Well, summer is over in the Seattle area...I went out last night to a nice, swanky dinner with the BF and a few other couples to celebrate a b-day. I wore all black and carried my black MC pochette for some pop to the outfit and got some very admiring looks. Sure enough, while waiting for the valet, it started pouring and I got caught in the rain before I could duck under cover. Water spots on vachetta -- argh . BUT, it dried beautifully with no spots. I did use Shining Monkey on this so who knows it could have been just fine without spraying. Whew!
