Many ladies have a touch of obsessive compulsiveness when it comes to checking for food in their teeth or how their makeup looks. I only worry about food in my teeth, because I am not much of a makeup wearer. Face it, the guy you are out with, no matter how great, many times ‘forgets’ to tell you a piece of arugula from your salad is parked in between your two front teeth when you are out to dinner with, I don’t know, your boss. There is never a great way to check, unless going to the bathroom. But by the time you have excused yourself and smiled from ear to ear to excuse yourself, everyone at the table has seen this piece of food. This is why so many ladies carry mirror. Many Leiber bags come with mirrors, along with many evening bags, but if yours does not you must always carry a mirror with you. And when you are dressed to the nines head to toe, do not carry a little plastic mirror with you. Try to add a stunning elegant mirror, like the Leiber Crystal-Detailed Compact Mirror, so when anyone sees you using it they are distracted by its beauty. This mirror is available in clear or ruby Austrian crystals which are adorned on a silver-tone case. Buy through Saks for $475.
