Simplicity and Style

Style can be clothing with unique details in a new silhouette, and style can be simple silhouettes in good quality fabrics, unusual prints, constructed well, paired with other well constructed garments.  Here are good looking and familiar silhouettes for men.

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?

Fabulous Style - Fall and Winter 2014

I've been glancing at a few of the top designers' fall/winter 2014-15 collections.  Wow! So much color, so many prints, so many silhouettes, this season is fantastic in terms of variety!  I'm inspired.  I'm actually excited for this fall and winter in terms of clothes, not weather.  Hope to see a lot of women, men and youth expressing who they are in fabric and design.

Patched Denim Revived

I don't think teens and 20something year olds know about the patched denim jean fad in the 70s.  It was a popular style for many and probably served to lengthen the life of favorite jeans back then.  I remember oval shaped patches that were used on my jeans as a child.

Patched denim is back for a time.  Now the patches are more creative and give an artistic look to not just jeans, but dresses, skirts, jackets, you name it.  It's a fun way to wear and lengthen the life of your favorite denim clothes.

Men's Wedding Wear

I don't know why I didn't think of this idea in the past.  Aren't men interested in what to wear to their wedding as well?  Wedding wear for men, just as women, varies from the 3 - piece suit to just shirt and slacks for the very casual celebration.  Anything goes.  Just dress for your personality and venue.
