Somewhere along the line, my brain came to a conclusion. This conclusion was neither original or difficult but certainly was compelling…

The Conclusion: Must Have More Yarn!

The next thing I know, one itchy trigger finger later, I was the lucky owner of the ginourmous bag of Sonata (elann) cotton you see above. It has Chesnut Brown, Sage Silver, Navy, etc. etc. etc. Oh and a littel Pesto to top it off. These are all destined for transitional tops…

And even though the Mighty DSL Pipeline is making my head swim (omg, I can now catch up on all of the Podcasts!!!) it has also opened up new horizons of content.

For instance: Pantone’s Fall 2006 Color Report – downloads in about 3 sec. (right click on the dress on the right side bar). YaHAAAA!

OR: cruise’s Couture Reports like they were pages flipping on my lap!

So far, my favorite is the Collection offered by Proenza Schouler which you can see here.

Most compelling for me? The Color.



I believe the Report calls it *Bijou Blue* [Pantone 18-3921] and the look it creates paired with Black anything is fabulous. They show it with Black leather; Black chiffon; Black taffeta. Hmmm. But of course, I’ve always been in love with Black.
