"A couturier must be an architect for design, a sculptor for shape, a painter for color, a musician for harmony, and a philosopher for temperance." ~ Cristobal Balenciaga

Christmas Time's a Comin'

Hello Dear Readers!

I apologize for the delay in this post.  In addition to my regular work schedule, I was working long hours at the Toronto One Of A Kind Show for both Stefanie Bezaire & Wildhagen Hats the last couple of weeks - please check both of them out, their stuff is amazing!  I really enjoyed the show & wish I could have seen more of it!  But it was also quite exhausting, hence no new posts...  But there is a reward for those who wait because now it's getting close to Christmas, so this is a holiday-themed post!!

I LOVE Christmas!  No matter how grumpy I get about the snow & the cold, I still feel it's a magical & inspiring time of year.  I also adore the following festive fashion illustrations.  I hope they help get you in the holiday spirit :)
