It’s been raining all week here in Los Angeles. Funny thing is, I just returned from San Francisco where it was 85 degrees and sunny all week. It’s normally vice versa, but I kind of like the dramatic turn. Growing up in Houston, I got pretty used to the rain and thunderstorms and it was business as usual. But here in LA everyone gets a little melancholy and things start to slow down a bit when it starts to rain. It gets a little werid. So I figured why not look for something to post that is bright and cheerful but also dramatic, only in a different way. Couture close-ups courtesy of an old issue of Nylon. Lace, beads, fringe, ruffles and corsets; the right kind of drama to brighten the day.
