it feels like ages since i posted. there have been so many times since my last post that i have wanted to post an early spring look with the caption, "spring has sprung", but, when i finally found some time to post, it didn't feel very spring-like outside and it felt false to claim that spring had sprung (even though, officially, it had). so i deferred posting. time and time again. finally, spring has gained an unbeatable lead in its battle with winter and i feel comfortable saying, "spring has sprung". so ... here is an early spring look. it blends items from the rundholz black label a/w collection just past, an old rundholz black label s/s collection and the new rundholz black label s/s collection. one review about the new rundholz black label s/s collection: i am thrilled that it included a cropped cardi, like the 2018 s/s collection. last year's cropped cardi featured significantly in my wardrobe ... until it became too warm to wear a cardi. i am repeating that trend this year ... with this year's cropped cardi. one observation about the new rundholz black label s/s collection: it seems to work really well with the rundholz black label s/s collection from 2015. something that will become evident (i hope) in future posts.

i am wearing rundholz black label s/s 2019 (cropped cardi), rundholz black label a/w 2018 (jacket and sneaks) and rundholz black label s/s 2015 (dress, cardi and trousers).

here is an outfit that i wanted to wear many times throughout the winter. but it just was too darned cold to wear it without hiding it beneath multiple layers. and then the print on the dress would have been a secret. so i set it aside. to wear when it was warm enough that multiple layers weren't a necessity. and i didn't need to keep any secrets.

i am wearing rundholz mainline a/w 2018 (boots), rundholz dip a/w 2018 (dress and trousers), rundholz mainline s/s 2018 (bracelet) and rundholz mainline s/s 2017 (harness).

what's new? not much. it's still a/w 2016 in my little corner of the universe. (although ... while i may be wearing clothes from a/w 2016, i am starting ... slowly ...  to acquire clothes from the s/s 2019 collections.)

the good thing about holding on to clothes from rundholz collections from years gone by is that, when i feel i need a bit of a change from the current year's collections, i have those other collections to dip into. at this time of year, i always seem to need some different clothes to perk me up a bit. it's great that i can simply "shop" my own closet to get them!

i can't remember ever saying no to a pouf skirt. and even though sitting in this pouf skirt presented me with some challenges (challenges i don't remember ever having to deal with before) -- the skirt sort of inflates when you sit on it -- i don't think the experience of owning and wearing this pouf skirt will dissuade me from saying no to a pouf skirt in the future.

i love rundholz sneaks. of course, in the winter time, they aren't very practical, if there is snow on the ground. because of this, this a/w, i held off on acquiring this season's sneaks until sales time. then i dove right in and got anthra, vert and black sneaks (as luck would have it, all different styles).

i have noticed a pattern in how i wear clothes throughout a "season". at the beginning, i am eager to explore different outfits. it is exciting everyday to think about the next new outfit that i will wear. as the season goes on, and we hit the peak of the season and the weather is at its most extreme, i  settle in to wearing a few or several outfits that are the most comfortable, and i rotate through them ... over and over again. as the end of the season nears, i just don't know what to wear. i am tired of everything in my closet. oddly, this is when i at my most experimental. outfits are either a complete disaster or i am at my most creative. currently, i am in stage two.

i like all my rundholz clothes. but there is a special place in my heart for those pieces that are made from french terry. to me they are dress up versions of sweat pants and sweat shirts. some weeks, i live in these pieces.
