the secret wardrobe life of wardrobetales no. 10 (rundholz edition)

















photo nos. 5, 6, 13, 14, 15 and 16: i was super excited when i learned that rundholz was injecting some red into the a/w collection. while i have reverted to my pre-blog dark girl roots and i don't expect that i will ever be that rainbow girl that i was three or four years ago when i began the journey of documenting my outfits on this here blog, red being my all-time favourite hue, i couldn't resist purchasing some red rundholz. here is the big question: does it still look like black?

photo nos. 7,  8, 10, 11 and 12: last a/w, i needed them cropped. so, i rolled them up. this a/w i want them bunched up over my boots. interesting, no? 

photo no. 9: some of my new pleather (or faux leather) pieces.

i am wearing clothing and accessories by rundholz (dip and black label). my cherry red chelsea boots are doc martens. all other footwear is by john fluevog.

Yes, yes – a thousand times yes – to luscious, gorgeous blacks and spices sandwiched between deep, dark, chocolatey hair and footwear wafers. You are looking absolutely fantastic here: just comfortable, and interesting, and with that lovely beetle-like shape with some of the outfits, and always like 'only you' (as opposed to the conventional wardrobe/outfit approach that proclaims nothing more than 'me too'.)

Hmmm. I wonder if you'll rethink revisiting Oz next spring with the Rundholz Black Label SS16 collection, which features fruity colours such as strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, lychee, and melon (plus of course, black, white and grey… but mostly printed with numbers and letters in contrasting colours). I will likely give that collection a (near) complete pass, but on the plus side, I’ve – surprisingly – come away with several dozen Rundholz pieces this season, though it still remains one of my least fave Rundholz Black Label/DIP/Mainline winter collections ever.

For several years now, I’ve been buying much of my wardrobe online, including about 90% of all Rundholz and Trippen purchases. Not once have I returned an item obtained thusly, nor regretted a purchase. In fact, the few pieces in my wardrobe that were perhaps not the best choice (given all available options at the time), were those bought in person – usually last-minute decisions made toward the end of a shopping trip.

I very much hope that every one of your current and future online purchases will work out just as perfectly for you. Please do post more Rundholz soonest. Once again, we share many of the items pictured here (from this and previous seasons), and I’m excited about seeing your other AW15/16 selections. My Halloween treat this year? These exquisite Rundholz collection photos! Thank you!

I have been viewing your blog for over a year and I love your styling manner. Todays blog photo's and commentary really are a great summation of how you are enjoying your wardrobe expression to the fullest. Thank you for sharing photos and views on a "living" wardrobe style.

Oh, so beautiful. The third of the first set of red (blazer, dress, pants)... aMAzing!

brenda: with your comments about the rundholz 2016 s/s collection, you have definitely piqued my curiosity. when there isn't much on offer in a collection for me, i am without doubt disappointed. but, sometimes, it forces me to take a hard look at my existing collection and to find within it some fresh new pairings. i am finding myself doing that with one of my other preferred labels this a/w. sadness and happiness at the same time! and, thank you for your kind words!

Oh boy!
The red.
The skinny trousers.
The grey.
The red!
Oh boy.

Oh, and to answer your question: yes! (In my opinion).

I absolutely adore the deep red, almost claret, ensemble. It's luscious, I could just drink it up!
