Fisherman Sweater

While I was lying in the hammock and reading the New York Times Style section this morning, PERFECTION is the word that came to my mind. This joy was not because it was a beautiful day or the amazing yoga class I attended this morning but because of a Theory ad. As you know, I wrote a post about the fisherman’s/aran sweater trend. I feel everyone should add this sweater to their wardrobe because it is such a versatile piece. It can be dressed up or worn casually and would look amazing with …

How to add lucite to your world

As you already know from my previous posts such as black and white and silver, I always appreciate when fashion and interiors follow the same trend. In my world, the two certainly influence each other. Lucite has been popular in interiors and we are now seeing fashion designers create accessories in the material.

I started doing some research and found patterns to be mixed everywhere. This post will …
