This winter was definitely the season of grey for me. Looking through our archives, I wore that color more than any other over the past six months. My love affair with grey is nowhere near an end (it is the perfect combination of the absence of color and the absence of light, after all), but with spring firmly arrived, it’s time to invite some other colors to the party.
So here’s my send-off to grey.
Actually, I find elements of this outfit quite spring-like. The bare legs and draped layers are light and airy, and the overall effect feels very Grecian. And I don’t know about you, but I don’t think “winter” when I think Greece. I think Mamma Mia!. Obviously.
It’s the juxtaposition of dark colors and drapey layers that appeals to me most. So if this can’t be my spring outfit, let it be my Rite of Spring outfit, full of strong crescendos and crashing cymbals opposite moments of softness and sweetness.
Plus, both Disney’s Fantasia and my outfit draw our Rite of Spring inspiration from the prehistoric world. Because, let’s face it, I dressed like a Megalodon tooth today.
I’m just hoping none of you stormed away and started rioting in anger after seeing this outfit, like the audience did during the first performance of Stravinsky’s piece.
Need a Stravinsky-fashion connection stronger than my desire to dress like a fossil? Watch Coco Chanel and Igor Stravinsky.
