Worn on Tuesday 16 Nov 2010
Thoughts: It was definitely a day for learning what things I should never do again:) I will never take photos in the rain without an umbrella again. My hair was soaked and curling within minutes, and my camera was rather waterlogged as well. Next time I’ll cover it with plastic or something, I was terribly afraid for it but it’s perfectly fine, they really do stand up to a bit (or more) of rain. I will also never wear a silk shirt with an elasticized belt again, the belt creeps up within a minute after righting it. And creates odd bunches in the silk. Remember this skirt from one of my Halloween costumes? I will never wear this skirt again either. I wanted to try it out sans costume… and then I discovered it has odd splotches of fading. Oh well, I guess it will go back to the thrift store. I perhaps should have attempted a floor length skirt of a different pattern as well, but it can be terribly cost prohibitive. I don’t like any of the ones at Forever 21 either :(
Eventually the rain chased me back inside. I had to dry my hair again. And my skirt.
But there is one thing I will do again: go get a soy latte from the bike shop. Yes, I said the bike shop. That’s what I did the day I was wearing this. I went everywhere in this tiny town my father lives in (ran out of soy, no espresso…) and was finally directed to the bike shop. For a latte? What? But yes, it’s true, they have the best coffee in town (organic, fair trade, and only $3 for my medium soy latte). But shhh, don’t tell anyone or the yuppies will ruin it!
