Contrived Sloppiness and Little Blue Boxes

This morning I over slept, and woke up in a zombie like state (many nights I suffer from a combination of muscle spasms from a shoulder surgery I had a few years ago and insomnia – last night was one such night). On days that I over sleep I usually find a way to put myself together as quickly as possible, and often opt to endorse a sense of contrived sloppiness. The hair, though disheveled is neatly pulled from my face, simple blue jeans, a beautiful Lilly Pulitzer shirt, un-tucked, and slightly wrinkled, and simple flats. I decided to wear “no-makeup” and simply smeared a little bit of tinted moisturizer and concealer across my face, as I said, no makeup. Haha. In order to tie it all together I hastily selected a pair of earrings from Tiffany & Co. my brother and sister-in-law gave me a few years ago for my birthday. I took one quick look in the mirror to approve of my contrived sloppiness, and whistled to Milly to get up from her bed and together we happily walked to the kitchen for our breakfast.

I got a few compliments on the earrings today, and was thrilled. I love wearing them, even though they clearly scream Tiffany & Co., they are the classic silver open hearts. Despite the commercialization of Tiffany’s, and the huge amount of reproductions and counterfeit products out there, there is nothing like being presented with that little robin’s egg blue box, so neatly tied with the satin ribbon.

So why not be a bit over the top and entirely too indulgent for this economy, and share this blue box with your dog on a daily basis! This “Sniffany & Co.” dog bed will keep you smiling, have guests laughing, and is soft enough to have your pooch snoring in no time. You could even consider pairing it with a diamond chew toy! Or, perhaps your pooch would like a nice “Hairy Winston”??
