ok, this post is three days old now due to the hiatus, and then being really really busy. so here's what happened on St. Patrick's day.
1) I wore this dress I found in Tokyo for THREE dollars, and it wasn't even a thrift or consignment store. It was the only one, by far the cheapest item in the store, and exactly my size. I almost peed my pants. anyway it's one of my favourite green items, so I've been waiting for this special green day to post it.
Also I found this amazing ring, with a real four leaf clover enclosed inside, a couple years ago at Coal Umbrella (which sadly has closed now). I had broken a mirror that day, and then just happened to find this ring! later that night Ryan kissed me for the first time...and now we're married so there's a fun story to this baby.
Also, it got chilly again so I wore this coat I found at Harajuku for TEN dollars. Seriously you guys, Japan does not typically have such cheap clothes, especially in the shopping districts. seriously lucked out on this trip. It's a pretty pastelly green so I've been waiting to spring to wear it.
We had some friends over in the evening for corned beef and cabbage, irish cheddar and crackers, and fresh limeade.
