There’s an undeniably happy, trick-or-treaty feeling that happens in October. Sure, the daylight hours are shrinking, but they’re bringing us closer and closer to that pivotal moment where we can run full speed into the waiting arms of our dearly beloved fall wardrobe. Judging by friends’ posts scattered across the Internet like autumn leaves, Pivotal Moment 2013 has arrived. We love seeing these little postcards of the travels of our boots. And while they’re going out into the world having adventures, other pieces are coming home to roost, including vintage leather jackets from our last trip to Italy and a new crate of belts. Is there any better smell than a freshly opened crate of leather goods? No. Well, okay, maybe Liza’s famous pumpkin bread pudding (we’d share with you, but it disappeared faster than a vintage leather jacket). If you haven’t been by the Studio in a while, we’ve uploaded some helpful directions. You may  just want to camp out here for awhile, trying on boots and jackets, in case Liza brings more treats. We’ll put in a good word for you.

Ti voglio bene.
