Married Fashion Dorks

The San Francisco rain season is to start Tuesday. The Ukrainian and I are prepared. Yesterday, we walked 3 blocks over to Fillmore St. and purchase these fab matching unisex rainboots from Marc by Marc Jacobs.

Marc by Marc Jacobs rainboots. The Ukrainian got his in orange. I purchased mine blue.

So San Francisco, bring it on! The Ukrainian and I are prepared for your winter.

* Addendum:  Iowa got snow yesterday. I  grew up there. As unpleasant as I find the winter California rain, I’m glad not to endure rain.

** Addendum #2:  The Ukrainian is under the mistaken belief that since San Francisco is in California, it should never be cold. He didn’t enjoy this weekend’s brisk, gray, windy weather and couldn’t figure out why it didn’t bother me. One word:  Layers.

*** Addendum #3:  Our new flat is significantly better insulated than our old Victorian. It also has modern electric heaters rather than a single vintage gas stove from circa 1939. However, I would still like to know how many decades need to pass before contractors learn that putting heaters beneath windows is about the most inefficient way to heat a place.

**** Addendum #4: I’m done talking about the weather. Really. But just for today.

*****Addendum #5:  I freaked when I first learned there was a Marc by Marc Jacobs 3 blocks away from our apartment. I could see my entire life savings going down to Fillmore St. based on the evidence that I spend way too much of my paycheck at Banana Republic since it’s literally across the street from my office. But in reality, Marc by Marc Jacobs has products that are almost as inexpensive as Target.  The boots shown above? Only $28!

    I just wanted to comment and say how much I love your writing. Last July I married a Ukrainian….everything you talked about, experienced….I think I felt and thought the same. Yes, I was even anxiously printing out photos the evening before our interview too!!
