"It's time to retire your micro-minis and sky-high heels. No, really. Designers have gone long for both day and night, turning out demure yet dramatic skirts that skim the upper shins (Marc Jacobs at both his own label and Louis Vuitton), graze the ankles (Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren), or fall gracefully somewhere in between. The most comforting part of this story: The new lengths look smashing with easy-on-the-feet kitten heels and flat-soled boots."

Strength in what remains

http://www.designspongeonline.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/rosie_the_riveter1.jpg


To me alone there came a thought of grief: 
A timely utterance gave that thought relief, 
        And I again am strong: 
The cataracts blow their trumpets from the steep;  25
No more shall grief of mine the season wrong;
image: design sponge
