A Touch of Green

Thursday, September 22, 2011

First, a very big thank you to the lovely Naina from Style'n for the warm mention about my shop!  If you aren't familiar with Naina's blog, head on over there right now, it's fabulous.  Great accessories, and beautiful fashion, a truly wonderful blog to read!

Green isn't normally a colour that I gravitate towards or use in my shop all that often, but I've been really digging it lately.  So when I spotted a gorgeous shade of green twill cotton in our local fabric store there was no doubt that I had to buy some and find a way to work it into the the shop!

I decided to pair it with pink, of course, pink being my "go-to" colour.  I have to say, that I'm beyond thrilled with the result of this colour combo, just wish I had purchased more of the green....

What do you think?

If you want to see more clutches that I've been working on or about to list, feel free to head on over to my flickr account!

I'm about to order a bunch of zippers, you can expect more bright and bold colours and a few new ones too.  As well as some more dark clutches like the green one above....all just in time for fall!

The other day it was all about the nautical look, yesterday it was all about print with a touch of simplicity (necklace from The Bay).

I know that these past couple of photos are nowhere near the amazing style posts that other bloggers have, perhaps I should drag my tripod out of the closet to take some better photos.  In the meantime I'm enjoying spending more time on my fashion choices as well as accessorizing and of course, sharing this all with you!

Baby steps....

Last Friday I went out with little J to do some shopping.  I picked up a few shirts for myself, including this striped t-shirt from Gap.

I paired it with a beautiful necklace made by Anna from In Honor Of Design and some slightly flared jeans, also from Gap.  A tad bit nautical and totally comfortable!


Weekend Update

Sunday, September 18, 2011

Hello, friends!  I apologize for the lack of posting the past couple of days.  I felt completely out or sorts last week, our first full week of school and with both kiddos going everyday.  It will be great once we get used to our new schedule.  Both kids are absolutely loving their teachers and classmates, so it should be a fun year!

With that, we had a great weekend here.  I finally got back to sewing, it's been too long!  I've added some new ruffle and sequins clutches to the shop, including one with a new colour combo for fall!

We also put up the vinyl herc I purchased a few months ago in our eldest sons room.  I have to admit that it was a little tricky, and there are a few wrinkles, but it still looks great and I'll definitely be purchasing more!

I'll leave you with a few pics....new clutches and of course, the herc!

This song makes me smile and the kids and I love dancing to it....so I wanted to share it with you!

Happy weekend, friends!


Open For Business!

Tuesday, September 6, 2011

I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful long weekend!

And finally, I'm happy to announce that the shop is now open!  Thank you SO much for your patience and for sticking with me during the summer break.  It was nice to enjoy the summer with the family but I'm happy to be back!

Please note, although the shop is open, I will not be shipping any orders out until Sept 9th.  So any orders placed between now and Thursday, Sept 8th will be shipped the morning of Sept 9th.  Also, you can save 20% on your entire purchase with Coupon Code: CELEBRATE


With that, I've added a few new clutches to the shop.  Here's a peek:

I think that this is perhaps my favourite colour combo to date, was tempted to keep it for myself!

There will be a slight delay in new listings.  I have to make a trip to the fabric store to stock up on a few supplies.

Also, you can expect to see a few new Holiday Ruffled Fabric Notecards in the shop soon too!
