New Additions to SK Clothes

I have three more pieces of clothing, one designed by me, and two designed by my daughter, to add to the SK Clothes collection.  The Party Dress (which I've named the dress I made) is made of three blouses: one was an aqua silk shirt, one was a burgundy polyester shirt, and the last one was a textured polyester sleeveless blouse.   It came out beautifully.  The white blouse, by my daughter, is made from a polyester fabric.  It has a drawstring at the hem.  The shorts are made from black cotton, and it's pleated from front to back.  It has a left side zippered one-button opening.  The pieces are roomy and comfortable.  The blouse and shorts could be dressed up with black tights and black low-heeled shoes or boots for a Christmas/holiday look.  Check my website portfolio at:

Celebrating My New Boots

I was fortunate to receive a pair of boots that I was eyeing for some time sooner than I expected to get it.  I wasn't expecting to get it for two months.  It's looks close enough to the grey ugg boots I posted in my blog titled "Comfortable Style" in  August.  The boots reach just below the knee, they're grey imitation suede (yay!) and have a flat heel.  I love the color grey for this season.

To celebrate my grey boots, I'm focusing on boots in this blog.

Forward Fashion

I've found some clothing designs that I love by designers who you must be familiar with.  They are all fashion forward pieces with a couple of common denominators.  Can you tell me what they are?

The designers' names are Epperson, Carolina Herrera, Erdem (Canadian), Marie Saint Pierre(Canadian), Helmut Lang and Haider Ackermann.  The designs are from their fall and winter 2009 collections. Epperson's design was made for one of the challenges for season 6 of Project Runway.

The Colors of Fall and Winter 2010 - 2011

According to, the colors for the fall and winter season for 2010 - 2011 are:  black, white, red, yellow, beige, blue, pink, grey, orange, brown and green.  I think that means every color existing is in fashion this fall and winter.    This should make life a bit more simple for those of us on a budget.  We've got some, if not all, of those colors in our wardrobe already., one of the fashion forcasting websites,  have names for their colors like tea rose, deep plum, gray mist, golden bronze, pecan and Prussian blu (I didn't spell blue wrong; that's how it's spelled on the website). 

Here are some more popular colors for fall and winter 2010 and 2011 in visual form:

Tea rose - dress by Dorothey Perkins

Mocha - Classiques boucle jacket

Plum - dress by Donna Ricco
Emerald - Moncler quilt coat 
 I remember wanting women to wear more color during the winter months.  I may have received my wish this winter season.  Till next bog!
