Have a Romy and Michele... or KitschenSink... day!

I dream every day from the moment I wake up to the moment I fall asleep about having my own shop.  Have you seen Romy and Michele's High School Reunion?

I love that story.  The theme is mainly about friendship but I think there's another lesson in there too.  Throughout the story the cool kids bully Romy and Michele because they design and make their own outrageous clothing based on Cyndi Lauper and Madonna (circa Like a Virgin).  Ten years on, they have an opportunity to set up a shop selling their designs and it looks so much fun!

In the words of Romy "To give someone... the chance to express herself... we couldn've really changed her life".  Ok maybe that's pushing it, but folding scarves with a pal in your own little empire looks like the sorta thing I wanna do!

Maybe one day?
