I Don’t Care If It Rains

Why don’t I care if it rains? Not only because it brings beautiful flowers and lush, green lawn, but because I have all of the gear to be stylish in a shower.

It isn’t a bad idea to wear a minimal top so it doesn’t get saturated by the rain. In this case, it is a lovely lace bra masquerading as a midriff-baring top from *Just BECAUSE*, available at this month’s round of FaMESHed. It is part of a set with matching panties that come in both a lace and solid version. They pair perfectly with a dress with the same options, but this is pretty enough to show off on its own.

To help protect the rest of me are several lovely items from the “Rainy Days” round of The Liaison Collaborative. Starting at the top is this great hat from GizzA . It is stylish as well as practical. To add another layer of protection is this sweet rain jacket from Vinyl. It comes in a wide variety of colours, with bonus textures if you pick up the fatpack. And finally, these adorable capris from ~Nerido~ give you the option of wearing the belt, or not, making these casual pants great for layering or for a highlight for your mid-section.

In the background is the welcoming Palma set from {what next} from the current round of Collabor88. You can purchase the chairs, tables (in multiple colours), lanterns and decor set separately, but for only 188L, you really should go for the full set. It’s too good a bargain to let wash away.

I should grab the books though; I may not be afraid of the rain, but I don’t want to ruin a classic!

That 70s Pic

1 That 70s Pic sm

I made poor Serene pay for perving me while I was doing my last shoot at Furillen; I needed a male model to pose with me in my 70’s gear from Vintage Fair. Since poor Chance is stuck in a modern hipster look, I dragged Serene over to fill in for my sadly neglected MALT. Didn’t he do it admirably????

I have to give him a special thank you for so gallantly coming to my rescue and posing for me with no complaints. I did do him the courtesy of creating the set and even selecting the pose before I hauled him over; otherwise, I fear the Janitor might have been fired for being absent from his job for too long.

I have no credits for Serene’s look. It is his very unique persona, so if you want to know what he is wearing, you’ll have to ask him yourself!

As for me, as always, the credits for every little scrap of my attire, set and pose are on display for you below.

Just two more days until Vintage fair opens; then you can head over to create your very own 70s pic for yourself!

Waiting For The Post

1 Waiting for the Post 1

It’s rare to actually wait for the postman anymore. FedEX or StarTrack, maybe, but most days I check my mailbox and, despite the “No junk mail” placard, I find my box stuffed with realtor and pizza delivery ads. With texting and instant messaging it is also rare to even receive a “real” email.

I do remember the times, though, when the stop at the postbox would bring a smile to my face with a card, a letter or even a postcard (do they still make those?). Even the inconvenience of having to make a trip to the post office was overshadowed by the knowledge that a parcel too large for the box awaited me.

My postman, by the way, never rings twice; I’m lucky if he makes the 20-step trek to my front door, and I went into a panic before Christmas when he haphazardly stuffed a delivery into my box, only to have my neighbour rescue it…then forget to tell me she had picked it up for a week. Trust me; you do NOT want to have to deal with AusPost customer service in the lead up to the holiday!

Occasionally, though, there is still something other than a bill or junk, a treasure trove to be savoured and remembered, as a nostalgic remembrance of simpler times.

The postbox in my photo that brought on those memories is located at Rwah’s newest photography sim, Purple Crayons. It will be open soon; I’ll give details when it goes public. It is truly a destination not to be missed! Edit: Purple Crayons is now open! Also open now is Sneak Peek, so plan on doing some shopping!
