      Today I delivered chocolates for a trunk show in Wailea. The clothing designer, Lisa Letarte Cabrinha, makes high end bathing suits, cover ups and other resort wear. She greeted me with a smile and a hug and then said the words I dreaded “Oh, let’s get you in a dressing room”

      NOOOOO!! Not a bathing suit!!!!

      I made some lame excuse about having to get back up the hill, left the chocolates with her and bolted for the door.  

      Then I started thinking. Maybe just maybe some day I could lose enough weight to actually buy something from this really wonderful and talented designer. Her customer list reads like a who’s who - Beyonce Knowles, Cindy Crawford, Paris Hilton, Cameron Diaz wore one of her suits in the movie “Charlie’s Angels“, she does the swimsuits for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.  

      So I have renewed motivation. Maybe not too realistic but a girl can dream. In the meantime, her clients are enjoying my chocolates.
