She bought a $12,000 crystal-studded silver lace halter gown with a ruffled tulle skirt that she will wear Friday to the opening night of the San Francisco Opera.

I would have worn something similar if I was going to opening night. Alas, I’m not going. So no $12,000 crystal-studded silver lace halter gown for me. (I’m sure you are all quite relieved!)

Just how long would it take me to earn $12,000, I wonder.

Still, as I ponder this, I’m thankful for the rich & famous. And I’m not being sarcastic. They are the ones who support the arts with the big bucks. We need them. So if she wants to wear this gown, I say, “Go for it!”

If she also wants to buy me a few reeds I woulnd’t deny her that opportunity. 😉

    Just imagine how many reeds you could buy for $12,000!

  2. Oooh, yes!! If only I could find reeds to purchase that would work for me! (I make my own, even though I hate it.)
