You make me happy when skies are grey

February 28, 2007

sunshine

Electric blue! Glorious matte silk! Shirtdress with elastic waist! Perfect for: talking and drinking into the wee hours on a humid summer’s night, an afternoon at the county fair/weekend farmer’s market, cycling to work on a crisp morning with a cute blazer and white oxfords on a Dutch bicycle, an early evening stroll on a country dirt road with a tattered old hoodie, a summer month spent driving across Canada in an air conditioner-less 1983 Pontiac Acadian. Curious how a mere article of clothing can conjure up much pointed scenarios. (Despite having a habit of collecting pieces not for everyday life but for flights of fancy, I could definitely imagine wearing this Sunshine and Shadow dress every single day).

    electric blue silk? magic.
    i can imagine outside brunches, the kind with mimosas (not that lack of perfect clothing has ever stopped me there)
