Hyper Real Brights

Neon has a special place in my heart; perhaps because I was a child of the 80s. Ive always been drawn to colours that resemble highlighters. This is definitely one of my favourite colour trends for 2012; in small doses neon can be a great accent to your style, even at home.

DIY Cocktail Dress

I like to sew something new every year or so; usually if I have a wedding or formal occasion. I made this mint green dress for a wedding I had two years ago, but I still love its unique cut & shape. This dress was my most ambitious project to date; it was made entirely by draping. The shoulder gathering and hem were definitely a challenge to say the least. As wedding season kicks off, here is some inspiration.

Florals Stripes

The lines between fashion and décor have been blurred; whats hot in fashion is also on trend when decorating. I wanted to feature a series of my favorite 2012 trends in design. First up, mixing florals and stripes; not for the timid but a great way to add drama to your look or home décor. Stay tuned for next Monday’s design trend feature.
