Storming Out

The aftermath of the California rainstorm offered surprisingly reasonable conditions for dressing up in my formulaic, unusually-ladylike-for-a-teenager way. I went about engaging the formula this time with a new part wool blazer that fools the eye into seeing orange sometimes and red at all other times. If fabrics had opposites, wool and silk would be just that. The idea of forcing them into rare situations, that is, so close to each other, is quite exciting and boosts the texturally classic, vintage feel going on here. The equation is made complete with a standard skirt that I suppose is unstandardized with its little schoolgirl pleats.
