Dressing for Rain That Isn't There, plus an Ode to Maitreya

We have an average of 150 rainy days a year where I live  and they are almost all consecutive. We have a sunny, dry season and a cloudy, wet season. As much as folks struggle to make four seasons,  it’s more like 2.5.  It’s not as bad as it sounds, though, since you can run around in the rain for two hours without getting wet. This is the perfect sort of outfit for the kind of rainy days we get. It acknowledges the weather without overreacting.  You want to look like you did check the weather in the morning and are not oblivious to the rain or the old folks on the bus will “tut tut.” What could be better than a lovely sweater dress with a thick enough knit to repel all the rain and some nice warm knit stockings to keep your tootsies toasty? When I saw this Ingrid dress at Lelutka I decided I want one in every color in RL. Now if only they were sold in Lindens.

Could there be more perfect boots?  How do I love there, Maitreya Soho boots?

Let me count the ways.

I love thee to the depth
and breadth
and height
Leather soles can reach
when looking outta-sight.

For the ends of Fashion and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday’s
Most aching feet,
by sun and candlelight.

I love thee freely,
Striving to look right;
I love thee purely,
turning feet for Praise.

I love thee with the passion
of a shoe addict ,
and with fashionista faith.

I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost Louboutins,

–I love thee with the breath, Smiles, tears,
of all my life!

–and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after you’re broken in.

That was fun! The jewelry I went with is a fun mix from Bonita’s, Muse and SteinWerks.  The hair is Papercut II from Cake. I love the little wisps.

Can you tell I love this Alice skin from Milk Motion? I keep dragging it out because the eye makeup is just so compelling. Speaking of eyes, Hart Larsson of PXL Creations has made some eyes and sent me a few samples. I am going to pretend he made this pair just for me because they’re perfect.
