22 In Misc


Working in the park  before Christmas.  Wearing Moschino safety pin coat and Bottega Veneta  patent boots from several years ago.

I absolutely love these boots.

Jane and I start traveling Wednesday, and we are all over the place till mid February.  I’m going to try and get a packing post done.  Packing for 5 days and 2 different cities is challenging–let’s see how I do.

Are we all glad the holidays are behind us??  Hooray!!  I hope everyone had a nice one!

    Love your outfit posts!
    I find tons of inspiration. Thank you.

    & a little question. Jane wore a pair of ‘Rugby pants’ in one of her recent post that you also bought. Is Rugby a brand? I can seem to find the pants online.

    i look forward to your packing post- nice to see how others do it. always something to learn.

    that coat!! boots!! I’d love a pair of black patent leather boots, if i didn’t have this weird association thing in my head (patent boots ON ME = firefighter…santa claus….note that i said “on me”.) seeing yours, however, they so do NOT look like the above-mentioned! 🙂

    What a wonderful winter-y outfit! The safety pins become a wild snowflake/Christmas star.

    There’s a great article about Tomas Maier and Bottega Veneta in this week’s New Yorker magazine— you should check it out.

    I adore that scarf. I have a similar one from BCBG Max Azria. I love it. So big and warm. I am traveling too until early Feb. I can’t wait for it to slow down. I am glad the Holidays are over but will be even more glad when January is over. Safe travels.
