My Fair Lady

Short-sleeved linen blazer, Forever 21. Orange dress, The Limited. Brown pumps, Antonio Melani. Necklaces, Body Central. Bag, Caprice (vintage).

I love “theater people.” When I moved to Cincinnati, just over three years ago, I knew no one but my husband. I got involved in local theater to make new friends. While some groups are admittedly clique-ish, others welcomed me with open arms. It was such a relief to be my real, goofy self, after having to maintain a military demeanor for almost four years. I consider myself fortunate to have collected a large circle of friends who are as screwy as I am. One of my very sweet cohorts is taking me to see My Fair Lady tonight, at the Aronoff. Yeah for theater dorks!

I’ve included a close-up of this Caprice purse so that my readers might be able to help me name the types of skins used. I’ve identified most of it as snake. I think the wavy bands may be ostrich (and the circular marks are where the feathers used to be). I’m at a loss on the pebbly skin to the bottom left and the other textured skin on the bottom right. Are there any exotic skin experts out there?

The stuff that looks like snake skin, only with bigger scales, is probably Eel. I used to have an eel-skin purse I bought in Hong Kong. It's nice stuff, but fragile.

I Love My Fair Lady!!!

The last time I saw it on t.v., I was almost late for school because I *had* to stay and sing along - despite the fact that I do have a DVR.

The bottom right could be alligator or croc skin.
