According to the calendar, there are two weeks of summer left, but we all know that Labor Day weekend is when the season really ends. I figured I’d go to the beach and hide my depression about the coming cold months and shorter days with the help of a smiling Castelbajac skirt I got in July. Unfortunately, the zipper broke before I left the room and I had to cut the skirt off me! Another repair job for Jean at Ghost Tailor. I took the skirt to the beach anyway to photograph it.
I wasn’t a fan of the 100°-plus temperatures we had in New York this summer, but I’m definitely not a cold-weather person. As far as autumn/winter fashion goes, all those gray “draped” and “boyfriend” sweaters look baggy and blah to me. Really, I feel like July 4 was yesterday. Do the years go faster and faster or is it just me? At least there’s one benefit to my ever-increasing “time flies” feeling: it will be October in two minutes, December in 10 minutes and summer again before the day is done!
