Behold.

The majesty of a foggy day. Everything is elusive, unclear and soft. I can always rely on the enjoyment I derive from such days, a happy byproduct of severe fluctuations in temperature. Or whatever reason the scientists have come up with to explain fog; its presence is as mysterious as its effects.

Since I’m currently battling the negative externalities of nesting season, choosing to capture the beauty of the world around me proved an effective emotional pacifier. And yes, I know it’s the holidays. People who date each other want to do things like nap and other indoor activities. People who don’t date anyone also want to stay in and nap. And watch movies.

Or whatever.

And it’s not like I hate inside time, I just mostly dislike it because it’s usually not as awesome as outside time.

Spending too much time indoors makes me feel like a wild animal. I already spend tons of time indoors at work all day. I have a need to be expressive. Outside. Also, I got snow boots this year, which has really revolutionized my outdoor winter experience. Maybe the people of Boston need to prioritize getting winter boots and an appropriate winter puffy jacket?

Anyway look at more photos of cool buildings. I’ve been taking lots of pictures of my environment lately. How can you not when the world is so beautiful? Plus taking pictures and walking around aimlessly is a great distraction from…

NESTING SEASON.

I’ll get over it eventually.

I’ve been loving my new camera lately.

Thank you.

Gods of iPhone in your wonder and glory.

Let’s see how this WordPress app works!

Is it just me, or are beautiful sunsets, lights and water wonderlands following me?

What do they want with me?

Lanvin. LANVIN.

6 Nov

Something truly exciting is happening. Lanvin has decided to become a guest designer for H&M‘s Winter 2010 collection.

Lanvin is one of those art deco fashion houses that started with one woman who wanted to jazz things up for her and hers back in the day. Think of a more expressive Coco Chanel. She brought feminine embroidery, beautiful pastel-ey beadwork and plunging necklines to the landscape of 20’s fashion.

Behold:

Lanvin 1924 (both)

So back to H&M: The collection, and trust when I say this, is beautiful. Or you can see for yourself here!

But my god is it beautiful. Its loaded with ruffles and super feminine mini dresses. It has fur. It has animal patterned trench coats. It has men’s clothes! Really adorable sleek men’s suits. And. Best of all. Lipstick.

The truly distinctive thing about Lanvin is that the expressions of femininity are actually very much tied to the notion of the girl and the whimsy of youth, and I think this isn’t lost to too many designers even nowadays. Especially when you take into account Miu Miu and Prada, Marc Jacobs, and, to an extent, John Galliano…or new designers like Erin Fetherston or Luella. This idea of portraying the figure they see when designing a collection as a girl is most fascinating.

It is a woman. It is a girl. Many chose the woman. There is a seriousness associated with the woman. The woman is advanced, quietly alluring, conditioned, sometimes somber. The girl is not, she is uncalculating, playful and disarming. Her charm is effervescent.

The Newbury Street store is the only location in Boston that will feature the Lanvin collection. It comes out on November 20th.

I may have to take work off. And I don’t care who knows it.
