Greek Tragedy: sample sale

My new favorite writer Stephanie Klein explains how love is like a sample sale (trust me, it is...) You just can't force it. Greek Tragedy: sample sale:

"I've been known to do it from time to time: the chick out. It's 'chicking out' because it's usually freaking out about something only a girl would freak over, like a sample sale for the ultimate date outfit so you can snag a great boy, or a boy not calling, or like a boy getting back with his ex. Notice how chicking out involves a boy...

I'm a goal-oriented high-achieving hyphenated type of woman. I was raised on a diet of you can do whatever you set your mind tos, and it has served me well. The suit fits; the diet worked, but the suit is tailored and professional. It has covered buttons and long conservative hemlines. The 'I will make it happen' tude doesn't flow with the ruffles of a social party dress. "
