What I'm Wearing | The Rainy Day Edition!

Don't you just hate rainy days?  I know I do.  I wish I could just opt out of every obligation and just stay home and sew.  Grocery shopping?  Sorry, I'm not going.  Eat whatever you can find... it's raining.  My child needs to be picked up from school?  Sorry kid.  Bum a ride... it's raining.  I kid... 
So, instead of being a Grumpy Gus about the weather... you know, matters completely out of my control.  I decided to suck it up, put on a nice outfit and attend an early morning event.
Can I tell y'all how much I still love this jacket?  Oh, and my husband told me I have way too many consecutive posts wearing sunglasses.  And he'd appreciate if I gave them a rest.  Well, since there was no sun, I granted his wish! LOL

So, the reason I got out in the cold rain was for Belk's Spring '13 Fashion Tour that was held on yesterday at the Birmingham Summit Mall location.  And it was totally worth it.  I'll talk more about the fashion trends that were introduced in a separate post.  But I wanted to share with you the beauty trends that were gifted to us in our goodie bag.  I can't wait to fully experience all of the products.  But as of right now, my favorite 2 are the AHAVA Mineral Hand Cream and Isaac Mizrahi's new fragrance "Fabulous".  The hand cream is amazing.  I've been using it since I left the store yesterday.  It doesn't have a greasy residue and it's perfect to use while handling fabric and using a touch screen device.  And the fragrance smells wonderful.  And what better name for what I'm certain will become my Spring/Summer signature scent.
Wearing:  jacket: Vogue 8333; leather peplum top: Vogue 8815; pants: Vogue 1143; shoes: Shoe Dazzle.com; necklace:  BCBG Max Azria (old); purse (old); umbrella: Totes.
