Wanderlust: English Lakes, Rogue Territory and Lifestyle Photography

Monday, November 17, 2014

I'm having severe Wanderlust.  Check out at these beautiful shots taken by John Parminter  of England's Lake District & the Scottish Highlands.  I'm a sucker for lifestyle/fashion photography and Noah Sahady hit the nail on the head with his "Explore" book.  I came across his site via Rogue Territory, a men's brand focused on handcrafted denim made here in the US.  There pant and jacket collection for F/W 2014 is pure quality and they did an amazing layout for Collective Quarterly  Magazine.  RGT is sold locally in Totem on 535 South Street.  They are a pretty badass menswear store and stock brands such as Filson, Steven Allen, Danner Boots, and Raleigh Denim. Now, I'm itching to grab my backpack, throw on my hiking boots and gear-up for a new adventure...

Northeast Outlets: Philadelphia Mills

I haven't been to Philadelphia Mills in a few years, and to be perfectly honest...I am not a big "mall shopper".   The previously named Franklin Mills, has been revamped and rebranded as the Philadelphia Mills by Simon Malls.  From the newly opened outlet shops to the friendly sales associates, it's unfortunate that I don't live in the Northeast to shop here more often.  I did a little shopping in the Express outlet, very excited to find the perfect pair of Boyfriend jeans for only $40!  For all you fashionistas, the BCBG Max Azria dress selection--->amazing.  Other great shops include Neiman Marcus Last Call, Nordstrom Rack, Saks Off 5th, H&M, Ann Taylor LOFT and Banana Republic.
Complete store list here.

Rustic Wedding Invitations for a Winery Wedding

Tuesday, November 4, 2014

Your late 20's....the beginning of what seems like an endless social life filled with events surrounding an u marriage celebration.  As much as we may complain, I would say 7 out of 10 wedding celebrations are a great time.  I not only have the pleasure of being apart of my cousin's wedding, but I was asked to design the wedding invitations for the lovely couple!

It will be held at the beautifully renovated Rosebank Winery in Bucks County. If I'm lucky enough, pictures will be posted of the beautiful bride and groom following the festivities!  

Lovin' the design? I'd love to design a set for your upcoming nuptials!  Check out my contact page for further info.

Sweater Weather: Fair Isle Jumpers

Monday, November 3, 2014

Getting pretty chilly out here people! Time to dig up the knitwear and throw on the layers to keep these winds at bay.  Fair isle and western prints all the way.  I'm on the hunt for another blanket coat, but I think I found my favorite fair Isle prints of the season from Pl├╝mo: The Samsoe Sweater $162
