Fitting expression

We recently moved and I had a HUGE sale. Again and again I heard, "oh this is so me!" or "I've wanted this for so long!" I love it. I love hearing people happy with what they purchased. I gotta say it brings me back; back when I started. I wanted clip on earrings. Anyone could pierce their ears in numerous places, and did so. I wanted what no one else was wearing, clip on earrings. I wanted to stump the guys I was dating. "You got me earrings huh? Too bad I don't have pierced ears." Problem was I couldn't find style I liked.

I was mean like that Though honestly it was funny how many guys didn't pay attention and got me what they thought I would love. So many "You don't have pierced ears?!? You work in the fashion industry how can you not?" or "Didn't you model?" Like all models pierce their ears as a stamp of confirmation.

No we do not need to have pierced ears to model, or sew clothes, or schedule runway shows. Nor do we need them to love jewelry.  I still have some of those earrings too. I still wear them, as I converted them to clip on and still wear them. I didn't keep the guys though... It was sad to watch. Back then I went to private stores, I went to designers,  couldn't find clip ons or place willing to convert them for me.  One place I will not name, would change it but charge me $45. for the privilege of wearing what I would be willing to buy for $125.00!

The fact is everyone is different and you shouldn't pay extra for it. You have a style all your own and the people who are closest to you should know it. Maybe you hate clasps on bracelets, you want toggle clasps. You hate being choked by short necklaces and want them to fall a little lower.

Fitting is actually a huge part of my business. I feel you cannot express yourself unless you are actually wearing the item. Simply having it is not the point. I can get models to wear it, they are pai to. If you are uying from em it's yours and should fit you, not what I want.
