style in the wild: changing the seasons

“in transition.”
my best friend used that term to describe, in high school, the process her clothes made across her room:  from wearing them, to putting them in a pile on the floor, to getting them into the laundry basket, to doing the laundry, to putting them in yet another pile and then wearing them again.
