Good-Bye Summer. Hello Stress!

Okay, so August is officially over. And despite a fast approaching, fashion filled fall season, the all important sound bite is eluding me. All the cajoling in the world will not release the witty and snappy words from my consciousness and onto the computer screen. My mind is twisting and turning with worst case scenarios as we approach the witching hour. In exactly 3 weeks, our sales professional, Marla, will begin a grueling week where she will meet with store buyers in hopes of having them place orders. What if no one shows up? What if they don't place any orders? What if no one likes any of the dresses? It's like we are caught in a nail-biting episode of Deal or No Deal wondering if we've selected the case with the million dollars in it. Only it's my cocktail dresses that will determine whether or not we can make a deal. I spoke with Marla today to get a handle on how she feels everything is going. And as I suspected, it is difficult to determine right now because many people are still vacationing before the season really starts. So I am just going to have to calm myself by burning incense, meditating, praying, or whatever so that I do not become completely unhinged wreaking havoc on my business partners and on Marla. As I have heard over and over from my angels, "I can only do my best." After that, the universe must handle the rest. So now I am going to do my best to enjoy the last holiday of the summer - Labor Day. Anyone barbecuing?
Peace & Fashion!

    One word: Xanax.

    I've seen your dresses, and they are knock-down drag-out GORGEOUS! The buyers will love them, I promise.

  2. Agree with Hoardmeister, Divo. You and your dresses are fantabulous.
