It seems like cheating to call this a full year in review, since I started this little blog in July of 2015, but I’m not one to pass up a chance for reflection. Much like ready-to-wear, sometimes hand made garments don’t end up being as beloved as you had hoped. Others end up surprising you, getting washed every week and becoming staples in your wardrobe. I think we can learn a lot from these pieces, about who we really and our true sense of self. Of course it’s not surprising that lounge wear gets a lot of time in the ring, but that doesn’t mean your a lazy slob (I hope), it probably means that you prefer a relaxed fit and a casual style.
Without further ado, here is my roundup for 2015!
