Waking up today was really winter-like. The streets in Zurich were covered by snow and the weather – not surprisingly grey and foggy. We’re still in deepest freezing winter at the moment. You can notice that when you are looking at people’s mood as well.
…to be this one little thing that can make you feel unique. This quote from a jewelry designer based in LA explains the whole magic about it quite perfectly. And it’s not for women only; men do wear jewelry very often as well.
I definitely prefer the lovely summer months over the cold and dull winter season. Not because I don’t like the scenery or the colors only because I prefer warm temperatures. When you ask me about the feeling, the smell and the colors from November to February, the answer is almost as positive as the one for the summer months. It is just... different.
As the old saying goes: Keep your face to the sun and you will never see the shadow. Why? Well, that’s easy, isn’t it? If you face the sun, the shadow lies behind you and not next or even in front of you. And I totally agree with that. But it’s normal to see the shadow from time to time. And it’s not a bad thing at all. I think we sometimes even need to see the shadow to grow. And otherwise we take all the good things we’ve got and receive for granted.
Dandy fashion is not a new trend. Not at all. It’s a fashion trend, which is already lasting for many many years, even centuries. And it hasn’t changed that much. It seems as if todays modern gentlemen (I’ve talked about the definition already in a previous post) are aware of the „old“ elements of dandy fashion and reuse it today again. There are different kinds of the dandy fashion. The start of „dandyism“ was more over-the-top, which means a lot of jewelry, velvet and even wigs.
It’s getting too cold now for my leather jacket, unfortunately. Even if the sun is shining for some hours and still gives some warmth, a leather jacket is not enough anymore. However, I still see people running around in t-shirts at this temperature, so maybe they will even wear the leather jacket in winter. For photoshoots its absolutely fine, but for spending some time outside, definitely not.
