It's all a rich tapestry

Just received a new present from myself in the mail! I found these shoes 50% off on If you love asos, make sure you 'like' them on Facebook to be among the first in the know when they have special Sunday sales! These metallic brocade print wedges feature Swarovski crystal detailing up the back. The heel height on these babies raises me up a whole 6"!

Some Sexy (and Free!) Christmas Cheer

A few weeks ago Victoria's Secret had a special invite-only holiday shopping party after the mall had closed. There were lots of goodies to be had with a DJ, refreshments, and prize draws every fifteen minutes. With special discounts and bonus items such as a T-Shirt from the Victoria's Secret 2011 fashion show, it was a merry night for all who attended!

Nacho Aguayo - Spring/Summer 2012

More Spring and Summer fashion fun! Nacho Aguayo. I think the turquoise and orangey-red colours are fantastic both on their own and together. Will def be on the lookout for those colours next spring. I love the simple clean lines in the pieces and am wanting wanting wanting the dress in the second shot!

David Koma Spring 2012

OK, it's going down to -7 tonight, so time for some more warm weather dreaming to escape reality! Here are a few shots of David Koma's Spring 2012 Ready-To-Wear Collection. I love the strong geometric shapes in all of the pieces. I also love how he has taken this year's trend of the cut-out dress to the next level with multiple cutouts creating such dynamic patterns. He has also done a fabulous job of carrying out these geometric shapes and lines into the model's hair.

Fashion Survives the Apocalypse

Today's Inspiration comes from an Art Director I happened to stumble upon. Formerly an Art Director at Surface Magazine, I find Christopher Mozsary's projects so visually stunning. The shoots are so conceptually strong. His vision behind a piece called 'Lost Highway" was “Imagine the apocalypse came and wiped out everything but chic people and hot design.”... check out the last two photos here... Just how I imagined that might look...

You will shelter me

Haven't been posting as much as I would like lately. One of the things of owning your own business and being a  freelance designer/art director you don't always have a set schedule and new work and projects can come up at any time.

If there was an award for comfiest outfit, I think this one might win. I got these great moccasins at a small store on the outskirts of where I grew up.
