The Marvels and Metaphors of Spring

Spring is, of course, the perfect metaphor for re-birth, and it finds me particularly ready to shed a few layers, both physically and emotionally! All around us the earth is starting to re-awaken, and just as the flowers start to bloom, my own dreams and desires seem to flower with possibility as well. What may have appeared like delays over this last season were not necessarily denials. This new season certainly has taken its time getting here this year, but with it, our thoughts, vibrations, and dreams also start to manifest, presenting a bright new palette of possibility.

I’m having a blast during this transitional point in the season, enjoying all the changes and looking forward to some fabulous unfolding—I hope you are too!

In a contemplative mood, I’m pictured by Scott McBee, I’m wearing the perfect Spring transitional ensemble: silk, cashmere, and suede…Tom Ford silk brown and ivory plaid pants, ivory cashmere turtle neck sweater and saddle leather loafers, Gucci pieced cognac suede jacket, vintage Rolex watch, Uniqlo ivory cotton socks, Tom Ford “Cyrille” sunglasses, and my fragrance is Tom Ford’s Lavender Palm

    Hi James,

    The coat and the turtleneck go absolutely beautifully together. I wear the light suede jacket/light turtleneck all the time. This outfit would look nice with jeans too for a casual, European look. And the glasses you’re wearing make you look very 70’s chic!! 🙂

    Valentino B,

    I just adore 70’s chic!

    The best possible conflation of decadence, glamor and elegance!

    My Dear Wendy,

    Here is to BIG Dreams and Desires and their manifestation NOW!

    Light and Love

    My Dear Harrison,

    You would certainly know!

    Thank You!

    Can’t wait to see you!



  7. Terrific photograph – congratulations both to the subject and to Mr McBee.

  8. James Andrew says:

    My Dear Robert,

    Thank You!

    I am so blessed to have Mr McBee and his very capable eye!

    I am devastated by your – Summerhill – story , what an incredible loss.

    Hoping we can somehow sort out our Irish Georgian Society trip this May.

    Love your whole outfit, looking gorgeous as usual! Neutral and Earth colors are always a right guess and a success… I especially like the suede jacket and the degradè loafers. A true Italian-British/ British-Italian overseas in NYC. But that’s not something new! =)

    Regards from Spain!
