There are three things I wanted to do this month:
1. Win a part in a Shakespeare play (all parts went to students instead);
2. Audition for a local musical (audition day was not well publicized; only insiders knew when and where to sing);
3. Purchase one of J Crew’s vintage flower pins that they’ve been touting in their catalogues. Surely that was something I could do!
Having looked at J Crew’s Website numerous times for the flowers this week, I called customer service tonight only to learn that the pins had sold out immediately and would not be reordered.
It just might be true that bad things (and of course I use the term loosely) happen in threes.
But: the lovely customer service woman at J Crew was kind enough to give me the URL to the flower manufacturer’s online boutique.
I don’t want anything vaguely corsage-y; it’s an oversized flower that I’m looking for in a riotous color.
And you know, as things in nature don’t occur in even numbers (something I learned in fashion illustration class), I just might order three.
