Glamour

Glamour

I once visited Chicago. It was a pretty special trip. Sort of those once in a lifetime things. I packed carefully… fancy dresses, high heels, and an expensive pair of sunglasses. I only packed one pair of blue jeans for that trip because I knew I wouldn’t be needing comfortable clothes. I was going on a trip I knew I would never forget… a trip that was all about glamour and a world outside my own.

I remember finding out that if you slip the host extra money, you don’t have to have reservations… even if the restaurant claims that you do. I remember learning that if you have a special key in the right hotel… there are secret upper floors that take you to the penthouse. And that they hold parties up there sometimes for VIPs. I remember the food… little shrimps in martini glasses, olives settled upon squares of cheeses I didn’t know the names of, caviar and patte with fancy crackers, fine wines and champagne.

I wore a black dress of course, with the back cut out. And I was probably the only woman there wearing black lipstick. I was easily the youngest woman there among the crowd. It was a host of executives and their dates, and I stood out with my long hair in curls piled up on my head and my tattoos and my fancy sunglasses. I’ll never forget the couple who came up to me and my date and began chatting as if we were all old friends and asked me what I did. And my date told her I was a writer. It was mostly true.

These free gifts on Astrid remind me of that glamorous night… one I’ll never forget. Glittering and golden and filled with dreams. A night to be savored like the wine that I sipped from a crystal glass with my date that night.
