intimidated and instead go toe-to-toe with them. Like I said, at the end of the day, we are doing them a service!
It was very cool of River to invite us to the annual, Jeffery Fashion Cares Event. We all enjoyed the beautifully sculpted bodies—some more enthusiastically than others, ha, ss we got a sneak peek behind the curtain, and as they walked down the runway in designer's clothes that we barely noticed because their studliness stole our attention.
Alright, gotta go.
Ambria is down stairs picking me up. No NOT in a garbage truck, thank goodness!
