Rain Rain Go Away
This morning I woke up to the delightful sound of rain falling. Which I would normally embrace. Except, it’s winter. And rain in winter really makes my arthritis flare up. On the bright side? I tend to dress brighter and sparklier when I don’t feel so hot.
That said, I’m completely snubbing my nose at the winter rain today:
Cardigan: Banana Republic, off eBay (tag says it’s from Summer ’04)
Blouse: Banana Republic, sale last spring/summer
Skirt: Nanette Lepore (have had this for ages)
Stockings: Calvin Klein
Shoes: 5-color strass Manolo Blahnik’s I did last weekend
Handbag: Grey Kate Spade Maryann bag
Jewelry: Omega watch, double strand of pearls, and pearl earrings
My necklace & the detail on my cardigan:
And a shot of my shoes, angled so you can see more detail:
We have a local pageant that feeds into Miss America, and I was asked to do sweets & treats for the judges & other officials. Tonight I’ll make French Macarons (mmmmm!!!), last night I started with these, molded chocolates:
I also started the process for double chocolate cake balls, yummy yummy! I’m super excited to be apart of this, I think it’s great when we have events like this where I live. Any excuse for semi-formal (okay, so formal for me) is embraced wholly by me!
Until next time,
