The Wet Look



entire outfit//vintage, dress via Odd Showroom-NH

remember my comment about the failed attempt at making it to the Decatur Arts Festival on Saturday afternoon? Well if not, I didn’t make it. due to R.A.I.N. No more like a torrential downpour. to the max. My mini umbrella was turning inside out, dress flying every which way, families running all over the place seeking shelter, and pretty sure my undergarments were visible. ha! I can laugh about it now but at the time it was awful. I didn’t get to see one piece of art, eat not one funnel cake, or drink one tasty beer.  The only solution to my wet’n’wild outing was turning around and going home, simply too wet to enjoy the day even if it did clear up..really not exaggerating, as soon as I stepped into the open from the parking deck I got dumped on. afterwards settled for a chai tea latte and the internet. eh. 

on a happier note I was awarded a blog award from the lovely Mina via The Fabulous Girl’s Guide to Fashion, thanks!!!

Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link.

    You are too, too sweet! Thank you hippie froufrou! We will post this as soon as we can (we are moving- just down the road- a wee bit closer to downtown Decatur in a week).

    My bf and I got drenched Saturday and ended up scooting into Leon’s (think I mentioned it)- we will have to take you there for a blog meet-up. No funnel cake, but great beer ;)

    I literally loled when I read your blog. It reminds me of a day Jon and I were getting back from grocery shopping, trying desparately to make it up the walk to my apartment without getting thrown against the neighboring buildings because of an awful wind storm.
    You really cannot beat a tasty beer and funnel cake :0) Two of my favorite things in life.
