lately, i haven't been keen on mixing the two rundholz lines that i primarily purchase clothing from -- dip and black label. i have tended to wear all dip clothing or all black label clothing. that said, every once in a while, i do get hit by the mixing bug. i can't say why this happens and, because i tend to like the results, i can't say why this doesn't happen more often.

i am wearing rundholz mainline a/w 2017 (boots and ring), rundholz dip a/w 2017 (tops), rundholz black label a/w 2017 (skirt) and rundholz dip s/s 2017 (trousers).

i purchase a piece of clothing, certain footwear or a particular accessory online for one of two reasons. first, because i just love it. second, because i need to fill a gap* in my current stock (of clothing, footwear or accessories). if i buy something for the first reason -- because i love it -- i rarely experience disappointment. if i buy something for the second reason, disappointment does sometimes ensue: i thought the thing would complete an outfit, but, when it arrives at my house, it doesn't, usually because i couldn't get a good sense of the thing's dimensions and measurements from the photos online and, when i put the thing on, the proportions are all wrong. when this happens, more often than not, i will throw the thing into my stock (of clothing, footwear or accessories) and wait to see what happens. more often than not, the thing ends up serving a purpose other than the one i envisioned for it before i got it. and everyone (and every thing) lives happily ever after. of course, i could resolve to never buy anything online just to fill a gap. i could resolve to only buy things online that i love (regardless of whether i also envision them filling a gap). but, realistically, i know i could never keep such a resolution. besides, as i said, things usually work out quite well in the end.

*perhaps i should say "perceived gap", because, while i may see a gap, i think i would have to admit that it may only be me who sees it. any gap is very much a subjective, not an objective, phenomenon.

the second new outfit of the week.

i am wearing rundholz mainline a/w 2017 (boots) and rundholz black label a/w 2017 (sweater dress/tunic and trousers). unseen, beneath the sweater dress/tunic, because one layer is never enough for my winters, i am wearing a dress/tunic (rundholz black label s/s 2016) and a oversized top (rundholz black label a/w 2017).

this week, i was fortunate enough to conjure up two new outfits (or concoctions, as someone recently described them). this was the first. not all that dissimilar from last last week's new outfit, but still ... .

i am wearing rundholz mainline a/w 2017 (boots and ring) and rundholz black label a/w 2017 (dress, trousers and cardi).

i have decided that if i can put together even one new outfit per week, i am doing okay.

am wearing rundholz mainline a/w 2017 (pullover and boots), rundholz black label a/w 2016 (trousers and jacket) and rundholz black label a/w 2015 (dress).

some more of that wonderful pea green! the skirt, made of cotton jersey, is a bit too lightweight for my winters, so, recently, i have taken to wearing some black trousers underneath it (from my rundholz dip s/s 2017 collection) -- although not on the day that these photos were taken.
