Raw, adjective: 9. disagreeably damp and chilly, as the weather or air
Slightly obsessed with winter white these days. I've always had a weird thing for monochromatics, but there's something particular about winter white. I've got this great sort of 1960s white swing coat from a few seasons ago that I whip out every January and laden with ivory scarves and gloves and cloches and live in until about March. You can roll outta bed wearing last night's makeup, throw that shit on over your pajamas, and still look like a million bucks.
Anyway, it just so happens that the quirky and charming Bill Cunningham of the NYT Style section did a little feature on winter whites in his latest "On the Street" interactive slideshow. If you don't keep up with his regular postings, you should. They're weirdly specific and provincial; adorably so, really. Watch it.
