I love these illustrations from Dutch artist Bodil Jane. Her female subjects bring such attitude and sass and their living spaces possess so much beautiful detail and character, I can’t help but want to be a part of her make believe world.
The best thing about fall and winter dressing is the outerwear. 100%. So when someone like Alexandra Shipper launches a label solely dedicated to coats and blazers, we get excited. After traveling to Europe to witness experience elaborate hand executed techniques when it came to dressmaking, and designing for Issaac Mizrahi in New York, Alexandra wanted to craft a collection of coats for women who see outerwear as a form of expression. The construction is borrowed from menswear tailoring but the silhouettes are refined and feminine. These timeless pieces are sure to be classic wardrobe staples.
Ugh, is it too soon to change the color of my kitchen cabinets from grey to blue? I’m crushing hard on these kitchens painted in a multitude of dark blue hues.

From platform sandals to smoking slippers to combat boots, designers are offering a plethora of velvet shoe options this fall. This luxe fabric makes its resurgence year after year, which makes the investment totally worth it – velvet shoes never go out of style!
I’m loving this little capsule collection of environmentally friendly clothing from Zara, as part of their Join Life Project. Blouses, trench coats, denim and jumpsuits are made using organic cotton, recycled wool and Tencel, a wood fiber that is extracted from sustainably managed forests and uses sustainable technology to produce, which eliminates the negative environmental impacts of traditional fiber processing. How is the white ruffled blouse and high waisted trouser ensemble? Sold.
