dievca is on Champagne this Morning

Apparently the ADA’s came into a Court Room of the NYC Grand Jury and it smelled heavily of wine, so alcohol has been forbidden in the Courthouse – a memo went out~

Yes, dievca did ask the Warden if the Jury could do something afterward. No go~

she will work the morning holding a coffee, do her Jury Duty, have one Prosecco before hopping on the bike to get to work for the second round.

An extra 20 hours a week (that includes the commute) has taken its toll. dievca needs to celebrate the end.

Who better to celebrate with than Talullah Bankhead?

If I had to live my life again, I’d make the same mistakes, only sooner.
Nobody can be exactly like me. Sometimes even I have trouble doing it.
I’m as pure as the driven slush.
The only thing I regret about my past is the length of it..
Only good girls keep diaries. Bad girls don’t have time.
I read Shakespeare and the Bible, and I can shoot dice. That’s what I call a liberal education.
(On seeing a former lover for the first time in years) I thought I told you to wait in the car.
Here’s a rule I recommend: Never practice two vices at once.
I’ll come and make love to you at five o’clock. If I’m late start without me.
And the quote dievca feels strongly about:
I’d rather be strongly wrong than weakly right.

Now let her get that damn 8 year pass for doing Grand Jury Duty….


Not breaking Fashion rules: finally understanding why

There was a time when people stuck to the rule that white clothing was only “allowed” between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

In the early 1900s, the rule about only¬†wearing white¬†between Memorial Day and Labor Day was started according to the vacationing schedule of the elite, when there “was a dress code for practically every occasion.” Those who could afford it would leave their homes behind and spend months at the sea or in the mountains, where they had a completely different type of wardrobe, including the light, bright white pieces most associated with the summer months. When those fun-loving summer days were over, the white clothes were packed away and the people went back to their regular lives, having escaped the oppressive heat between the end of May and early September. Those white clothes that they loved during the summer months had no place in their “real life” wardrobes, so the cutoff for white clothing became Labor Day.

Nowadays, you may have started wearing white on the first 90F (32 C) day of year or earlier.

dievca thought she still avoided wearing white until after Memorial Day because it was the “rule”, but she finally realized that she uses white sparingly—period, because….its New York City.

Can you imagine how dirty this Helmut Lang Leather Slip Dress would get?

And that is the true reason dievca doesn’t really break the “white” rule.

Happy Memorial Day! (and wear white for dievca)
