Wooded Wonderland

As the leaves of the trees transition from summer to fall, the woods beckon us, inviting us to hike the trails of the changing landscape. There is a sense of the unknown as you enter the depths of the forest beneath the towering canopy of tree branches.
Designer Alberta Ferretti explored this wooded theme in her Fall 2016 collection. Dresses and coats feature textures, colors and prints that move through all aspects of the forest environment. 

A Pilgrim's Thanksgiving

With leaves falling, the smell of cinnamon in the air and the taste of pumpkin on your tongue, you know that Thanksgiving is here. With this holiday comes images of Pilgrims and the first Thanksgiving dinner in the new world.

Edwardian Elegance

The early 1900 Edwardian culture was a world of high society ladies in corsets and lace. It was a time when the ladies were always proper and put together, whether calling on one another for afternoon tea or sharing secrets at the season’s ball. The rules of society were begging to be broken, and who better than an orphan girl turned singer, known on the night club circuit as Coco, to redefine high class chic.
Today, we recognize black and white as a classically chic color combination. We label the little black dress (LBD) as synonymous with effortless beauty. Pearls are the perfect accessory for just about any look and sometimes a hat is just the needed piece to finish an outfit. But it wasn’t always this way. It took the foresight and designing genius of Coco Chanel to add these classic elements to our fashion vocabulary.
