Nefertiti vs. Norskiheifer

There's no contest!

Once in a while I receive a clothing catalog that is so completely NOT my style. The latest contains striking, beaded, sequined and ruffled fashions modeled by gorgeous women of color. If I tried to wear any of them I'd be laughed out of town. As the title of this post infers, I'm a large lady of Norwegian descent, so I pale in comparison to these women.

Still, these catalogs tickle my fantasy of flamboyance. I imagine myself sweeping into a glamorous crowd decked out in four inch heels with ankle straps, wearing layers of diaphanous, brightly hued fabric and feathers fit for a goddess. But then reality sets in -- Queen Latifa, I ain't.
