back in the red. (i realize that this statement may mean something more than that i am back in red clothes! for the record, i only mean it in the sense that i am back in red clothes.)

i wore a favourite colour of a certain little girl i know: pink. of course, as i have come to expect, in a rundholz world, it isn't pink. it is raspberry and lichee. the pinks of a "grown up".

i know that summer has only just begun for me, but it has been so hot and humid that i am so done with summer (even though i know that the end of summer means the beginning of the march to winter and i am not fond of winter). basically, i do not do well with hot and humid ... physically. to deal, i hang out in air conditioned spaces. which i hate, because i like to be outside. so, yes, i am really done with summer. bring on fall. of course, what i want where weather is concerned matters naught.

some pieces of clothing look a lot more interesting from the back than from the front. when i am wearing such a piece of clothing, i like to approach life backwards. it gives me a different perspective on many things.

i love this chiffon-y dress from last spring/summer. the gingham version i purchased last spring/summer. it was my first choice of available versions. there was also a floral print version that i wanted but didn't buy. but i think that my having that floral print version must have been destiny, because i found it on sale this spring/summer and scooped it up!

one of the first rundholz pieces that "i had to have" is this dress. if i recall correctly, i wasn't a hundred percent rundholz convert at the time. this dress appealed to my girl scout dressing sensibilities. could you imagine what rundholz uniforms would be like?

just when i thought that that would be it for the season, some "new arrivals" come into my rundholz source. as it turns out, two of these "new arrivals" (one of which i am wearing here) helped to fill a gap in my spring/summer rundholz wardrobe (hard to believe that there may be gaps, i know, but it is true): light weight (read "cotton jersey") black jackets.

some weeks are just great dressing weeks. the outfits just fall together, easily, one after another. i love these weeks. i wish i could pinpoint what leads to these weeks. if i could arrange it so that whatever it is that leads to these weeks is a constant in my life, i would definitely "make it so" (a small trekkie reference there ... my apologies ... i just couldn't resist).

just woke up and this quite ordinary outfit popped into my head, so i wore it. remarkably, i didn't revile it (which, lately, is usually what has been happening with outfits that pop into my head upon waking). of course, what might have "saved" this outfit is the fact that it isn't entirely "new". with the exception of the l/s top, i wore this outfit quite a few times last s/s. so it had familiarity going for it. of course, had i ended up reviling the outfit because of the "new variable" -- the l/s top -- it wouldn't have been the first time a familiar outfit with a slight tweak bombed in my estimation.

i think that the time has come to admit, mostly to myself, that i am not always able to determine exactly how something depicted in a picture, particularly on a website, will appear "in real life". i recently purchased a cross-body bag online. i thought, based on the specifications of its size given on the shop website, that the bag would be of a particular size. when it arrived, even though its dimensions were exactly as specified, it seemed a lot smaller that i thought it would be. maybe it is that things that i want from an online shop have a larger than life presence for me and reality never lives up to my expectations.

in this outfit, i have been described as a black rose hung upside down. i like that image. and, speaking of black roses, i had a black day recently. i was stalking an older style of rundholz boot on the interwebs just waiting until my next pay day to pounce on them. every day, i would check that they were still there. i had high hopes because they were a sole pair of winter boots in my (largish) size 10 (40). they were around for quite a long time (as far as coveted rundholz footwear is concerned): two weeks. every day that they were there, my hopes grew. then ... they were gone. gasp! sob! i guess that is what happens when you try to be responsible and wait for a pay day. looking on the bright side (as a good friend once taught me to do): those boots were obviously not meant for me. something better that is still out there was meant for me.

getting closer to reading oscar wilde's the canterville ghost. having declared my intention to read it, i have now come into possession of a copy of oscar wilde's short stories, including (yes) the canterville ghost. next step: cracking open the book and settling in to read the story.

there are a few outfits and pieces of clothing that i have always desired to have and to sport*. a pair of grey sweat pants and a grey sweat shirt (be it a pullover or a hoodie) -- a grey sweat suit -- have/has been on my wish list pretty much since i became "clothing conscious" (around the time that i turned ten years old). now, with this rundholz black label rendition of the grey sweat suit, i can check that item off my wish list. hurray! now on to the next item: the white t-shirt and jeans combo.

*accidental pun ... which will become obvious with the next sentence.

togetherness dress


these days i seem to be wanting to wear more rather than fewer clothes. here, i am wearing a one piece (yes, a onesie) and a dress. these pieces were presented to me separately. and, initially, i had tried them on separately. as much as i liked them worn separately, i only committed to purchasing them when i paired them up.

i am wearing the jumpsuit and the marco dress by kaliyana. my boots are the noon boot (box collection) by trippen.
