playing with textures

      Three of my favourite textures to work with this fall are suede, denim and leather. The combination of soft suede, tough leather and rugged denim gives a nice variety to this look and is a tie in for a few major things we’ve been seeing for fall. Suede has been everywhere the past […]

back to so cool

         I has been years since I was actually heading back to school after labour day long weekend, but regardless this time of year still brings change for all – at least in terms of the season. It all of a sudden got cool (and really rainy) in BC for the first time […]

Though it’s a delicate material (unless you cheat with faux suede like I did) it is less tangly than fringe, less Coachella than crochet and doesn’t make me feel like I’m in […]

that 70’s show

Everything old is new again this season, and there is a huge focus on looks straight from the 70’s! I went to Coachella last year and after seeing a million girls in floral crowns, heeled booties and rompers, I thought I was over “festival” style and destined to never wear crochet again. But then H […]
