On a clear blue day dreaming your heartache away  

Last weekend I indulged in some serious retail therapy:

I still haven't found a resizing programme that I'm completely satisfied with. So far the screen caps programme Capture Me works best, but even those screen caps seem to suffer from a loss of definition, resulting in a slight soft-focus effect. Or maybe I am just being too critical.

Now that's what I call a jacket suitable for a Supreme Squirrel! ;)

Red! Leather! Jacket! It has 'Supreme Squirrel" written all over it, LOL!

Snazzy. You can definitely paint the town red in that jacket.

Hee, that sounds like a fab idea! ;)

Versace...how impressive. Love the colour, too! Have you worn it yet?
Mnemosyne_lethe_ on March 6th, 2006 12:07 pm (UTC)
Winter seems to have only just begun here, so it's been too cold to wear it outside. I've worn it once underneath my overcoat to show my mum when I went to visit.

Do you know that I STILL haven't worn my new coat!? I lost all my beautiful coats in the flood from the hurricane. I bought a lovely Donatella Versace and have NEVER worn it here in Houston. Today will be 80 degrees Farenheit (27C), so hot!!! I love season changes but there are none here.

Nice! I want one!!

Unintentional soft-focus is a hoot, though. Camera phones seem to have that problem, but a wee phone inside a tiny phone doesn't warrant much criticism...I tended to be critical of those who used them until my father threw one at me because my parents like to pretend I'm a normal 19 year old girl. ;) However, when it's college kids doing dumb things with those phones, the soft focus adds a delightful touch of raunchiness to the hijinx.

I am always drawn to red, I just love that colour.

Hee, somehow your description brings to mind '70s amateur porn films... of course soft focus can be very artistic as well! ;P

I love red, too. Chartreuse is my favorite color, actually. Unfortunately, I've found that if I wear loud colors and act usual endearing self, it's too much loudness for a body to handle. For instance, I was having some boisterous conversation with someone last semester in the quad...I might have been berating them for being an ugly american lazy student. I was in my usual attire, and some bystander remarked, "Your clothes say 'nice,' but your mouth says, 'obnoxious!'" I chalked it up to this particular scholar and gentleman neglecting to fulfill his daily caffeine needs (we all have our benign addictions that somehow manifest themselves when we don't tend them) -- which he later admitted to and apologized profusely and sincerely as a college-aged boy can, but it gave me something to think about. =D

I wish I could wear such snazzy jackets as yours without overwhelming the senses of those within earshot.

Hello babe!!

I'm back on LJ after about a month of nightmares with my computer, and you were the first friend that I've gone to to catch up with their journal. Am so sorry to hear the bad news about your mum :( I hope everything's as okay as can be expected. Things must be tough for you at the moment :(

Jacket is incredibly beautiful! And hey guess what, I did that enneagram thing last year and found it unbelievably accurate too - and I'm a nine too :D

Hugs to you hun xx

Hey sweetie!! Great to see you back, I've missed you!

Things are tough, but mum has an optimistic nature, so that is good.

I'm not surprised you are a nine, great minds etc. etc. :D

Thanks honey! *hugs back*
