Father's Day

A quick post for today. Here's the card I made for my dad this year.

I went with blue and tweed - what's more fatherly than that? Besides Mr. Fantastic from the Fantastic Four, of course. An odd reference, I know, but it reminded me of my dad since he gave some of his old Fantastic Four ViewMaster reels to my brother and I when we were little. The stars (an old event wristband) work with the superhero theme.

People Watching: On the Pike

I was walking home from the bank when I passed a group of kids who were obviously in town for some swanky school function - why else would 15 year old guys be wearing polo shirts and blazers on a 90 degree day? Amongst the guys in blazers was a girl wearing this dress:

I was... confused? Speechless? Amused? Slightly terrified?

The tack-on collar is a trend that isn't going away (apparently it'll be around this fall in full force). And I respect people who can pull off the buttoned-to-the-top look, although it's not my favorite. But this kind of thing... on a dress... with a button placket? Oh, Forever 21... Just because you can doesn't mean you should... But then there's something about this dress that does strike me as adventurous and unique...

Your thoughts?
