That's not purple, Mary...

The title of this post comes from one of my favorite miniseries, Angels In America, which I hope I'll be able to see onstage someday. The exchange goes like this:

Belize: Look at that heavy sky out there.
Louis: Purple.
Belize: Purple? What kind of a homosexual are you anyway? That's not purple, Mary, that color out there... is mauve.

This is the outfit I wore on our date night on Friday. I love it. The tomboy cheered when I came downstairs. I pointed to my belt and said, "Guess who's coming out with us tonight?" (I can't remember the last time Sheeba circled my waist.) It's just fun, the whole outfit, and shamelessly pretty. What makes it, I think, is the blazer from Asos. It was a steal, around 39 GBP, and it's the perfect companion to these shoes. It's also linen, so it was a foolish choice for a March night still being throttled by winter, but it's going to be my BFF this Spring/Summer, I can tell.

Last night I discovered that, as far as I can tell, I cannot get Fifi Chachnil in the states. This was grave news as I've been desperate to get my hands on some since my decant ran out late last year. On the bright side, I'll be able to visit their shop in London when we're there this June! In the meantime, I ordered another 5ML to get me through, as well as a Frederic Malle decant sampler. I'm so excited. It's been awhile since I've reviewed scents here, or even since I've gotten new ones, so I'm hoping it'll kickstart that old habit!

Speaking of scents, I accidentally mashed these flowers into my hair when taking these, and my hair smelled weird the rest of the day. Since you readers are so swell at telling me which flowers are which, can anybody tell me what these are? I picked up four bouquets and made three lush, cheerful arrangements out of them. My nail polish is Caitlin from Zoya's Spring Collection, Intimate.

Spring, won't you hurry? Quit letting this dreadful, lingering winter bully you!

What Spring trends are you looking forward to most, and has Spring hit where you live yet?
