Outfit: Zara coat, Rick Owens jacket, Helmut Lang t-shirt, Petit Bateau sweat pants, Hermes cashmere shawl, Hermes Cape Cod watch and New Balance 420 sneakers
Having a minuscule closet means that there is no clear separation between spring/summer and fall/winter clothes. I don't have many summer clothes because 1) I have a better chance of winning the Lotto than having a guaranteed summer in the U.K every year 2) it's pointless to spend £££ on clothes that get worn only a few months of the year. Yup, I'm a cheapskate.
Since I'd spent gazillions (okay, I'm exaggerating but it WAS expensive) on this lightweight Rick Owens jacket (which makes my bat wings look skinny and long), I've decided it's wearable all year round. I'm working on getting the cost per wear down so that I can justify the spending. I will probably freeze into an ice block if I ever attempt to wear it as a jacket on a cold winter day but it'll serve as a great layering piece. Clearly, I'm demented but the "logical" rationale is justifiable. There are pros to wearing a leather jacket underneath your coat. It traps the heat and doubles as a windproof jacket. I was warm in a jiffy despite the dreary weather outside ("logical" explanation number 2).
Hmm.....one day, I'm going to regret showing the world a photo of myself in an old pair of sweat pants. But then again, I'm trying to keep it real here in my little corner of the blogosphere......... For those of you who thought that I blended rather well into the background of these pictures (your observation couldn't be more correct), check out my bright red sneakers instead. See? I'm learning to like colors. Errr......I mean color.
