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.
