Scholars and artists...differ most importantly in the way their knowledge is come by.  Scholars get theirs with conscientious thoroughness along projected lines of logic; poets...stick to nothing deliberately, but let what will stick to them like burrs where they walk in the fields.

Wow!!! This is PRETTY!! The pattern design is perfect for you body and the fabric is adorable. You look absolutely gorgeous in it. If you add ruby cardigan and red pumps as you said, you will elevate it even more!
