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 […]

sweater weather

      Right now is the weird twilight zone between seasons where you see pedestrians in everything from shorts and flip flops to winter coats. It’s freaking freezing in the morning and as soon as the sun goes down, but mid day and in the right light it’s almost like summer is still around. I’ve […]

An a-line […]

suede this season

  I’ve talked about the 70’s trend before here but suede is probably the most understated way to work the look into your wardrobe. 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 […]
