One warehouse, over 300 exhibitors, inspiration, and brilliant insights on whats to come in the world of fashion. Thanks to the magical Kate Jacobsen from Kenwerks Fashion Creative Marketing Firm, I was able to attend the Premiere Vision global textile event for North American fashion professionals. At this event I was able to experience the aura of the quickly approaching Spring Summer 2017 fashion season through fabrics, accessories, textile designs, color trends, and the newest addition of leathers.
I had the opportunity to work with Tiny Devotions once again, they are a company I continue to grow to admire with incredible products. The quality and intention behind each piece is unique and meaningful. I received a piece from the soon to come, “Wanderlust Collection” which features 16 pieces based on 16 of the most magical places around the world. The bracelet I received was intended to represent Vancouver, a coastal dreamland in British Columbia. This bracelet captures the colors of Vancouver; the beautiful blue oceans paired with the shining white cityscape.
Today I had a spontaneous thrifting adventure with my mom. We talked about huge fashions and trends from years before- things her and her friends would look for, make, and obsess over. After shopping around with her we found some great pieces- but we came home feeling extra inspired. We went into my attic to find some of her old favorites. Then she showed me these bad boys.
Until next time.
The weather is so fantastic right now- absolutely perfect for getting cozy and having coffee outside. Today I was thinking about colors, pallets that truly inspire me, and all I could think of is Rust. If someone were to ask me my favorite color I wouldn’t be able to limit it to one- the entire rust pallet has always had me swooning. The way that burnt oranges and reds combine with greys, browns, and a subdued blue is so aesthetically pleasing to me. Many of my outfits and even my interior designs are inspired by these colors. Today I utilized this scheme in my outfit, and was inspired by small details of my room.
I’ll be honest, this summer was one of the best times of my life. I haven’t felt so free, so happy, and so grateful to be alive in years. I am so glad I started to work less; I’d rather have a mind full of memories over a pocket full of cash any day. It was hard to make that decision- but I can’t even explain how much I really needed that time to myself. I spent my summer running around- constantly moving from one place to another, and I loved it! I’m the kind of person that LOVES to stay busy. Unfortunately with that being said I did seem to neglect my blog a bit- many apologies to you lovelies who stop by time to time! But tis the season- my very favorite fashion season of all- so I am back with an intention to stay on top of it! I feel very refreshed this fall, and look forward to being very organized and informative!
Sitting here on this rainy day made me want to share some of my favorite pieces with you all. These two jackets mean a whole lot to me, and were both purchased at Goodwill!
