June Gloom… (and what is really happening)

June Gloom is a Southern California term for a weather pattern that results in cloudy, overcast skies with cool temperatures during the late spring and early summer. … On a strong June Gloom day, the clouds and fog may extend inland to the valleys and Inland Empire and may persist into the mid-afternoon or evening.

Go figure~ this is the time dievca can take a quick jaunt to visit friends in CA. she wanted to park it on the beach….but she’s been told it isn’t the best time.

This is quite annoying since the weather in NYC has been heavily gloomy, too. With dievca’s luck, NYC weather will be gorgeous and CA a mess.  Ah, well. At least she is out of the City.

HAH! dievca’s plane arrived 45 minutes early,
her luggage was the first off the plane
and the WEATHER IS AWESOME!

 

 


Turquoise thread, anyone? (a dievca Disaster)

So, dievca ended up picking the Oscar de la Renta dress and was planning to wear Proenza Schouler heels with a gray clutch.

Oscar de la Renta Turquoise Dress



When doing a last try-on with the proper Spanx underpinnings, dievca managed to put her thumb through a seam and she doesn’t have turquoise thread to fix it. Plus, the heels – any heels, were killing her knee.

So, back to the drawing board with flats in mind.

Lululemon Swifty Tech Tee

Dragonflies, normal come out in the heat of Summer and we are not there, yet. But, dievca ran into Dragonfly Green at Lululemon. and she will use the pieces through the heat of the summer. 

dievca gets to Lululemon, once, every 6 months. This time she went with a friend who is obsessed with Lulu gear. They spent an hour + in the store.

dievca had to buy this bra, for three reasons:

Lululemon Stash and Run Brareasons:

  1. It fits her well
  2. Her Grandma on the Slovak side was infamous for stashing items in her bra. dievca will laugh every time she wears it.
  3. The color looks good on dievca.

Now, if she can get it together to add make-up. Doubt it.

dievca’s friend was kind enough to stay an hour+ in Anthropologie, afterward, but that is for another post. They made their way to a party by NYU and gobbled up some ramen afterward (Ramen Takumi). As dievca’s friend was walking back to her car and dievca was starting to look for a cab, they spotted this in a florist’s window:

Beautiful, huh? Maybe something for dievca’s bedroom.  By the way, the peonies are out!


Sushi and Sudafed~

Master came over to spend time in my lovely apartment while I worked and we were planning to share Sushi and Sex when I came home.

We had sushi from Kiku.

Some pollen invaded through the windows after sundown and Master had an allergy attack.

I don’t really have allergies…I had saline solution for His eyes and went digging for anything that might resemble an allergy medicine. (Please note that Master just stopped getting allergy shots this year–after 25 years, otherwise, I would have been prepared.)
All the meds were out of their boxes…I looked up a few names and ended up giving Him “loratadine” (uhh, expiration 2008) Whew! It still worked! (don’t judge) And followed up with Sudafed.

Let’s just say that Master’s Eyes were like blue lasers because of the redness before He took a snooze.

It was strange but Peter Gabriel’s Laser Blue Eyes came to mind as I was cleaning up the sushi remains. This song just reminds me of Master. He’d laugh – my typical 80’s music, but this extended version is my favorite.  I remember driving in a beat up red 1979 Subaru with the windows down, rocking to this song on the cassette player.  I was too cool (and had no allergies….)

Morning Buzzkill

Something that just killed the morning…
the lid popped off,
I tried to save it,
it all spilled when I stopped.
