This long weekend has probably been filled with yummy goodies for most of us on the Western hemisphere. What if the ingredients are masterfully juxtaposed on a plate to become too beautiful to eat? Some creative foodies, like Lauren Purnell, designed a series of food art plates named "Culinary Canvas" utilizing all kinds of fruit, veggies and herbs. The result is certainly an eye candy!
Hope, everyone had a great (and indulgent) Thanksgiving!
Have you felt the so-called "November Polar Vortex" yet? I not only heard about it in my local weather report, but also felt the piercing wind and dreadful chill as soon as I peeked my nose into outdoors. As a fashionista, not only do I want to be cozy and warm in that frigid torment, I also want to style my look with a trendy appeal. I came across several recent editorials to serve an inspiration and a visual warmth. Indeed, fur (especially long and hairy) undeniably is an ongoing trend for chilly days like today and a long winter ahead.
It's been a while since I visited my studio for a sewing project, as recent months were filled with lots of activities outside the blog. This summer I purchased a gorgeous wool chevron fabric in heather and charcoal tones as I anticipated to start exploring the outerwear in my Fabric Project series. Initially, the idea was to design a coat, but I always dreamed of a cape. A cape undoubtedly makes a statement, worn historically by leaders of revolution and free spirit. When I saw the design below by Valentino in exact same fabric, and the four-digit price, I nearly fell from my chair. I thought "This is it! I'm making a cape!"
So, wish me luck, as I'm a little nervous sewing outerwear, but I'll do my best and "Look of the Day" post will follow shortly.
