adventures in styling


devil in a blue dress by hollandcox I’ve been playing with Polyvore lately, as a new & improved way of procrastinating. Putting together sets is exactly like window shopping, or helping a friend put together an outfit for an occasion. Only I can do it while sitting at my computer (and there’s no budget, of […]

book review: Design Your Own Tees


I spent part of my Saturday in Adams Morgan at the seventh annual Crafty Bastards art & craft fair. This year was the first time in years that I’ve been in town and not vending at another craft fair, so I was excited to hang out and absorb the craftiness. There were a number of […]

skip town in style

coming soon

It’s been a while since I’ve traveled anywhere, and I’m starting to feel anxious about it. Luckily, I have several trips planned for the spring/summer, mostly for out-of-town craft shows, but at least one just for fun. I’m going to Dallas for a friend’s wedding in a few weeks, and planning for that trip inspired […]

dressed up denim


Sometimes people ask me why I don’t make my handbags out of leather. That they are cute enough style-wise, but would be so much more sophisticated if they were in leather. I tend to just blink at these people and smile and tell them that I like pattern too much to give up fabric (which […]

By officially joining up, I pledge to not buy any new, manufactured clothing for six months, and instead refashion what I already own, what I find […]

versatile style


My last two “how to wear it” posts were all about the fabric. How you don’t have to let a simple pattern or wild colors hold you back when you put together an outfit. This time, I want to talk about the silhouette of the bags, the shape and size of them. I like small […]

how to wear it: mixing patterns


If you are at all familiar with Holland Cox products, you know that wild patterns and bright colors are what draws me to fabrics. The bolder the better! Sometimes, however, I do pick a more subdued print, but just because it is not multi colored or wildly abstract, does not mean it won’t still be […]

styling your holland cox handbags


Ever since I used polyvore.com to show how I wore my obi belt, I have been obsessed with that web site! At first I was wary that it was soley the domain of youngsters. You’ll notice browsing through the sets, that a high number of them are centered around teen fashionistas like Leighton Meester, Emma […]

how to wear your obi belt

custom work

The obi belts have been getting lots of love lately, especially at the Squidfire Philly show and the Art on Belmont show. I made a whole bunch of new ones and put them up in the Etsy shop, if you haven’t seen them yet. A question I have gotten from some customers at the shows […]
