sometimes stalking online purveyors of rundholz pays off. last year, i missed out on getting the boots that i am wearing here in black. i was happy to have gotten these pea green ones. i wore them quite a bit with my pea and olive green outfits. but, as someone who wears a lot of black outfits, a black pair would have come in handy. unfortunately, i miscalculated the popularity of this style, particularly in black (seriously, what was i thinking?), waited too long before deciding to buy them and, before i knew it, they were gone. poof! just like that. so imagine my delight when i saw a black pair of these babies in my size pop up recently in an online shop. i didn't wait to "add to shopping cart". i am looking forward to the wearing them! not that these pea green ones wouldn't work with some of this season's greens!

sometimes you want to look (or feel) like you are wearing soft sculpture. so you put something like this on. and then it rains. unexpectedly. or maybe you just forgot to check the daily forecast before setting out for the day, so you would have known better than to wear soft sculpture that day. of course you don't have an umbrella with you. not that an umbrella would help given how hard the rain is coming down. you try to decide what's worse: that your soft sculpture will get wet or that your shoes will get wet. you decide that getting your shoes wet will be worse than getting the soft sculpture wet. so you try to wait out the downpours under shelters, walk outside only when it is raining lightly and avoid puddles at all costs (who cares if passersby look at you funny when you jump from one side of the sidewalk to the other and immediately back again -- you have shoes to save and it's not like you aren't watching out for and avoiding running into them). you survive the day, soft sculpture and shoes relatively unscathed. but your desire to look (and feel) like you are wearing soft sculpture is dampened. at least for the moment.

a new dress from s/s 2016. meaning: i bought it in s/s 2016 but didn't wear it until just now. when it comes to rundholz, i have to say that i am a bit of a collector (no, it's true!). unlike with many other labels whose clothes i buy for wearing -- i like to say that i am a consumer of the label -- if i don't wear a piece of clothing within two years, even a year, of buying it, i am unlikely to ever wear it and i know that i can safely (and i often do) remove it from my closet -- with rundholz, i buy things because i like them. period. i don't particularly worry about wearing them because i somehow know that, if i don't wear something immediately, the time will come when i will wear it. this has been my experience with the label since i started buying it. which is why i call myself a collector of it. but, to be clear, i don't collect for the sake of collecting. i collect for the sake of wearing it ... either immediately or at some point in the future. (dizzy yet?) with this dress (as with some other pieces) it was all about timing. now was the right time.
