Calendar Couture

Almost two weeks into May, the rain/snow of the past month is beginning to prove its worth with the fresh blooms and lush foliage that can be seen just outside my window. Luckily, we can have that year round if we so desire in SL™, but the difference 30 days on the grid can make in our virtual wardrobes is as unpredictable as those April showers.

Speaking of unpredictable, it looks like Nic got caught in a downpour! Turns out that Sports Section might deserve more credit than I give it, as it keeps his coif dry. Not to be outdone, his khaki trench is keeping his Italian suit well protected against the elements. Now, Nic is an admitted fan of the rain, however I have no doubt that the quaint Irish pub in the background is beckoning him inside for a bit of shelter Guinness.

The trickle effect of that rainy fashion from above is coming up roses for May. I plucked these gorgeous tiered dresses during my latest visit to Aoharu, and while the array of colour choices was impressive, I narrowed it down to three. The neutral base of the middle dress gave it a fancied up bohemian feel that I adore, but the other two were too pretty to leave behind and served to create harmony within the floral design. Simply add a sleek updo and a flower tucked neatly in place and you’ll be ready for any garden party, but make sure Nic is nearby with his trusty paper just in case of you know what…

P.S. This is an official shout-out to James Schwarz, Jon Crawford, and Lauryn Arado, who we had the pleasure of meeting in all their stylish glory as they ventured out from life on the UES. Told you we would! 😉

  1. Nicolas is channeling the rain scene from Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

    Dahlia, the dress just too pretty. Like the way it moves too.

    And T to the HANK you! It was really fun talking to you guys, I was giving them a tour around the sim and I didn’t even know you two were there till you said something while we were about to leave, I was like no way! starstruck. XD

    Peace out!

  2. Oh hai, James! Hopefully we’ll run into you and your crew again soon. I’m brushing up on how to say goodbye in a few more languages just in case. lol
    If Nic and I ever take a stroll on the UES we’ll know who to ask for. 🙂

  5. it was a pleasure meeting you, dahlia and nic. who knew that fabulous people like you existed outside of the UES? don’t forget to come visit us soon.

  6. Nic certainly cuts a dashing figure in the rain. And that’s a very pretty dress too!

    But what, pray tell, is the UES?

    (something about this post has me talking like Audrey Hepburn!)

  7. @Portia – Thank you darling!

    @Lauryn – You had me at the red tights ♥

    @Jon – We definitely want to come and check it out we just need to send for the taxi (TP!).

    @Annyka Hepburn 😉 – Ok, thank goodness I had Nic on voice so I could whisper “WTF is the…” and he knew to say “Upper East Side” before I could even finish my sentence. So I guess it’s like the New York equivalent of the O.C.? Welcome to the UES, bitch!

  8. ooooh that’s so GG!
