there's no such thing as a "sure thing" in life or in fashion; you can't trust a brand you love to make gorgeous clothes 100% of the time. a couple weeks ago i posted about the gorgeous fall 2010 collection by leifsdottir, but as i was browsing anthropologie yesterday, i came across the $328 leifsdottir sweater shown below. i can't imagine anyone wearing this, unless they're a children's entertainer with money to burn or the town eccentric. what's that expression about beating a dead horse? i think i'd prefer to beat this sweater...
doesn't it remind you of a hobby horse? in fact, i have a crafty & budget-conscious DIY idea:

i'm not much of a horse person - the last time i rode a horse was possibly 20 years ago - but i can't deny their beauty. i recently read that cindy crawford and aurélie claudel both started modeling to make enough money to buy a horse. little did they know... horses come with the job description - especially if you book a job with vogue or harper's bazaar:
