NOVEMBER MOODBOARD // 14

november-moodboard-coco-kelley

The problem with doing a November moodboard when your head is already in holiday mode is this… Clearly, my brain is starting to sway into reds and fresh winter whites already! Of course, the grey rain is lending a bit to this board as well… The cold snap we’re about to have is making me […]

    I do like the black & white gingham. This year I used a blue & brown plaid runner for my table and then put a little pumpkin at each place setting. Doing something different really spiced up the table.

    Your moodboards are always so inspiring. (I think they’re my favorite posts!) They make me think about the feel of the seasons differently, and this one especially has me rethinking November for the better. I’ll have to incorporate more black and grey into my holiday palette!

      Callie, thank you so much for saying so! They’re my favorites too – I feel like they give me focus for the month ahead and I love the way they reveal where my design aesthetic and mood are at!

HALLOWEEN COCKTAIL :: THE SWAMP SPICE FLIP

the swamp spice flip cocktail recipe coco kelley2

Now, unless you’re actually hosting a Swamp-themed Halloween party like ours, you may not want to give such a delicious drink such an atrocious name. In this case, however, it fit quite nicely. But, if you’d like to give it a proper name, we’ll call it the Spiced Pear Flip… If you’re feeling so bold, you might […]

GET THE LOOK :: HEAD-TO-TOE GREY

the-the-look-head-to-toe-grey

First Birkenstocks, now endless layers of grey? Seattle sure seems to be right on trend these days, doesn’t it? But when you actually live in the grey (or with the guys who are still wearing socks with their birks) the trend doesn’t always seem quite as appealing. However – being a black-and-white girl myself, I happen to […]

    I thought it was silly when I heard grey was going to be a huge fall trend, but now I’ve found my closet full of it. I ADORE that chunky grey knit in the second photo.

FASHIONABLE DETAILS :: CÉLINE WINTER 14/15

celine winter 14/15 // kira bunse

When you’re actually attending a fashion show, the clothing that swishes by you on the runway goes so quickly that you rarely have a chance to actually appreciate the details. The cut, the color, the fabric, the way it flows on the model – none of that is lost. But, the hardware, the craftsmanship, and […]

    Gorgeous photos! And nice post! Thanks for helping point the focus back on the actual clothes, construction, fabrics and fit. It was refreshing to read your point of view on one of the fall collections, highlighting the sumptuous details! I noticed the single earring from this show a few months ago, (loved the vintage vibe!) and am also intrigued to try it!

    Thanks for sharing these beautiful images ! You are right – the creative details are what’s most interesting about a particular collection and are always inspiring to learn.
    Love Céline and felt that there were a couple of strong collections at the Paris Fashion Week S/S15 too (like Valentino !) :) Thanks again !
