Rainy Days and Mondays

1979 Per Spook red vinyl raincoat

It has been raining here since Friday. We're having a good old-fashioned New England Nor'easter, and all I can say is thank goodness it's not snow, as we'd be buried under several feet by now. The repairman is up on the roof of our 115-year-old house as I write this fixing a couple of leaks that have cropped up overnight. He's braver than I am, out in the wind and the rain. I don't even think these wonderful raincoats would keep me dry today.

I have a 1980s Aquascutum cream and silver polka dot A line swing raincoat complete with gold buttons and epaulettes. It livens up a rainy day no end :)

Love the red ones too.

I have to say I found a cute, cute, cute red rain coat in the kid's department of Macy's. I tried it on and it fit! I was very excited and walked around the store with it thinking I would purchase it. I had visions of me looking tres chic in my candy apple red swing rain coat with red rain boots and a red umbrella. I pictures myself looking oh so stylish as every one else darted in and out of the rain wearing hefty bags. Then I came to my senses remembered I live in Southern California where it NEVER rains but once a year and put it back on the rack and left dejected. Hummm I wonder how much a ticket to Seattle is.

Great Rainy Days pics ! I love the glossy ones, they make a dark day a lot brighter. I'm going to have to make one or two for my page...

If I owned that New Look 1949 Balenciaga fabardine gabardine raincoat, I'd say let April do its worst.
