Turning Embarrassment into Exhilaration – Part 2

Fashion Avenue

Previously, I shared with you my Marilyn Monroe episode in the presence of my new director in Part 1. Part 2 also includes a wardrobe malfunction on my part in busy Manhattan on; you guessed it, Fashion Avenue! There I was, four months pregnant, so proud of myself that I still fit in my size 5/6 clothes. I was wearing a nice two-piece spring outfit that my aunt gave to me as a gift.

I took the shuttle train from Grand Central to Time Square, heading to the office. It was no different than any other morning. I ran up the staircase, holding my breath, trying not to breathe in the odeur de “New York subway station!” (If you’ve ever been in the belly of the beast of the New York subway system, you know what I mean. I can almost smell it now! But I digress.) I ran up the stairs with my pocketbook on one shoulder and my Steven Covey Appointment Planner in the other hand.

Then, to my surprise and embarrassment, the two buttons that was holding up the lovely skirt decided to part ways with the skirt. Next thing I know, my skirt was falling down to my ankles. I throw away the planner and grabbed for said skirt to hide my panty-hosed derriere! This couldn’t have happened at the worst time at the top of rush hour with thousands of people going by! I was mortified.

A man was opening his boutique and saw my dilemma. He rushed over to me and told me to get into the store. My pregnancy hormones went into overdrive and I busted out crying. The poor man did all he could to calm me down. Once I regained my composure I explained to him why my buttons flew off. I was still trying to wear my regular outfits because I didn’t like the ugly pregnancy clothes. He smiled at me and told me I can buy two outfits and 50% off each. I was so happy when I left his store I had my dignity firmly in tact again.

When I got to the office, my manager was waiting for me with a worried look on her face. She knew I was never late.  I told her the whole story and of course she laughed so hard tears ran down her face. I know. I know. It could only happen to me! I did get two great outfits out of the ordeal, turning another embarrassment into exhilaration.
