Looking at neighborhoods and apartments,
while wearing “real” (non-athletic wear) clothing…
dievca is channeling her inner Irina Demick.
Now if she was just biking somewhere on Holiday…
If you describe someone or something as pathetic, you mean that they make you feel impatient or angry, often because they are weak or not very good.
dievca is calling herself pathetic….not in the real sense. In the sense that she knows she is weak and she is laughing at herself.
The custom $400 sweatshirt…The sweatshirt itself is Atelier Notify and $110 — so the custom graphics (only a silk screen – not embroidery, mind you) is $300+.
That dievca is even thinking about this is bad…
Now you know why she calls herself pathetic…
To resist the urge to buy — dievca is finishing off the last of her taxes, grocery shopping and visiting to three open houses on the UWS. Housing prices are going down and it might be time to buy~
Umm, the sweatshirt would be cheaper than buying a co-op. Co-op will last longer, hopefully. 😁
Have a lovely Sunday!
The daffodils have blossomed, trees are showing leaves — the temperature is predicted to be around 70 F (21 C), Master and dievca are planning on a picnic!
Time to pull out that Hunter x Target backpack!
dievca keeps singing:
It’s not elegant, it’s not “pretty” – but for a dievca with back issues and someone who bikes to work — it’s a necessity.
Have you ever biked with a Tote Bag on your shoulder? Brutal.
That said, dievca tries to mix it up with styles and colors. Some of her backpacks are selected for rainy days, some are just practical “go to” bags and some are the closest thing to elegant you can get in a backpack.
Yes, dievca has a lot of backpacks… but she sold or gave away many of her crossbody, shoulder bags and totes — she kept only the excellent basics and/or heartfelt memory bags. dievca did keep a number of evening bags / small bags that fit into her backpacks and will finish a outift properly.
dievca’s backpacks in current rotation:
Note: a couple of backpacks dievca has shown in the past have bitten the dust – fallen apart, faded or got stained so badly…. she really uses this type of bag…something useful!
The only backpack dievca is lusting over at the moment is from the French brand Jack Gomme:
(she blew her $ on that Issey Miyake Bao Bao black backpack…totally worth it.)
A 30 degree drop in temperature (Fahrenheit, 16 degree drop in celsius) within 24 hours.
dievca is pretty good at working in celsius from a science background and living in Europe for a several years. she does check herself with the formula = (°F − 32) × 5/9 = °C
How does one dress?
In Layers….ready to peel everything off in a moment.

dievca had a working dinner last evening in her apartment. The number of attendees kept growing and good information was shared.
And then the bubbly came out:
Let’s just say this morning was sssslllloooowwww…
