Happier Then Ever by Brienne Moody | This top down sweater was designed with my favorite (only) daughter in mind. She is brave and bold and a kind of everything-on-it, maximalist kind of human. Her current favorite artist is Billy Eillish and Eillish’s most recent album is called “Happier Than Ever.” This sweater is an homage to that song and to my kid.
