print & pattern: circles 08.31.2011


It’s different than a polka-dot, it’s full on large-scale circles-and we’re seeing them pop up all over the place for Fall fashion. Love it when it’s done in a classic black and a pale neutral!

    >Every time I write out an ampersand, I go slow and make sure it's absolutely perfect and beautiful. It's my favorite figure to write (I'm a dork, I know).

So in love with the palette in this illustration by Penelope Dullaghan. Her work is stunning and definitely worth a trip to her website. You will most likely recognize some of her drawings.
