to the nines

"people are more violently opposed to fur than leather because it's safer to harass rich women than motorcycle gangs."

the very thought of fur and leather stifles me on a day like today: i spent the whole afternoon, however, trying to find a sweet summery elegant little something to wear to my cousin's wedding in madrid in two weeks time.
why is it that when i don't need new clothes i see something irresistible in every
boutique on the block, but when i DO need them, nothing fits, nothing matches, and the few things that do catch my fancy necessitate new shoes and accessories?
as much as i like shopping, my sensibility prevails. and as much as i want to look good (i'll be seeing my family for the first time in years) i don't want to invest in an
'ensemble' that i will never wear again.
i have another fourteen days, though. i won't give up yet.
and all eyes will be on the beautiful bride anyway.


  1. Nice photo, like the composition especially.

  2. This sounds so familiar, Lynn, I do sympathise. Best of luck with the outfit hunting, and make sure there's a bag for the camera as well.

  3. I love that quote and for some weird reason it's true ... maybe you should dress up in leather for that wedding ;-)

  4. ~I/eye agree, the composition is key here, well done~
