It was just yesterday that I was craving some Botas for the peekaboo winter we’re having here on the East Coast. And now you’re taunting me with Ballet Flats? C’mon. Didn’t you hear Puxatawney Phil saw his shadow? Spring isn’t supposed to show up for a while yet… but with January ending on 60 degrees, I should probably invest in a pair of each. Just in case.
I’ve been a fan of Darling Dexter for years now, traveling along with Whitney as she left her graphic design job in New York for photography classes at SCAD, then back up to NY for fashion when her photography passion uncovered a love for fashion design. Along the way she and her “hub” (so funny when she talks about Dustin) started up an amazing photography company. My “hub” and I are hoping we can one day commission the two for some family portraits. And maybe, through osmosis, catch some of their entrepreneurial amazingness.
Now she’s back down South and just covered a new line of wedding gear that is just what the industry needed – heartfelt, homemade, and fresh. While I’ve already had (ok, survived) my own wedding day (3 years yesterday!), I can’t wait to tell my engaged friends about her new line. Maybe I’ll get myself a purdy little dress for their big day. Or any day, really. These dresses can really work anywhere! So congrats, Whitney! You work hard and I’m proud of you.
I just love Donna Wilson. Her work is so playful, and the colors and patterns in her new collection are lovely. Click here to download her now catalogue, with everything from outerwear to stuffed animals to ceramics. I so want those gloves!
Cavalier is bringing sexy back with simple and handsome branding and products:
“If Steve McQueen carried a beat-up leather duffle bag on the back of his motorcycle; what would be in it and how would the products look?”
Just came across this site – how remarkable is this lady? Seriously! Lizzie is quite talented refashionista and has inspired me to finish up a pile of vintage and secondhand clothes I’ve picked up this summer. Check out her Granny Chic contest from last week – some truly amazing refashioning happening there.
Thanks, EmersonMade, for making me think I could pull off a caftan.
Technically, my Chinese zodiac is the rat, but I’d lie for that rooster. Or poodle…
[PS: I found this bling via We Less Than Three, a Brooklyn-based design studio co-owned by one of my old college classmates, Ashley Quinn, a fine fashionista with an eye for good design.]
My other half decided that he simply needed to get himself some proper footwear for this winter weather we’re having here in New Jersey. He grew up in New England so he knows – LL Bean is the place to go for cold weather gear. Fortunately, LL Bean Signature has given a facelift to their line that is a little more hipster and little less, um, dad (sorry Pop!). These Waxed Canvas Maine Hunting Boots shoes are perfect and expected to arrive at our doorstep today. Tom will officially be a Duck Boot dad.
