  • Upon reaching my apartment, however, I found a sleek Upper East Side blond staring back at me in the bathroom mirror. The panic had been a false one; Zoe's wigs were way too good to look fake. I got a beer from the fridge and started pacing, trying to relax into my new hair. But pacing and beer didn't feel right either. I looked in the mirror again. Before me stood a pampered platinum princess clutching a Budweiser next to a stack of dirty clothes. My brain flashed the system error message. Women—like me?—with hair like this do not drink domestic beer from a can in Chinatown apartments. They drink kir royales at Le Bilboquet.

After pouring the rest of my beer down the drain, I changed into jeans, spiky heels, and a beige silk top with gold chains for straps. With my customary brown hair, the outfit might have looked cheerful and celebratory. On a blond, it screamed mail-order bride. What the hell? I winced in the mirror, and then I went to dinner.
