Fall vs Spring

when i was browsing through the latest spring modern sale at bukowskis (they really bring me endless amounts of joy, that auction house) i was quite taken by all the beautiful flower still life pieces. i thought back to how some of my favourite collections from the autumn 2011 shows were so bright and colourful, and knew it would make for a nice comparison – especially since i am noticing that the northerners are really enjoying the coming spring and we, conversely, are really loving the coming of autumn. the other day i stood in the sun and actually relished the warmth as opposed to cursing it. this really is the best time of year.

NORTH / SOUTH

thought i’d highlight the best of both worlds – since you notherners are slowly skipping into spring, and us southerners are steadily creeping into autumn. i’m sure we are both eager for a change … i know i am.
