Lately we’re really feeling jeans that are jazzed up. With the holidays right around the corner, adding a little sparkle or flair to your pair makes them all the more festive. Last year we were all about the embellished sweater, but this time around we think its time that the jeans got a chance to shine! We love the look paired with a basic tee or sweater that really lets the look of the embellished denim shine through.

This season fashionistas are going full-force with faux fur! We’re seeing the most stylish ladies rocking colorful coats that have a life of their own whenever the wind picks up. We love this over-the-top style, and it sure helps that you get to walk around in a comfy cozy blanket! Years ago faux fur was met with looks of disdain, but the game has changed and now we’re seeing this unique textile in high-quality finishes and fun colors. Another added bonus of going faux? The lower price tag means more room for experimentation. You want a hot pink fur coat that is guaranteed to only be on trend for one season? You do it.
When it comes to fall colors, there’s one that is almost always in our homes, on our feet, and dominating the landscape. We’re talking about a neutral that goes with almost everything, and imparts an undeniable classic flair: cognac. The color is like its namesake; woodsy and warm with a hint of masculinity.
Cognac is the perfect shade of brown for leather accessories like bags and boots. A pair of cognac boots and skinny dark-wash jeans are a match made in heaven for fall.
Want to make your home feel cozy, rugged, and also somehow luxurious? Enter the cognac leather couch. This warm color makes your home inviting, especially when used on such a statement piece in the room.
While cognac may seem to take a backseat to other fall wedding colors, don’t be fooled! This beautiful brown makes its way into wedding decor through leather and wooden accents.
Embroidery artist, Ana Teresa Barboza isn’t your average needlepoint star. She takes a medium that has often been relegated to high-society women in history books, and breathed life into this forgotten art form by thinking outside the box, or in this case, the hoop. Barboza created a collection of landscapes that appear to be growing out of the embroidery hoop, and take on a life of their own with wide knits and knots crawling out of the frame.
But she doesn’t stop at landscapes. Barboza also recreates plants and uses the natural likeness of thread to roots to create a multi-dimensional piece that straddles reality and art.
While florals have always been a popular theme for embroidered art, this ain’t your average throw pillow art. The bold colors and unique outline of the female figure make this piece a standout.

When sitting in a college classroom, most people look to their classmates for fashion inspiration. You see a cute bag across the way, a nice pair of boots on your neighbor next to you, but rarely do you look at the person at the very front of the room. We’re talking about the older professor in the stereotypical tweed jacket with the suede elbow patches. We’re taking a cue from that academic style, and imparting it into some of our favorite fall fashions in the way of elbow patches! Elbow patches instantly add a little something to an otherwise typical sweater or cardigan.
