Definetely a white Christmas

So Christmas has finally arrived. Woke up this morning to come open the store before I start going from place to place for the next couple of days to eat a whole lot. I look outside just to see that we have just received another 10ish centimeters of snow. A white Christmas indeed. In the past 10 years I recall a couple Christmas's without snow. But the last two years we've def. made up for it.

With the Holiday season starting but in a way for us ending. I'm put in the weird place where I have to design for the next season ,even though all I want to make right now is super cozy and warm pieces yet I'm berried in pastel prints of linen and cotton.

As usual though I'm still going to make a couple of super wintery stuff. I just designed these wool tunics that are really warm and can be worn as a shirt or a dress. I'll post pictures of them when the buttons are on next week. In January, I will have couple new things but not as much as usual since today's fashion industry has made it very clear that you must be on sale after Christmas. Makes sense, but there's liker 2 or 3 more months of winter and that leaves me lots of time to offer you some more goodies.

Either then that, we're doing our first campaign shoot on January 4th in a barn with Ducks and Alpaca's. I'm really looking forward to that. It's so exciting to create an editorial look with my designs that I create for the everyday girl.

Anyways, I'll be showing all of you my new designs throughout the next couple of weeks. Give me your opinions, I'd love to hear it.

Catchframes are back !!

For a few years now, our lovely ginger haired girlfriend, Hilary Thompson's been crafting these beautiful and amazingly practical Catchframes. What is Catchframes you say? Let us explain. Catchframes are made from vintage frames, they're hand stitched, hand painted and dyed. Each unique frame comes with a pouch of long pins used as hooks to hang not only jewellery but anything that deserves to be displayed.

Speaking from a girl that received a Catchframe for X-mas last year, they are such good presents to give and get!

R.I.P. Bettie Page

One of the most recognizable women in history passed away today, Bettie Page. What girl doesn't have a fascination with the beautiful Pin Up girls. Their classic poses and outfits. I'm not the biggest fan of the pin up but I have always loved them. Bettie Page's beauty is one that is rare. A face that anyone can recognize and appreciate. For more information on her passing just follow this link www.bettiepage.com

OH Zooey

Zooey Deschanel

Every designer today needs some kind of representation from someone in the arts/entertainment world. People always ask me who I would see wearing my designs. It's been a hard question for me to answer, since I usually design thinking of icons of the past but Zooey Deschanel, I feel, represents my line perfectly. She is like a modern day Linda Ronstadt. A girl who is timeless, it's hard to tell from which decade she's in but in a weird way this decade suits her.

So if anyone out there knows Zooey, please let her know that Lustre has lots of skirts and dresses for her.

One of the Greats

Stevie Nicks is one of my biggest inspirations, I can't tell you how many dresses I have designed thinking about her. If you don't know who she is I highly recommend you go get yourself some Fleetwood Mac right Now. It will change your life .

It all starts here! I've been meaning to join my fellow designer/boutique friends and start a blog for my shop Lustre, the prettiest boutique in town! Obviously there's some catching up to do. And what better way to get this new project going than to show some new designs for the Holidays.
