I am home sick AGAIN. I am taking Naomi's advice to prophylactically use the steroid inhaler from when I was sick for two months with bronchitis, in the hope of avoiding that happening again.

However, in between being sick, I recently managed to go hiking in Malibu and go to an exchange party where everyone brings things they don't want any more and takes what they want. I obtained three gorgeous dresses, one silk, and two skirts. The skirts are not shown as I went to the party in a dress, so I had nothing to wear on top.

Cut for pretty pictures.

Sky rays 1

Sky rays 3

Early evening, at an ordinary parking lot. It looked like the war in heaven, as if some angelic cannon had blown two holes in the sky. People were stopping and staring. I couldn't get the entire view, but the light rays went all the way across the sky and were as sharp as if they'd been cut with a razor.

Some friends and I went hiking in Malibu, also in early evening.

Witch brew sunset

We watched the sun set and drank a bottle each of Witches Brew that one friend had bought in the Black Forest. We must all be witches, because none of us were hung over the next morning.

And then there's my precious new dresses.

I love this dress. It looks just like blue and white Chinese or Delft porcelain. No tags, so I don't know where it comes from. It looks a bit Betsey Johnson-ish.

This is a silk dress from Miss Me.

Isn't that gorgeous? (Yes, it needs a skirt-slip or stockings, and a cup-only bra.) I need to put on the correct undergarments and find somewhere to wear it to.

Those are all lovely, but you are really rocking the black one.

Thank you! I thought so too. The back is especially excellent.

I really did! Can't wait to wear them.

I looked up Nanette Lapore skirts (not pictured) and they start at $200.

Awesome dresses!

Here's hoping the advice you took serves you well...

Oh, I can tell already that it was one of the best suggestions anyone has ever given me. Seriously. Having colds develop into lingering respiratory things has been a problem my entire life, and you are the first person to ever give me a suggestion on that which had actually been helpful.

I was totally shocked by what a huge difference it made to use it. I'd had the prescription for years, but my previous doctors had never sat me down and explained exactly how I ought to be using it.

That blue delft one is so pretty! And the black one is so glamorous.

I love the first two cloud photos--they're magnificent. And the sun shining through the witch's brew is lovely. Drink that sunshine :-)

I use a beclomethasone inhaler twice a day to prevent a weirdo cough that lasts forever after a cold. I have maybe a cold a year and it is worth it to me (takes 6 weeks to build up) though I do slack some in the summer when I am less likely to get sick. Before this I was going to Urgent Care w the cough and getting SUPER MESSED UP on opiates and albuterol and this is way better. Yay preventative meds!

The black dress was so cute that I feel I should be fanning myself off! Also I love how your head is aligned perfectly w some kind of feathered headdress on the wall in the one pic.

Isn't it just? I am so vain, I am admiring my own shoulderblades. ;)

Get better soon! :)

"Angelic cannon shot two holes in the sky" is the BEST description ever.

Those dresses are so beautiful! Especially the blue and white one, and the black one. I love the black dress's straps at the back, and its skirt. :)

Beautiful pictures all, and I love the description of the clouds and the bit about the Witches Brew. I actually really dig the middle dress, though they all look good on you. That black one is jawdroppingly gorgeous. I hope you find lots of places to wear it, because you deserve to be seen in it as much as possible.
