The Gradual Color Change

Isn't ombre a lovely color confection? One color blending into another to create a wonderful concoction for the eyes. 
It's a wonderful way to bring more interest and appeal to fabrics and the garments made from them.

The Future and Today Combined in Design

Sarah Pacini is a designer I just read about this year. She's a designer who started her business in Belgium and now her collections are made in Italy.  This lady knows how to make contemporary clothes with a futuristic edge that makes her garments relevant today. We can look both current and modern.

Wood Clutches? Innovative!

I have a thing for clutches now.  Why?  They're not large in size, therefore I can't pack unecessary items.  They're sleek and feminine.  I've been making clutches made of recycled fabrics with wrist bands, and creating different designs and textures for interest.  They're the next best thing to crossbody bags.

I happened to click on a link to Etsy.com from my e-mail, and saw something incredible and original.  Wood clutches!  What an innovative idea.  A strong material used to make a ladies' accessory.  And they look attractive.

The Right Coat for You

I'm one to encourage women to cover themselves with color for the cold weather. I love seeing the lively hues against the white snow and grey days.    
Against my better judgement, I've been seriously thinking of purchasing a black quilted hip length winter coat for the cold season.  If I'm correct, I've never owned a black coat before.  I'll fight the urge though....There's so many beautiful styles of coats with many color choices made with wool, acrylic knit, those made of man-made fibres, leather....  Which coat is right for you this winter?
