Kissing in the Rain

I've always been a daydreamer. I see random things or get bored and begin to create images in my head of a perfect scenarios for my life or things that would never happen in real life but are fun to think about. basically creating my own Disney movie. sometimes these daydreams include outfits. Like last night...

The photo lab where I work is at my school. It's a boarding school in new england filled with brick buildings, marble steps, and lush "quads" as we like to call them. The photo lab is on the bottom floor of the Academy Building in a small air conditioned room with no windows. So you could imagine my surprise when I ended my shift at 9pm and found myself in the middle of a massive thunderstorm. I had on a tank top, jean shorts, and hurley flip flops(not my most fashionable day) with a copy of vogue and a dvd of breakfast at tiffany's in one hand and car keys in the other. I started sprinting down the marble steps. I was completely alone as I sprinted through campus trying to get to my car. The lightning illuminated the small bell tower on top of the academic building and I began to shiver as my hair clung to my neck and face and the copy of vogue was just a pile of soggy paper. Trying to ignore how uncomfortable I was, I focused more on how haunted the buildings looked when the lightning and thunder came and how this tree with white flowers whipped around sending petals everywhere. and then I saw myself in this light blue lace dress with white stilletos running out of some event and then it became the scene with audrey hepburn and george peppard kissing in the rain.

When I finally got in the car and started slowly making my way home the cd in the car was filled with slow quiet songs by Savage Garden, Radiohead, and Alicia Keys and I envisioned this second outfit. In this one it was more like the real life situation. I was alone running towards someplace dry just all dressed up.

Lovely outfits! If you look up in my blog, I answered the question about the beach towel (in short, it's from a Spanish designer, Jordi Labanda).

I like the second outfit. Polyvore is such a time waster for me. haha.

What a lovely image. I want to take my pictures in a bathtub full of water and my outfit floating around me or in a storm...but I fear I will just look like a drowned rat--not Audrey!
