What To Wear In The Never-Ending Los Angeles Heat Wave


And the answer is…


Cynthia (yelling):  NOTHING.

penelope kitten (squeaking):  gasp. naked?

Cynthia (yelling louder):  YES.

penelope kitten:  buck naked?

Cynthia (shouting):  Better yet… shove your face in the freezer and hope it turns into an ice cube!

Marcy comes stalking into the kitchen where Cynthia is having her hysterics in front of the open freezer.

Marcy:  What happened? It’s been scorching hot in Los Angeles for the past year. You should be used to it by now.

Cynthia:  Well, Marcy, I was trying to look cool for some photos.

Marcy:  In that stupid outfit?




Cynthia (ignoring her):  But, it was too hot. And I got really mad.




Cynthia:  So, I had to lie down.




Marcy:  You need to get a grip. You live in LA!

Cynthia (demonstratively):  But LA has turned into an inferno! A dry creepy never-ending summer. Most of us don’t even have air conditioning out here. And those of us that do have a crummy little box in one room that creates more noise than cold.

Cynthia really starts to panic.

Cynthia:  What if… this never ends. What if it’s 100 degrees… forever?!

Cynthia reels in a haze of heat and anxiety. She lands on the ground again.

penelope kitten:  aack. help her.

Marcy tries to snap Cynthia out of her stupor.

Marcy:  Hey. Cindy. Hey.

Cynthia (crying in delirium):  What if I never get to wear my beautiful and bizarre Shimmer Sleeve Anorak that I bought in August from Anthro.

Marcy:  Hey. Cindy. Hey. You’re raving. Hey.

Cynthia (sniffling):  What?

Marcy:  You. Live. In… LOS ANGELES!!  – the most exciting place on earth. Everyone wants to live here. And you do! Now, get up and get a grip.

Cynthia (coming to):  Okay. You’re probably right.

Marcy:  And take some new photos. That outfit looks ridiculous.

    Such cute pictures!!! I’m sorry it’s still hot there, but you’re right, wearing nothing is the way to go. And try not to move around too much, just stay still. I’m hoping for cold weather for you just so you can wear that cute Anthro jacket!! Take pics when you do!

      I haven’t moved a muscle in over a month.

    OMG – I’ve been panicking about that, too!!!
    What if it NEVER cools off???
    How many times a day can I take a shower, then throw myself in front of the fan until I mold?
    Meanwhile, that outfit is adorable on you… (shut up, Marcy!)

      OMG – you’re panicking too? I’m scaaaaared. (whimpering) Got any ice cubes left? All of mine melted. (still whimpering)

    Right? I grew up in the midwest so I never get used to September being the hottest month of the year. It has GOT to cool off sometime. In the early mornings you can (for awhile) feel the fall coolness undercurrent. Yesterday I bought a “it’s the first day of autumn, dammit” pumpkin at Trader Joe’s. And… you looked cute in your outfit. At least we don’t have to wear fur coats like the cats.

      Vik – you must wake up at the crack of dawn to get that fall feeling! I am not a morning person and wake up to the blaring sunshine. I have to say the good news is that it has been cooling down at night which it wasn’t doing last month so there is a little relief.
      I like your pumpkin plan! Maybe I should get a pumpkin and pray at it like it’s the Goddess of Fall. 😀

      yes but cat fur never goes out of style. even when it’s hot. would you like some of mine? cindy just Furminated me.

    You have been on such a roll lately! You’ve been posting everyday, right? cool!

    I have one word to say to you in response to this post…at least you aren’t in Phoenix…although at least we had AC…

    I didn’t know you bought that jacket! I remember when you posted about it but I didn’t know you got it. It’s awesome!!!

    • Reply MarcyVeryMuch September 24, 2015 at 4:00 pm

      Trying for every day. Got 3 in last week and hopefully 4 in this week. Not sure I can do five a week. I need interns and the cats are no help.
      Yes – I bought that crazy jacket and can only stare at it longingly. Which I have been doing for the past 6 weeks. aaargghhh

        Yeah…mine say it’s because their paws are too big for the keyboard, but I know that’s not the reason… 🙂

          Our cats are a bunch of self entitled lazy bones. Good thing for them they are so cute!

    The hat, the shirt, the shoes and the sunglasses look very nice and the wearer is loveliest of all, but could you slice open the inner seams of the guchos and resew front-front and back-back? Then you’ll have a skirt which will better accommodate a breeze and will eliminate the gnawing question…is it pants that wanted to be a skirt or a skirt that wanted to be pants?

      Everybody hates my gauchos but they are tres chic and in style. I would look like a prairie woman if I turned them into a skirt.

      hey big momma i heard you can sew. i’ll nab them when she’s not looking and send them to you. or just throw them in the dumpster. whichever you want.

    I had to laugh at the photo of you lying on the sidewalk…

    I’ve been scraping frost off my car windows this week and full on winter is not too far away. I find myself thinking that I didn’t get enough time to wear all my pretty summer dresses before it got too cold.

      Liana! We need to trade places. For the next 4 or 5 weeks!
