My mom rescued me from the snow, yipee! She was hungry so we went over to [El Salto] for lunch. Unfortunatly, I’d already eaten lunch and wasn’t hungry. I munched on chips, had a tasty margarita, and enjoyed the conversation. Then we headed over to Barnes & Nobles in [Towson, MD] but they were closed. Went down a few more blocks to Borders and picked up a new book:

[Fashion]: The Collection of the [Kyoto Costume Institute]; A History from the 18th to the 20th Century. Published by [Taschen].

Wow, what a book. Thank goodness the copy I bought was wrapped in plastic, I was still drooling from just thumbing through the preview copy they had on the shelves. This is a sweet book. Ended up buying it instead of the [Make Your Own Japanese Clothing] book I had come to the store for. I think it was a wise choice. I’ll just go to the library to get that one; I’d rather have this book on my shelf for reference.
