Adventures is Slush

Soon after one of the impressive snowfalls that hit New England recently all of it started to melt (a few days later it snowed again and this time it all froze over and was here to stay for good). This was my sartorial response to that initial melting: kooky rain boots, fingerless gloves, and shorts and tights.









boots: Laila Rowe / shorts: H&M / gloves: Aldo

I was also looking back through my archive of “inspiration” photos this evening and I came across this images from Dior’s Spring 2008 collection and was instantly overwhelmed by their beauty and Gustav Klimt themes.

I applaud you for getting dressed at all in all that bad weather you guys have been having in the northeast. I'd be curled up in a mens sweater on the couch! Glad to see you're sticking it to winter in your kooky boots!

And I have no idea why I haven't seen that Dior collection until now...Klimt is my favorite artist! The way the prints of the paintings are captured are incredible! So is the hair and makeup.
