Rain on my parade


I am starting to think that everyone by now might assume that I must have packed my bags and left to London in search of fame and fortune. I can assure you that despite the gloomy and rainy weather that is typically part of my posts, I am still very much settled in DC. I have never seen this much incessant rain in my life in such short period of time, and please note that I am from a tropical country that consists of two seasons: rainy and sunny. I know I shouldn't be complaining too much because the alternative (aka snow) would definitely ruin my mood.
But today, it literally rained on my parade. I had spent a good 25 minutes last night planning how to wear these gorgeous leather gloves I got for a steal at Filene's (which in case you didn't know it, they are closing down so if you have one nearby, make sure to head over). Not to mention, I spent another 20 doing my hair, therefore a whole hour had been sort of invested in this outfit. So when the frizz-fest going on outside ruined the look you can imagine my "fascination." I am not one to let the rain get in the way of my plans, coming from a tropical country and all, but let's just say, the result of today's post could have been ten times better. So if you digg it, imagine how much you would digg it then. In any case, hope you enjoy it and if any of you DC natives is doing some sort of rain dance, you can stop now... We've had enough!!!!!
