the first snow of the winter, on my street in ukrainian village. i am trying to wear my mustard coat as much as possible before it gets too cold in chicago to wear it. another thing? this dress literally fell apart over the day i wore it. that’s the danger of vintage – the seams can come apart if you look at them too hard, so since it was disintegrating around me i pretty much wore this coat all day as a part of my ensemble. good thing my office is chilly.
giving ruger a little pat before he runs off to sniff at all the weird cold stuff on the ground. it’s a first snow tradition.
the coat kept me warm when i met two of my good buddies out for drinks later in the evening. i used to work with these dudes 10 years ago. old friends are a good accessory, no?
outfit details: brown knit dress was purchased on ebay and is now in pieces. i can’t decide whether it’s worth fixing or not. i’m kind of mad at it; moccasin boots are by report and i have had them for years and years; tan tights are hue; mustard coat with asymmetrical buttons is by lux; suede hat with giant fur pompom is vintage and thrifted
song inspiration: “lemon world” by the national. man i love this band. i’m still finalizing my annual ‘best of’ mix and there will definitely be a song from this album on it. it’s just picking which one…it gets harder the more i love an album to pick just one song. and this live version might be enough to push ‘lemon world’ – it brings the beautiful, no doubt.
