This post may seem off subject from the many things I post about, but as a designer, I find inspiration for color, line and even historical references in interior design. So, two times a year, I spend more than a week looking at all the entries for the One Room Challenge. The One Room Challenge … Continue reading One Room Challenge.
While I was designing my womenswear collections and debuting them seasonally on the runways of StyleWeek Northeast in Providence, Rhode Island. I had the pleasure of being introduced to Kaye Claire Chapman. Although we never worked together while she was modeling, we did connect via social media and I'm sure glad we did. Recently Kaye … Continue reading #STYLEDBYK
This month I'm back at it, picking a new word. Last month I chose the word Leap- it was a perfect word to describe the big steps I took pitching my brand on a bigger platform than I had ever before. As I sent each proposal and pitch out, anxiety and a sense of accomplishment … Continue reading Word of the Month

With her, there was anxiety, nervousness and the fear of all the things I didn't know. Now, as a mom of two, the nervousness and fear subsides some, and although my son is totally … Continue reading Mother’s Day and A Giveaway!

Have you ever had the "OH $%&*" feeling after you sit down and see the tasks in front of you? That's how I feel this month. And it's the "oh #$%^" feeling of excitement, not dread. It's knowing I'm taking on tasks that are bigger than I've ever tackled before. They are pushing my creativity, … Continue reading Word of the Month
I'm three months into creating the coffee filter dress, and I'm happy with its progress. I've created puff styled sleeves, and will be adding a frill trim to the back bodice, which will allow for the Velcro to attach without being noticed. What has changed, which my husband (having witnessed all my creative endeavors) will … Continue reading Coffee Dress – the progress
Recently I found the fabric wrapping technique called Furoshiki. Furoshiki is a 1200 year old Japanese tradition that has recently been revived in gift giving and eco friendly circles. The technique, using a decorative piece of fabric to wrap a gift, dates back to the Nara period (710-794) and was used to protect items within … Continue reading Furoshiki- gift wrapping
Although the weather in New England doesn't feel like Spring (we just recently had a three week span of three back to back Nor'easters) that doesn't mean festival season isn't approaching. I've always loved seeing the images and eclectic styles captured at all the various festivals. This season there are 3 trends I'm loving and … Continue reading Festival Style
