Quote is by Poe. Because I am reading a vintage copy of his best work.
He is a big influence on my work.
I found the sweater on the sale rack at H&M. I bought a Large(I am a small) because I am tall and lanky and I enjoy the look of big on top with a tight jean. I balanced that volume with the knitwear on the boot by rolling my boot socks over the short boots.
