playing in traffic

I thrifted this jumper/dress last week - I think what appeals to me about it is how hard it is to wear.  What with the extreme cowl and sheep-like texture it was definitely a challenge to pull off. Decided to keep it simple with a grey t-shirt and London Fog trench. Street shots are always fun, especially when the traffic is coming right at you. This week was full of wanderings in the rain with drinks that were too strong and friends that somehow still live far away. Also watched Fatal Attraction for the first time. I loved the rawness and the 80s that came through. Should watch 80s films more often despite the hair. Ended the week being surprisingly moved by the experience of total strangers.

Beautiful day in Brooklyn. The plain front and cowl back of this dress are fun, and all the black provides the perfect backdrop to the harness. I made it out of a Forever21 necklace on a lonely boring saturday afternoon. The arm warmers are my first experiment with the rib knit, which I'm slowly getting the hang of. Can't have too much wool knit - more to come!  As for the tights I've decided that pink is my winter neutral, in a tight race with oatmeal of course. Add some much-needed furriness and there you have it.
