I recently got introduced to Missoni by a dear friend who was reminded of them by my humble little shirt. How flattering! I love Missoni's two-tone elbow length gloves, sculptural scarves and color combos, not to mention the pleasantly surprising wearability of their Fall 2008 line. Yes, Fall. Already. To say that time is flying would be a gross understatement.
Also, as you know, I am looking for a job and planning to go to art school and am not immune from the anxiety and stress that tends to accompany these "outside the comfort zone" activities. So how nice did it feel to read these words on Alabama Chanin's blog?
“We should all do what, in the long run, gives us joy, even if it is only picking grapes or sorting the laundry.”
E. B. White (1899-1985)
A comforting thought.
