Years ago, a bashful young man knocked on the door of the house belonging to his prom date. Perhaps it was the few minutes delay? Or, maybe his tie was too tight? For whatever reason, the boy fumbled miserably attempting to place the corsage around his date's wrist.
Years had passed and they got married. The man would one day admit to his wife the true nature of his error. "You took my breath away when you opened the door; I felt helpless.”
“But you know what?,” he teased. “You continue to take my breath away after all these years." In his right hand was a sparkling Christopher Designs bracelet. "If you will be so kind to allow me a chance to redeem myself," he said… as he flawlessly placed the bracelet on her wrist.
Christopher Designs is available in Shreve & Co. at Post Street, San Francisco, the Stanford Shopping Center in Palo Alto, California, and on SW Broadway in Portland, Oregon.
