"...on the impulse of winter midnight street / light smalltown rain"

So this is one DIY version of an Anthropologie sweater.I love the store-- their attention to details and color is right on for me but I cant afford/justify spending 80$ on a cardigan.

I always look through the site and find myself thinking, "I could totally do that!" but I just never get around to buying a base cardigan, shirt, or dress. Think of all the cheap sweaters at Forever 21 or H&M that you can decorate!

Here is a link to my tutorial on how to make this sweater.

So I really, really love taking pictures on the roof of my building. I can see the entire NYC skyline... and the Hudson... and NJ. New Jersey is actually behind me in all these pictures.

This is Grant's tomb-- I see this out of my HUGE bedroom window. I keep thinking about that joke about who's buried in Grant's tomb...

Another view-- in the upper left corner past that building is the middle of Harlem. I do my grocery shopping on the edge of Harlem.

Riverside Church + Grant's Tomb. These make up my entire bedroom window view. I could not have gotten luckier in the bedroom window view category-- I must have one of the best views in the entire city. No joke.

So I run by Riverside Church everyday... and I just realized it is the tallest church in the US, funded in part by Rockefeller... and Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, and Fidel Castro have spoken there. WOW.

This is awesome! I love your flowers on the cardigan so much better than the other expensive features there. You seriously ROCK!!

Great Cardigan! I like it better than the three you showed from Anthro.

But aside from that...your view is totally amazing! I'm jealous!
Hope you had a great weekend!

I found your blog from Cut Out + Keep. I love your sweater & your flower dress & skirt. Your stuff is awesome. You're so lucky that you live in NY & have the view.
