What She Wore: White t-shirt, white pajama pants with red hearts, white socks.
On Friday I was attending a convention at one of the hotels in downtown Little Rock. I was heading for the front desk because I needed some change for the parking meter when I noticed three teenage girls walking through the lobby. They were laughing and giggling loudly, so they easily drew attention. Also, I work with teenagers, so teenagers tend to catch my attention anyway.
And here’s the part where I have to explain what beeotch radar is. This is the uncanny ability to dissect a person’s outfit in under thirty seconds. My retail bosses used to love me for this because I could always identify the woman who would drop a lot money. Usually, it’s an understated, but expensive handbag that tips you off.
Back to the lobby. I’m starting to wonder why three teenage girls aren’t in school when my beeotch radar starts going off. Wait a second–these girls are wearing some expensive clothes. Is that a Louis Vuitton handbag she’s carrying? Are those leopard print Uggs? Holy crap.
Then I notice that the girls are being followed by a burly black man carrying a Louis Vuitton duffle bag. I realize that I am, in fact, looking at none other than the Cheetah Girls! If you have no idea who they are then you’re probably over the age of eighteen and don’t have any kids. The Cheetah Girls have several songs out on Radio Disney and have had two movies on the Disney Channel.
I didn’t say a word to the Cheetah Girls–I was completely dumbfounded because I have NEVER seen a famous person before–NEVER! Having lived in New Orleans, everyone I know has accidentally run into Lenny Kravitz or something, but not me! So, I had my first-ever celebrity spotting. Woo hoo!
