Hey Kid: Tiffany Blue

I'm not a big jewelry girl.  I have a few classic, beautiful pieces that I wear on a regular basis, but I'm not obsessed.  Having said that, I have to admit there's nothing quite like the sight a box in Tiffany Blue.  It's every woman's favorite color.  (Even if they don't admit it.)  Tiffany and Co. has learned the marketing and branding lesson very well.  When you see that iconic color, you know it's going to be great. One of my favorite memories was taking Sierra into Tiffany's in New York City when we traveled there on a class trip when she was in high school.   It was her (and my) first time in the store and we both found it magical.  At that location, there are several different floors and I have to admit it is a bit overwhelming.  We wandered around and dreamed and drooled.  It is my fondest memory from the entire trip.  She still has the bracelet we purchased.

If you're a girl, I hope you learn early the significance of this gift.  If you're a boy... you might as well learn it early too because it will come in handy one day.

As Holly Golightly would say, "You could always tell what kind of a person a man thinks you are by the earrings he gives you."
