If you're still not quite sure where to start, then we have a great New Member's Guide with a lot of useful information about getting going. Don't hesitate to PM a member of staff (they have purple usernames) if you have any questions about SOTF and how to get started!

Let the games begin!

Vintage stores had the best sunhats. Lily could find sunhats in other places, of course. But vintage shops had the nicest ones. Flowers and bows and whatnot.

This one might have been reaching the realm of the absurd, though. It had so many flowers on top that it looked like she was wearing a bouquet. Lily gazed at a mirror and tugged the brim slightly, trying to see if that made it look any less shrub-like.

She didn't even notice there were other kids in here until Fiyori threw the jacket.

Phwump.

Lily turned at the noise, hands still holding the brim of the sunhat, and saw the jacket on the floor. Her eyebrows scrunched together slightly at the sight. She let go of the brim and walked over.

“Excuse me,” she said quietly, sliding past the girl who'd thrown it before picking the jacket up. She brushed it off before hanging it back on the clothing rack.

Leaving clothing this nice on the floor just didn't sit well.

Lily's mouth tightened a little at the sarcastic salute, but she didn't say anything. She instead started checking the items on the clothing rack she'd put the jacket on. Couldn't hurt. There were some nice clothes. Most of it wouldn't fit or wasn't her style, but it was still nice.

She listened absently to the conversation with one ear. She didn't mean to eavesdrop, but the conversation was right there. She only looked up again when she heard Fiyori—Fiyori, was it? Different grade, but vaguely familiar—speak.

Harsh words. If Lily had said something like that her grandmother would have lectured her for several minutes.

Lily tilted her head a little, staring at Fiyori with her eyebrows scrunched together again for a moment. Then she looked at the jumpsuit Nadia(?) was holding for a moment, considering it carefully, before speaking.

“It's not bad. Green's a good colour.” Lily left out the part about it reminding her of a tablecloth.

As she spoke, she realised she was still wearing the ridiculous 'more plastic flowers than hat' sunhat and removed it, tucking the hat behind her back, before trying to neaten her severe hat hair with her fingers.

Fiyori had noticed the hat. Hurrah.

Lily hesitated for a moment, keeping the hat behind her back as she did so, before reluctantly handing it over. “It's not mine. It's from the hat rack.”

As she passed Fiyori the hat, wondering if she would get it back in one piece, she examined the new article of clothing that Nadia was holding.

“That one's cute.” Lily didn't feel authorized to say more than that. Nadia seemed like she knew things about clothing. Meanwhile, Lily had been wearing a bouquet on her head. That wasn't even going into the baggy sweater she wore, one of the ones her brother had said looked like 'the stuff that Santa's elves would throw out.'

Easter parade? “I know it's over-the-top. I was just trying it.”

Nadia was away already, looking for something else. Oh well. Lily looked after her for a moment before Fiyori called her attention back with a question.

“Me? Hats.”

Lily looked up (it involved a significant amount of neck craning) and gazed at Fiyori, now wearing the hat. She did cut a distinctive figure, hat or no. The hat only emphasized it.

“It does look silly. But it's very distinctive.” The corner's of Lily's mouth twitched upwards. “Everyone will look at the hat and not at you. If you wore it in class, no-one would notice if you drew or read comics instead of working. There's uses.”

That was... quite the mental image.

Lily let out a quiet snort before saying, “Might work. Wouldn't try it out on the main street. But it might work.”

She turned to look at Nadia, crossing her arms as she gazed thoughtfully at the shirt-dress. She didn't have the faintest idea about what looked good in photos or not. Denim was blue, and blue was... kind of like green. It was probably fine, though.

Lily nodded after a few moments. “Looks good. But you know more about the photography side than I do.”

Lily hadn't exactly meant to end up following Nadia around the store like this. All she'd wanted to do was pick up a jacket from the floor and try and curb Fiyori's rather blunt opinions. But she hadn't finished with the hats, and she'd left the beanie she'd been wearing when she came in over there somewhere. So she followed, glancing at Fiyori and mirroring her shrug.

A boy from school appeared, out of nowhere it seemed. At least he was polite. But... well...

Lily glanced down at the bright yellow fabric he was holding. She gazed at it rather obviously for a few moments before realising what they were. She spent another couple of seconds still staring at it, eyebrows raised.

She wondered if it was her civic duty to warn him against wearing them. She could cite the stains, so as to not imply anything bad about his taste in clothing style.

Instead, Lily turned her head and started looking around for where she'd left her hat, pretending she hadn't seen. The obvious determination to look anywhere but at the yellow booty shorts made the effort somewhat transparent.

Lily looked away to be polite and when she looked back he was fleeing in the other directions. ...Well, alright, then.

“Uh. ...Yes. Onto the hats,” she agreed slowly, after marveling at the boy's speed.

When she went to turn back to the hats, however, the phone in her pocket started ringing. That little generic beepy ringtone that she'd set to indicate that her parents were calling, as was their annoyingly regular custom.

If she ignored it, they might have a heart attack. Lily quickly grabbed her beanie from where she'd left it and jammed it back on her head.

“I'm sorry, I have to take this. It was nice meeting you,” she said, trying to speak fast without being rude, before leaving the store so she could talk without annoying any other customers.
