revelatory

New York was great (flights, traffic & weather were smoooooooth) ... Orla was heavenly!
Prior to the trip, we of course had linesheets for Fall '08 to peruse - but wow, to see the pieces in person is revelatory. Some that look ok on the sheets were gorgeous in person - whites were brighter and the contrast made the look. Other pieces that seemed sort of interesting on the linesheets were 'mmmmm, not-so-much' in person.

Stem multi print in a slightly different colorway is going to be great for fall!

While in NY we swung through Toy Fair at Javitz and a black/white circle flower print bag caught my eye - it was a freebie bag from a vendor - an amazingly blatant rip-off - Youch - you would have to set it next to the true ringprint to note the differences. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!
