These very striking images by French artist, Nathalie Talec, demonstrate extreme style for extreme environments. Her narrative (portrait) explorations of expedition dressing and other-worldly travel conditions suggests a whole new aesthetic for our shifting climates and home fronts.

I love this window in my neighborhood in Sofia. I pass it every time I walk down the hill to go shopping at the market or to do errands in the bitter cold. The layers speak volumes and the palette is so true to the atmosphere here.

Yes, we are contending with the Gazprom/Ukraine gas cut-off crisis here in Sofia, Bulgaria. Lots of layering and preparations underway for the possible loss of heat and electricity. Regardless, experiments with recycled silk fabric that I have been cutting and crocheting into rope or 'reins of sorts' makes the home front feel warmer. Today I also sliced open a pomegranate that had been sitting on the kitchen window sill for far too long. Small gestures seem immense here.
