ORA ET LABORA Co. represents emerging and independent designers from Italy, Argentina, and the USA. Their intention is to empower culture, preserve heritage, and create a new approach to global community, artisanship, and individualism. The shop is full of truly unique, well though out pieces – I’m especially drawn to the paper necklace seen above.
Brisbane, Australia-based Rachel Burke is a multidisciplinary artist and designer known for her vibrant, tactile designs, and wild tinsel creations. Her custom styles are immediately recognizable and should be considered wearable art. Since starting out with her original short tinsel jacket, Burke has expanded her collection to include longer jackets, dresses, and headpieces.
I prefer to stay in on New Year’s Eve – maybe it’s the introvert in me or maybe the old lady. What I’d like to do is have a small dinner party where everyone dresses up as if they were going out, then after dinner we all change into our pajamas until the ball drops at midnight. It’s the best of both worlds! Anyway, if you are headed out on the town here are a few dresses that would be a great way to start 2019!
It’s already freakin’ freezing here in Pennsylvania! This weekend’s plans will include swapping out lightweight closet pieces for layers and sweaters and seeing what else I may need to pick up to fill in the holes. I’ve already grabbed a mid-length sherpa jacket with a low pile, a few sweaters, and some new socks – what’s on your shopping list?
Because it’s only two weeks from yesterday if you live in the States and will be celebrating. Thanksgiving legitimately snuck up on me this year, which is unfortunate since it’s the holiday I host. I have no clue what I’ll be wearing either – most likely something from my closet that I add to. Maybe that’s your plan as well? A roomy shirt or sweater so you don’t have to suck it in, or a sweet dress that will transition well to all of those holiday parties next month, or just adding a great piece of jewelry to an outfit you already own to mix things up. All fine plans of action.
