Rain, rain, go away.

Let it be noted that four months ago I moved away from Los Angeles to a small mountain town. I knew I was going to face real weather, but really, let me have a little sun.

I shouldn't complain. Nobody should ever complain. I should be happy I can still pull of tights under dresses under cardigans under coats. Get some frosting because we're adding another layer to this cake.

Then of course there's another promise of pictures that will probably never come.

I was thinking that during my dry spells I could blog about fashion. Which was always kind of what I wanted for the website I someday hope to maintain. Someday...
