Turn, turn, turn
reindeer pins, noses glowing red courtesy of a 1.55V watch battery, stuck on lapels, and little foil-wrapped gift boxes dangling off of lobes are down the road. people incredibly buy, and then, apparently immune to regret, save and revisit these sartorial season markers. you know it's holiday time when the person shoving ahead of you in line is wearing a red and green striped scarf. but beyond festive, merry-making muffs, what about just recognizing that summer is over (whenever it is, wherever you live)? put the hunt for a sun dress on hold, stop trying to figure out if you can put on moisturizer under or over sunblock (well, we're supposed to use the stuff year-round, so does anyone know??), make sure you've got some tea in the house... i'm looking forward to bracelets on over cardigan sleeves (i love love that), and i am thinking about short red nails, deep simple red - i usually don't get around to it, but it lets me know that my gears are shifting and fall is creeping into my head.
do you, stylistically speaking, mark the change in seasons?
