The weather is transitioning all over the world and often in a very volatile state. I haven’t broken out the gloves just yet, but I am ready to go whenever the time may come.
Over the weekend I was able to catch up with a few friends—finally making time for those awaited long-distance phone calls and Skype sessions all filled with loads of joy and laughter throughout every conversation. It’s funny how swift a few hours can go by when you’re in good company, and fond memories are shared. It’s even better when there are reenactments of facial expressions to go along with those great tales of nostalgia.
This was a comfortable outfit that I wore to meet up with a family friend to help her with fabric shopping, as she’s preparing to make her son’s Halloween costume. And, since leather already has an edge to it and naturally exudes a tough aesthetic, I decided to play with the idea of adding artistic and softer elements.
The addition of camouflage came to mind when I wanted to wear my lace skirt, so I took my abstract knit top and layered it with my leather trousers for a different look. Typically you see camouflage in the traditional motif, but I was really fond of this abstract knit version. It also reminded me of a globs of ink and puzzle pieces … only colour blocked in army-like hues.
