Wool coat

Yohji Yamamoto wool coat The one item from my recent TRR  shopping I kept is this coat. I'd gotten rid of my old black wool coat several years ago. It wasn't until last year that I really missed having a heavy-but-not-snow-storm-worthy wool coat. The tailoring of this coat once again reminded me of why Yohji-sama... Continue Reading →

Waterproof

Acne Studios sweater - Yohji Yamamoto suit pant - Frye Carly Chukkas I am so glad I waterproofed these suede shoes. Granted, they aren't the warmest, but waterproofing them has helped immensely. While walking in to work, post snow storm with lots of snowy, slushy puddles everywhere  - I thought I stepped on a solid... Continue Reading →

Working out in winter.

Little steps

Yohji Yamamoto shirt and skirt - Limi Feu sweater - Nisolo shoes This skirt forces me to make little steps and today that's a good thing. It's got the right structure to keep me in work mode and I found myself taking time to think more about the work I was doing. I also tore... Continue Reading →

Being still

Yohji Yamamoto sweater - Grana tank top - Uniqlo pant - Fog Linen house slippers I'm posting this weekend photo simply because Michelle's comment about this sweater being special and only for lounging around proved to be exactly true. I've been fighting off the plague making the office rounds and for the past week I've... Continue Reading →

Ruckenfigur

Banana Republic cashmere sweater - Yohji Yamamoto skirt - Frye Carly Chukkas Rückenfigur: A figure seen from behind used as a compositional device in art. I was thinking today about how we always show the front of our outfits, but what about the back? Since most details for clothes tend to be on the front... Continue Reading →
