Digression #1 The Red Bracelet, or why I love Oscar
This is a frivolous digression from my writing blog. Oscar de la Renta's facebook page offered bangle bracelets with writing on them, and as a "lover of words," I succumbed to my impulse purchase gene and bought one. The phrase written on a red one was, "I have the memory of a mosquito. Love, Oscar." How could I resist? How did he know he voiced my theme song? The bracelet arrived by Fed Ex, encased in a drawstring bag with three perfume samples included. I was transported to femininity heaven. First rule of retail (not only retail), make the customer feel special.
