We went from 90 degrees F. and sunny, to dark skies and tornado watches in the space of an hour. We're still under the watch all evening, but so far everything has been calm, if a bit dark. This has been the strangest spring I can remember. I expect a bit of up and down through April and May, but this has been abnormally cold, and when it does rain, we get enough for flooding. If I believed in Divine retribution, I'd think some deity had it in for Nebraska.
I'm wearing, "Things I forgot I own." I think the dress made an appearance on the blog once, but the shoes have been languishing in a box since the 90's, and the small handbag was a gift years ago from an elderly neighbour who was happy to have a young person willing to take her old items. She didn't have children, which made finding a good home for her handbags and hats a challenge. She's been gone a very long time now, but I'm glad I am able to remember her each time I reach for one of her pretty handbags. This one doesn't get much wear as it is so very small.
I like the strap at the back for holding the bag, though it takes a bit of getting used to.
After wearing the shoes a bit I remembered why they were packed away-my feet slide forward in them. That's easy enough to fix, so later this week I'll stop by the cobbler's shop and have him glue in some inserts at the front. The shoes are otherwise comfortable, and now that I've waited long enough, fashionable again. Win!
Dress-Can't remember, probably Goodwill
Shoes-Not positive, probably Jordan Marsh when I worked there
Silver bracelets-errrr, maybe Filene's? (I wasn't kidding when I said these items don't get much wear)
Lippy-Elf lipstain in red layered with some cheap gloss (Wet and Wild, I think). Better than expected results.
I just looked at the forecast for the next week-looks like we're in for rain each day. Perhaps I can do a feature on raincoats and umbrellas.
That's not that bad of an idea, now that I think about it.
Hang in there-tomorrow is Friday (and in some places, it already is).
