#Kate Spade meets #UGG

As part of my personal style, I luv, luv, luv a great denim dress! Thanks to the Kate Spade Broome Collection… my closet just got a little happier! Everything from the little decorative red roses that adorn the hem and sleeves to the  perfect everyday length of this denim frock make it a keeper. Now when I pair it with the greatest UGG boots ever to walk the plank, it is the most stylish, comfortable yet practical outfit that has quickly become my “go to” outfit this winter. Now these are not your typical UGG Boots! In fact, when I first saw them I had no idea that UGG would be anywhere near the label of these boots.  You see I have a love / hate relationship with the UGG family…. I, like many other style crazed people went out and bought every possible pair of UGG boots on the market!  I had the short ones, the tall ones the knit ones, the slippers ( 2 different pair ) and I joined the sock less crusade of UGG wearing ! A few months later and a whole lot of scars I had to admit defeat….. those UGG boots were not for me! But  UGG boots have been redeemed thanks to these high heeled, fur lined, knee high UGG boots.  I can burn my stockings ( and some days in Canada that is a pipe dream, as it gets so darn cold )  pop on these wonderfully comfortable sophicated UGG boots with the cutest little denim dress and my day gets better.

My latest craze…. Baseball caps with a little sophication… These can be made up in just about any fabric and oh did I have fun with the linings! Once I started to make these   happy head coverings I could not stop!! I rummaged through the fabric stash and found plenty of inspirational stuff to work with! This grey linen for instance was actually a remnant from beautiful linen drapery. Check out the grey linen drapery at http://www.spacesdesigngroup18.wix.com/spaces-design-group Continue reading The Sophicated Baseball Hat

Old Faithful Black ‘ White

When I search for fabrics it is always a treat to find a piece like this beautifully embroidered black and white silk!

This is a crushable, packable hat,  and let me tell you, its been on the back window of my car for about 2 years now! It is absolutely my “go to” hat!  If I am stuck for something to wear this is what I wear….. it is light weight and looks great with any little black dress! Instant elegance with its medium brim size and oversized black handmade silk rose. It is available for re-make one more time and then its on to a new color….
