Sequin Stripes

Sequins are the neon lights of fashion. They’re bright, shiny, and can look pretty, but only in moderation. That’s why this sweater is brilliant – stripes are the perfect way to balance out the sparkle. Since my sweater already mixes sequins and knits, I decided add in some more texture: my favourite shearling jacket and a silk mini skirt to add some lightness to the mix. …

The Black & Gold Standard

Gold is everywhere in December: on holiday lights and decorations, gift wrap, chocolate boxes, and of course clothing. Why not wear gold to celebrate the year’s end? I usually wear it in the form of jewelry, but I’m a sucker for metallics and this blouse/skirt set was too gorgeous to ignore. I fell in love with the matte hue and its subtle shine, the incorporation of black, the diamond-like …
