“it is not the fashion to see the lady the epilogue…” // rosalind / as you like it / shakespeare
it amuses me to no end, that when the freeze sets in, is precisely when spring is irrationally timed to be ushered in. sartorially speaking, that’s a bit of a paradox – a total head wreck. considering it took so long for the cold to arrive, i suppose now – seeing shorter hemlines, bare arms and the quest for sunshine makes it all seem a bit cruel. alas, it’ll come back to us sooner or later. (75 days, give or take.)
and though i’m tempted by springier ideas – i’m not lured by a lull of pastels, or diaphanous midi-skirts; but more so by the mannish, the sharp and severe. it’s still springlike, if my ankles show and my arms are bare, i don’t need florals and pleats, right?
