Lovely Spring Collection

I found these beautiful clothes, I believe, on New York Magazine website.  They are fantastic!  Very new looks in terms of silhouettes, details and use of stripe and print fabrics.

These dresses, pants and tops are so fashion forward!

Till next blog next year!  Happy New Year!

What's the Material?

The first time I believe I saw a garment made from atypical material was on Project Runway.  It fascinated me that unusual items could be manipulated into clothes with an extraordinary flare.  I have yet to try making something using the unusual, but I think about it.

Found some fascinating designs made with objects with other original uses.  Lovely and time consuming work!

The Uncommon Blazer

It doesn't take a lot of change to stand out.  One striking clothing piece can do it.  I  came across some men's blazers with distinct details, fabrics and color combinations that aren't common, but are very attractive.  And will look good on the man with an eye for charming apparel.

Till next time and next blog!

Sensational Conventional Couture

Couture design is so intricate in detail using luxurious fabrics and time consuming sewing methods.  And couture design is so enjoyable to view, causing many of us to daydream about wearing such expensive clothes to an extravagant event. It's fun to daydream sometimes...

This Prevailing Hue - Black

Are you in the mood to wear black?  Maybe you want to express the times by wearing neutral colors. Whether the times are good or not so great,  black seems to be one of the favorite colors to wear.  Details on a black garment will get  more attention as the hue is not intense.

Until next blog.

From Areas in Emergency: Focus on Designers

What a summer!  Fires, hurricanes and earthquakes!  Summer is technically over September 22, 2017, and I hope nothing else catastrophic will be happening.  

For those recovering from the disasters that have happened, and are still happening, in British Columbia, Canada (wildfires), Texas (hurricane Harvey) and Florida  and some Caribbean islands (hurricane Irma), designers from each area are featured this week.

League of Rebels, Texas, US

Allison Smith design, British Columbia, Canada

Calvin Southwell design, Antigua, Carribean

Praying for the quick restoration of each province, state, and island.  Till next blog.

Wearable Crochet: Erika and Monika Simmons Designs

Erika and Monika Simmons are twins who design colorful and unique crochet clothing for women.  Both first learned to crochet in grade 4.  After graduating from child development and sociology programs in college, they, because of their love for creativity, were working as hair braiders, print models, taught fitness classes and also were employed as dancers for music videos. Apparently all these jobs didn't increase the amount of money earned, so Erika and Monika revived their crocheting skills during a tight Christmas season to create inexpensive gifts for family.  These garments are the lovely results coming out of a need.  And there's plenty more beautiful crocheted creations to see, and purchase, from the Simmons twins.

Exclusivey Etsy is a great website for shoppers and designers alike.  Designers get to sell their products, usually one-of-a-kind designs, and shoppers looking for the unique items not seen at the neighborhood department stores have a great time surfing this site.

I'm always pleasantly surprised looking at

What to Wear to Weddings

Question?  Are most weddings held on the weekends, making Saturday probably the most popular day to get married?  I believe so.  I also think that most weddings are held during the spring and summer seasons for obvious reasons.

Many of you may be attending a wedding during the warm seasons and wondering what to wear.  Here are a few ideas;  the colors, prints, fabrics and details are fantastic!

No matter what you wear, it's wonderful to witness a couple committing to one another.  Enjoy the weddings!  Till next blog!

Love Indigenous Prints

Basically, different ethnicities have identifying fabrics unique to each one.  Many are very colorful with intricate designs.   On my list of favorite ethnic fabrics are the prints designed by the indigenous peoples of America, especially when used to design current fashionable clothing.  Love the colors!

Wedding dress,

Till the next blog!
