fascinating

Due to the massive rain and some flooding in Chicago (thanks, Ike, you bastard), yesterday's trek to the Renegade Craft Fair* was... damp. Damp, occasionally raining sideways, and entirely inconvenient, as weather canceled the free Northern State show scheduled to cap off Saturday at the RCF that I'd been looking forward to all week.
Arriving with only credit cards and zero cash forced me to behave and browse rather than buy, as I figured that most vendors there would not have credit card processing ability. After stopping in the Love Lulu Mae booth, I had to grab a business card and run home to their online store to dream: fascinators!


Swoon. I was especially enamored of a pheasant-feather headband not seen on their online store, but at $60, I will have to admire from afar.

Are there really occasions in my life that call for be-feathered headbands and hair clips? Of course not. But damn it, I will acquire a fascinator and I will wear it to my Internet Marketing and PR class if I please. (And I will shrug off the inevitable, backhandedly bitchy "wow, aren't you dressed up!" comments with a sweet sweet smile and a "thank you".)


*Noah misheard "I'm going to the Renegade Craft Fair today" as "I'm going to the Renaissance Faire today". He was very skeptical of these plans.

I can't stand those bitchy haters. They get on my damn nerves. It's like "Yes, bitch, I'm dressed up, and yes, I see that you are not, plain as day. I don't give a shit, so why do you? GET A LIFE!"

In other news, I need these feathery things. For some more affordable varieties, go here:

Oh, yes, I Etsyed (Etsied?) the hell out of fascinators when I arrived home last night. I didn't link my favorites (yet) as they're available in such limited quantities- I fear that they'll sell out before I have a chance to purchase them!

it wasn't only ike, tropical storm lowell (sp? I think) was the culprit on saturday. I was at a very nice wedding with a reception on a boat which effectively became a reception in a very small room with poor ventilation and low ceilings due to the storming outside. The flooding in the subway also almost made me miss my flight out on sunday. So damn both ike and lowell. The craft fair sounds nice though.

I know of a certain panda wedding that would serve as just the occasion for such a fabulous headband...

Jess: no, I haven't been to a Target since that wallet-draining trip a few weeks ago. Let me know how it is in person- their sizing for the GO lines can piss me the hell off at times.
