in addition to making me feel like i need to put on foundation immediately, this image from classic elite's new "picnic" booklet, makes me want to pick up my languishing needles and get smocking. not since bonnie have i felt the urge to smock so strongly. but forget about all that for a moment and look at how brilliantly this look works, basically by not "working" at all. it is completely devoid of accessories. the flawlessly fresh, minimally made up face with just a hint of color on the lips and the plaited updo are all that's needed to complement the detail in the neutral-hued sweater. this is truly a study in restraint that proves that the new less isn't just more. it's fabulous.
