What is that, VELVET!?

At the fabric store the other day, looking for fabric to make a skirt (or dress), my sister looked at me like I was crazy and said, “What is that, Velvet!?”  She expressed her opinion of me having my mind on fall when she was clearing enjoying her summer and was not ready for it to end. 
I know that we are still in the sizzling season of summer, and don’t get me wrong I love the summer, especially #SummerTimeChi, but I guess I’m ready for fall now. This is what designers do, we’re always a season ahead (although Chicago really don’t have a fall season due to our wacky weather, we literally only have summer & winter) 
There is always so much more to wear in the fall, for instance; velvet. I know we’ve seen velvet earlier this year, but I just can’t wait to wear it this fall. Whenever I see velvet it makes me think of fall. I love it when it’s done right. And looking at these photos of Zoe, Vanessa, and Rihanna in their velvet get-ups makes me anxious for fall. So yes lil sis, what your seeing here is velvet and it’s fabulous.

Me & My Teddy, Geting All Ready

I’m looking into giving one of these lovely teddies a nice home. I have fallen for the iconic bears of the 90 year old Spanish jewelry line “Tous”. Though they have many other great pieces the teddies are my fav, along with the elephants. These Tous teddies can be paired with just about any look in my opinion; preppy, casual, or edgy. Any one of these fellas will be a good finishing touch to a fabulous out fit. Jennifer Lopez recently became the new face for the line earlier this year. Here’s some of the Tous Teddies & J-Lo of course.
