Style Defined: CLASSIC

This look was styled by Cassie.

Sometimes, simplicity is key. With this look, we start with a simple base: black cashmere turtleneck from Kinross, simple leggings from Equestrian Designs, suede kitten heel from Bettye Muller.

But there’s a twist! The turtleneck is topped with a beautiful charcoal and pink scarf, the leggings have the faintest foil design printed on them, the suede heel is adorned with a bow and we’ve finished the look with hand beaded Miguel Ases earrings.

It’s all very classically girly – note the flowery jewelry and the aforementioned bow – but we love to add the small twists to play with preconceived notions. That’s what makes classic so . . . classic! You can always riff on the basic. Be bold and original!

Classic Defined: A Classic style is the basis of chic fashion. It has characteristics that appeal to a majority of “neat & tidy” women – especially those who appreciate tailored clothes and accessories. Minimalism, Preppy and Elegant style are variations of this fashion persona. Timeless design, usually black, grey, sometimes white or nude, with the occasional pop of color. Always flattering, never out of style, and always tasteful.

Helping The Birds Weather Winter

The sudden arrival of winter weather in our area  - and on National Bird Day, at that - has inspired us to share a brief summary of ways to help our garden friends survive the toughest and coldest days of the season. Providing shelter from the storm can be as easy as making small piles of brush here and there throughout the garden. Adding some leafy branches to the top of the piles will give additional cover to birds trying to stay warm. Leaving dead trees up - where possible - allows... Full Post >

Style Defined: CHIC

This look was styled by Sharon. There is no better time to wear glittery pants than the holiday season. We love this cigarette-style pair from Day Birger et Mikkelsen, especially paired with a reversible architectural top from TY-LR. A pair of extra sparkly earrings, hand beaded by Miguel Ases and a paprika-colored leather Opera clutch from Joanna Maxham complete the look and it’s all perfectly punctuated by this stylish heel from Bettye Muller. We picture this look at a celebratory... Full Post >
