Today's Jewelry: Beginning to Whine About the Cold


In addition to the numerous other negative things Winter carries on it's back (ie cold, freezing, chilly, brr-weather), one of my least favorites is STATIC. My hair has been floating all over my head this morning, reaching out towards my chair, trying to make phone calls on it's own, beckoning to people it likes...

Anyhow.

*Vintage rhinestone necklace (that refused to photograph clearly), from my grandma. The stones are in varying shades of smoky greys; I don't know if that's original or from age, but I love it.
*Black enamel berry branch earrings, from Cape Cod
*Black long sleeve tee with satin stripe, dark blue skinnies (lazy me!), black patent flats
*Space heater turned ON
*Casio watch

LLOL (literally laughing out loud) at your beckoning hair! Or is that come-hither hair? I went to Vegas last year for the first time and my hair didn't settle down for weeks after! Why do people live in deserts? Have they no pity for their hair?

Love the necklace! I have the same problem with my hair! esp when I wear winter hats! grr!

I like your necklace. It is very sweet! Here in Spain weather is not normal either, we are in 25ºC and it's already November!! Normally in November we were at maximum 12ºC!! Global warming...

LOL I know all about it! My home remedy: keep a sheet or two of laundry dryer sheets with you. Rub it over your hair lightly to get rid of the static.

Such sweet enamel earrings. And it is getting far too cold too fast. Shouldn't it be a slower, steadier decline into winter?

Sorry but on a different note - How is that Banana Yoshimoto book btw?? You look like Scarlet in Lost in Translation - that's the other thing i wanted to say...

WB: We talkled about this last night, but I still don't get how ANYON could live in that climate!

Lady N: Thanks! I try to stay away from hats. The static makes me go out of my mind.

Debbie: Thank you! I almost wish they weren't so comfy... I want to wear them all the time!

Atelier: Thank you! It's really not awful here either... I've just got the worst tolerance for cold. I'm a big baby!

Valley Girl: That works about half the time with me. The other half of the time I just smell really good, but my hair still floats.

Clothes Horse: Thanks, and optimally! Any kind of winter makes me sad, but this abruptness is a bit frustrating.

Riz: I love Banana's books. They have the weird dreaminess of a Murakami novel, but with a decidedly female bent. Maybe it's something in the translation? Speaking of translation (that was nice, right?).... thank you for the ScarJo comparison. When the movie was out, I was getting that A LOT. Nothing to complain about!
