Well, actually, I picked up Lucky from my coffee table, where it has been sitting for a few weeks, and began to page through.
But I kept coming back to the cover, and the beautiful photo of Keri Russell in what looked to be a stunning dress. I adore silver, and silver plus tasteful beading or sequins is a win-win combination.
Upon closer reading, I learned that the dress was from Banana Republic, and that even Ms. R. was pleasantly delighted when she learned it was under $300.
So off I went to the Internet for some research. But—oh dear—my hopes were dashed when I saw the dress on the BR model. I didn’t like the darker outline of sequins on the bodice, nor did I think the fit or length were flattering. I guess that’s where the extra hundred or so dollars comes in—one must hire a tailor for adjustments.
But truly, I’m always pleased when my yearning is thwarted so early. Now I can enjoy and appreciate this pretty picture from a happy distance. And that’s good luck indeed.
