Lately I have an obsession with lilac.

In addition to loving all of these shoes, I've recently been on a lilac yarn binge.

12 skeins of Debbie Bliss Como
2 skeins of A Verb for Keeping Warn Reliquary II
1 skein of Skacel Merino Lace
Lots of knitting ahead of me!

Sarah Richards

All I can say is wow.

I haven't seen this much talent since LeeAnne Marshall and she fell off the face of the earth.
These collections are amazing. The balance between the knit, print and the fringe is so well done.

Such young talent, Sarah Richards graduated from RISD this past spring!
Keep it up girl! I wish I had your talent!

The top three images are from her newest collection called Extra Verte.

Missoni x Target

Wow. Here are the few things that really caught my eye.

I really love the throw, I am definitely going to be up at midnight to try and get my hands on these goodies. I'm sure they will be selling out FAST!
There are over 400 items from 2.99-499.99!

Target you are amazing.

ruth marshall

These knitted pelts are the work of Ruth Marshall. Each one is an exact replica of a real animal. In 2009 she was granted access to study pelts at the American Museum of Natural History. How awesome and also cruelty free are these? Fascinating.

As a conservationist, Marshall's work also speak to the destruction of habitat and dwindling populations of many of the worlds most fascinating creatures.

Insight Fall 2011

Insight Fall 2011

Another stunning collection. The dark hues are perfect for fall, I especially love all of the blood red. I can't wait to get my hands on the True Romance graphic pants (top pic) and Rouched and Ready dress (bottom pic).

Goodbye, San Fran!

Last day in the bay.

I bundled up in the last few warm clothes I had left.

We spent the afternoon at SFMOMA strolling the galleries. The amazing Stein Collection was massively crowded.

After we had lunch at Papalote and romped around the Mission-- my new stomping grounds, since I've been down here pretty much every day this trip.

But, alas I'm ready to head home. Broke, a few pounds heavier and loaded with presents: suburbia, pillow topper, pool, boy here I come!
