chasing the blues (rain) away

Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
Daddy wants to play
Rain, rain go away

Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
Mommy wants to play
Rain, rain, go away

Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
Brother wants to play
Rain, rain, go away

Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
Sister wants to play
Rain, rain, go away

Rain, Rain, go away
Come again another day
All the family wants to play
Rain, rain, go away

dievca’s DKNY brown shiny raincoat bit the dust…
Here’s her replacement to help beat the April Showers~


If You do it Well, do it Six times

OK, four times, with the fifth in Alpaca.
Sies Marjan Bessie Trench Coat $600-$2000...


Wearing your Sign~

Peaceful Warrior Tee Shirt


It’s coming up…dievca’s House:

Pretty true, but dievca doesn’t hate to be alone. she does hate to get wet in the rain and this Vetements Unisex Over-sized Zodiac Raincoat goes over her backpack easily and isn’t as heavy as her Stutterheim Raincoat. Now that she has moved, her risk of being hit by a Truck while biking has lessened.

 This is true:


Stealing from the Boys…

With the Gloomy Weather dievca had picked up a packable anorak from the Gap.
It’s not super ladylike,
but it’s been useful and a the print is a conversation starter.

GapFit Hybrid Pullover Anorak MSRP $79.95

dievca bought a Men’s small and it goes over layers.
The anorak is on sale at gap.com for $49.95 and possibly an extra 40% off –
but there is only size XL left online.
You can check availability for other sizes at stores, on the site.

Maybe that would work for you or someone you know?
If dievca bought it for Master, it would be too matchy-matchy…right?

…and a little Retail Therapy

Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head – by Burt Bacharach

Lyrics:

Raindrops keep falling on my head
And just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed
Nothin’ seems to fit
Those raindrops are falling on my head, they keep falling

So I just did me some talkin’ to the sun
And I said I didn’t like the way he got things done
Sleepin’ on the job
Those raindrops are falling on my head, they keep falling

But there’s one thing I know
The blues they send to meet me won’t defeat me
It won’t be long till happiness steps up to greet me

Raindrops keep falling on my head
But that doesn’t mean my eyes will soon be turnin’ red
Crying’s not for me
‘Cause I’m never gonna stop the rain by complainin’
Because I’m free
Nothing’s worrying me.

Raindrops keep falling on my head
But that doesn’t mean my eyes will soon be turnin’ red
Crying’s not for me
‘Cause I’m never gonna stop the rain by complainin’
Because I’m free
Nothing’s worrying me.

Master’s back on Sunday.
It’s the weekend.
And a little retail therapy helped ease the anger from Wednesday.
Thank you, Alexa Chung. Cute Raincoat.


Dievča do dažďa

Rainy Day Girl

dievca is obsessed with a girl she keeps seeing who wears a Red PVC Trench with red Hunter Boots and looks utterly adorable. she thinks of her as the “Rainy Day Girl”.  It prompted dievca to look on eBay for a red PVC trench. A little BDSM Fetish Wear in shiny PVC.

Then logic set in: no room in a NYC apartment for another coat and dievca owns a fabulous Brown PVC rain coat by DKNY. she bought it in the SoHo store many moons ago. Master has complimented her on it.  Very Downtown Chic.

(It’s the same as the photos below — the photos are from eBay. The coat is sold. Sorry.)


The random kindness of a stranger….

I was walking, head down, eating a sandwich with my headphones on. Almost no one on the streets in the rain. Heading to work.  Heavy thoughts swirling around my mind.

A tourist walks by and stops me. Yes, stops me. I’m irritated to be thrown out of my bubble and ungraciously I take off my headphones to help him.

“I really love your rain slicker” said in a British accent with smiling eyes.

I blink, taken aback, shaken out of my mental mire. “Thank You”, I automatically reply.

And all of a sudden, I feel better about Life because the random kindness of a stranger.

I wonder what he really saw, looking at me.

Walk in the Rain

I just don’t want to get hit…

biker image in the rainKeep this in the back of your mind.
Sometimes the fastest way to traverse the City is walking.
Or if you can get to a bike path…riding your bike.

dievca was on the hunt for a rain jacket for Master.
He looks best in simple clean designs and her search patterns took her to
STUTTERHEIM RAINCOATS: Swedish Melancholy at its Driest.

Stutterheim Stockholm Black

When dievca found a store in the City carrying the handmade jackets,
she ended up trying them on for herself,
thinking all the while about not being hit by a car when biking….

Orange is her favorite, but they didn’t have her size.
dievca is trying to decide on another color.
Any suggestions?

dievca just ran into this jacket on the website. It’s a Limited Edition of 100.
she will really have to consider it.
Cool, huh? And for a good cause, too.
Wonder if they sold out?
