The last week of October I embarked to South Carolina to spend eight wonderful days in the presence of my dearest friends. All of us flew in for a week long celebration of love, family and friendship. The occasion? A wedding of course! Traveling from Seattle, Chicago, Portland, Atlanta, Indianapolis, Madison, New York and even Poland, the wedding guests came in from around the globe to witness the union of a beloved couple: Natalie & Reid.
The bridal party arrived in Beaufort several days early to prepare for a grand task: Plan the ultimate eco-friendly, vegan and local wedding soiree. So in true DIY spirit, we spent hours crafting, consorting and conniving all in the name of throwing a handmade shindig for our two dearest friends.
On this chilly Friday I wanted to share with you this adorable paper cutout from Design Sponge that asks us to seize each day and opportunity.
Whether it means going the extra mile for someone in need, or taking a chance to follow your dreams, make today the day where you step out of your comfort zone to make a difference.
I know I’ve been talking talking and talking about cozy fall sweaters and designs. Well, I’m comforted knowing I’m not the only one obsessed with this fall fashion staple!
Becky Striepe included my Sugar Free upcycled cardigan on the site Feelgood Style in a spread on eco-friendly snuggle-worthy tops for the season. View the article on Fall Style here and check out the rest of the blog – you’re in for a treat!
We’re getting more sweatshirt love!
My classic Pierogi Picnic design, “Sugar Free” was featured on the ultra sweet blog Sweet Sincerity in a spread on fashion pieces for fall. I love the collection as it brings together some adorable and whimsical pieces that really invoke the season. Check out the spread here and enjoy!
You know it’s truly autumn when all your cool weather items are the hit at every event and are being featured on blogs and treasuries. The latest (and I think greatest) of my designs is currently highlighted on the fantastic site “Handmade Men” which sets to bring the handmade lifestyle to online shoppers.
In a feature entitled “Hot Picks! Handmade Hoodies” they included my “Sir Cycle” upcycled cowl hoodie. This is a piece that I handcrafted for a customer’s boyfriend last winter, and it’s since become one of my all-time favorite designs. So I was thrilled that the creation made it into this style savvy site. Be sure to take some time to explore the entire site for more chic and casual handmade creations.
Someone at a recent event grabbed hold of my new Point of Light design and asked, “Is it a dress or a tunic?”And it wasn’t the first time I’d had the question.
“Both” I exclaimed!
Known as either super-short dresses or extra-long tops, dress tunics are great for their versatility. The edgy length means they can be worn layered with a slip and leggings for a flirty look or jeans for something more casual.
So next time you’re shopping for something that can change along with the season’s, consider this unique category of clothing. You’ll find yourself smitten in no time!
I am absolutely loving on this new design! It combines many of my favorite elements in one simple and chic skirt. The soft upcycled cotton makes a perfect base for a flirty shape and hand-stenciled prints.
And for the gal who is obsessed with the peplum trend – but can’t find the confidence to sport the skin-tight pencil skirts they come on – this is the perfect solution! The a-line cut is flattering for many shapes, be it curvy or straight, and gives the wearer space to move.
Currently available made-to-order – this skirt will be debuting in a variety of shades as ready-to-wear in late September. So keep your eyes peeled to my Etsy shop.
