Hello winter

I’m moving these blog photos indoors because it’s cold everywhere (I had to scrape ice off my car several times this week to go to work) – I know I complain quite about how cold it is in SF, but damn it’s cold. So I can’t even fathom those of you that live in and live on with ice and snow!

So see, something about bad weather makes me gravitate towards dark outfits again!

Jacket: old Forever 21, so this Splendid one is awesome (made in USA!) . Dress: Diane von Furstenberg, thrifted. Tights: Hue. Boots: Sam Edelman. Necklace: Vintage. Belt: Vintage. Watch: Vintage Bill Blass.

It’s funny because this little wall in our home is quickly undergoing lots of changes again. I found these posters hidden at work and brought them home with me because they were going to be trashed! Let’s see where they end up! I’m particularly drawn to this colorful portrait of Rodin’s The Thinker – the statue is at the Legion of Honor here in San Francisco and it’s pretty striking to see it in person. So this pea colored background it came with is quite interesting.

    That poster is really great! And so is the outfit (I love that jacket). I’ve also had to move my photos indoors (it was -42 C with the wind chill last week!!!!).

    I can relate to the cold and can’t express how much I did not want to take outfit photos yesterday! Freezing temps are not my friend.

    I do love this look, and with the white and green, and pretty print, it does not read as being a dark, dreary winter look at all.

    Man, how are your indoor shots so well-lit and pretty? I love this dress.

      I’m replying to you via my phone so I can attach the current lighting situation in this room. We took off the ugly 80′s sconces off that ugly gold chandelier. I replaced the regular bulbs with these cut Crystal ones from Lowes and the room looks like daylight when turned on! It’s awesome and does the moulding justice.

        Wow, those look pretty amazing! I will have to look into them for our apartment. Thanks!

    I am really digging how professional and yet polished and, well, posh your outfit looks. Rather young and hip, which I really struggle to achieve whilst being work-ish.

    I love this dress on you – has an awesome retro feel to it!
