feeling black

I don't really go in for the crazy Halloween decor that's around these days. For me, a bowl of gourds, or mini white pumpkins or even apples is all you need to set an autumnal mood. Don't like scary movies. Don't like scary decorating. But there is something sinister-meets-horn-of-plenty about the tableau above that I like. I think I like it mostly because it seems like a massive achievement in styling artistry. Socks are knocked off. The image is from Blackman Cruz, a cool LA shop with a rather dark aesthetic -- literally and figuratively. I feel sad today. I guess this happens sometimes...
