charmed to meet you
did i ever tell you that rbb surprised me with tickets to the indigo girls + atlanta symphony orchestra tickets back in december? it was a fantastic concert! if you don’t know, the indigo girls are local celebs around town and one of them is a part owner of the restaurant watershed. they also happen to be gay (i think they used to date! how awkward would that be post break-up!? they’re too cool though. they wouldn’t let it get to them.) and are very peace, love, harmony. probably err on the side of PETA, let’s say, for argument’s sake. when i got dressed for the concert, i simply thought to myself….what’s a fun outfit i’m loving right now? hmm, maybe this beaded flowy top with skinny white jeans, my sky high loubs (my only pair – they were my wedding shoes) and to cap it off, fur coat perhaps? never mind it was approximately 55 degrees outside, it’s december and i’m going on a date night! hell yes fur coat! we walked into the concert hall and i caught some strange, disapproving glances. i pondered for a minute and then thought DOH!!! INDIGO GIRLS!!! REAL FUR!!! GAH callie, really? nice. but you can’t very well hide a fur coat so i had to rock it. or the fact that you’re super overdressed and blingy in a room full of boyfriend jeans and doc martens.
during the intermission, i texted my friend shannon because i knew she was there too. we made plans to meet up at one of the bars for a quick drink, and she said in her last text, “just look for the girl wearing gold lamé pants! you can’t miss me. only one around.”
and then i knew – we were just meant to be friends.
shannon is one of those girls that you wish lived next door to you so you could raid their closet at any time. that’s what i did before my 1st calliespondence photo shoot! i needed a cute outfit to wear for my website photo, so i bee bopped on over to shannon’s house and she suited me right up with some fab frocks. we also have happened to be pregnant at completely opposite times, so we just swap clothes back and forth. i would say we’ve gotten our money’s worth considering we’ve had 4 babies between us!
the exciting news is that shannon is opening her own online jewelry auction site so everyone can enjoy and purchase the awesome items her keen eye procures! do y’all know how those work? there are directions on the page, but basically if you see something you like, you just comment on the photo with your email address and “sold” and it’s yours. easy peasy! all of the items are super affordable and include free shipping, too. calliespondence was happy to whip up a logo for her…and i’m sure you’ll be charmed to meet her as well!
i’m already so excited for her first auction this sunday 2/24 at 8:30 p.m., i may not be able to sleep between now and then. here’s a sampling of her wares (majorly coveting those leather bracelets):
be sure to “like” charmed jewelry & accessory auction here and don’t miss the 1st auction this coming sunday! she’ll make you closer to fine. oh yes, i just did that.
