February is a tough month mentally, don’t you think? Winter is very much still rearing its bitterly cold head at a moment when we are all frozen to our cores and desperately craving spring. But alas, it’s also a very short month that propels us much closer to new foliage on the bare limbs outside, pending blooms, and that bit of warmth we’ve all been ready to welcome in!
I myself have mixed feelings about Valentine’s Day (it tends to make a lot of people feel left out, and in some ways cheapens the concept that we should love and appreciate those around us each day, not just on nationally mandated and commerce-driven holidays). BUT, I also CANNOT deny any day that encourages that we surround ourselves with flowers. Flowers make the world a better place, and if you don’t believe that, then please forward all your flowers to me in the future please (wink wink) — it will be a win/win!
Before we move on to this month of March (where one General Gazpacho will be celebrating his birthday!), let’s take a stroll down the memory lane that is Feb. 2015.
- This beautiful collection launched in the MV Shop, and there are still a few of my absolute favorites available! Somebody get this classic 1960s coat and turn some heads immediately. And this 1930s top. And then this sweater for those moments where you want to lounge around drinking coffee, feeling cozy, and looking as casual-cool as can be (oh, this ole thing…?).
- NYFW happened (along with London Fashion Week) which gave me all new inspiration for looking pulled together in frigid temps. Because heavens knows I’ve been bopping around the city in some not-so-attractive snow boots and sleeping-bag-style coats in order to keep myself from freezing into an icicle when I venture outdoors.
- This fun post took a look back at all my favorite Oscar looks since its inception in 1929—can you believe a couple of these talented actresses also made their own dresses? #impressed
- After the announcement that Millay Vintage now offers styling and interior design services, I’m super thrilled to say I’ve got some amazing projects in the works and look forward to diving right in and sharing what I can over here on this here journal. Stay tuned!
Onward and upwards friends — hello to you March!
