hello, summer!

it's that time of year again! stern grove festival posters about to pop up all over our streets and busses.

the stern grove festival continues its tradition of getting super-talented artists to make their posters, etc.: this year's illustration was by yulia brodskaya, who takes quilling to a contemporary level. first noticed her when she did some book illustrations for neiman marcus.

brunello cucinelli

cardigan shopping

went shopping yesterday. and was on the lookout for a fun cardigan, as usual. found a couple but the sleeves are super long. maybe that's the look?

burberry brit ... see, even on the model the elbow patch falls below the elbow. oddly, the version i tried on had regular buttons, not hidden snaps.

tsesay ... imagine it without the ruffly pink dress, as seen here ... and again, the sleeves are bunched up around the elbows. much cuter than either picture shows. the gold stripes are actually a looser mesh knit.
