*Note-I have no idea why all the photos look elongated, but eh, whatever-I like Modigliani. You'd think all that elongation would make me look thinner, but alas, no.
Army green really isn't my colour, so I guess I'd better forget enlisting (can't march worth shit or follow orders either) until they come up with snazzier uniforms (I could do alright in the Navy, so long as I never had to leave land).
The outfit is unimportant though, compared to this beautiful Lady Jade Designs of Montana handbag. The photo doesn't show it well, but the handle is beaded on wire, and the tapestry design is also outlined in seed beads. This isn't a handbag, it is a work of art. The bags sell for hundreds of dollars (understandably) but I was lucky enough to find mine at Goodwill for $3.99 I rarely use it as I'm terrified of damaging it. When the rain started today, I ran as fast as I could, not to keep myself dry, but to protect my precious bag! Frankly, I had no idea I could still run that fast-guess all it took was the right motivation.
Even the bottom of the bag is beautiful.

Fragrance-Creed Spring Flower (Oh dear God in heaven this is the stinkiest thing I've ever worn. It smells like bathroom deodouriser...and the piss and shit it is trying to disguise! I try to give new perfumes an honest chance, but it took EVERYTHING to keep from scrubbing it off. Mercifully, the longevity is short. pretty bottle though. I've got two letters to sum this one up...P&U!)
No, I haven't shat myself. This is expensive perfume. People pay good money to smell this way. Usually, I can't smell jasmine but unfortunately, this had to be the exception.
I hope you have a better smelling start to your weekend than I am!
