Despite what the weatherman is telling me about Sunday’s forecast, I definitely heard little birdies chirping this morning so I am now giving myself full license to think about spring clothing.
Two local designers recently released their new collections and I am particularly enamored:
Beki Wilson, owner and designer behind the wearable Out of Line, has long been known her exquisite sewing skills and love of jersey cotton, but this print skirt is a new evolution for her—and it is to die for.
When I recently interviewed Lizzie Parker, who will appear on NBC’s Fashion Star starting March 13, she mentioned that the show had inspired her to be more innovative with her much-loved knitwear designs. Apparently, she wasn’t kidding: Parker’s new frocks, leggings and tops are coated with a hand-treated wax coating that gives comfy, cozy knits the same sheen as leather. I am especially fond of the very rocker black version.
And while we are talking clothes, sweet online site Olivine is running a killer sale on scarves, accessories and even a select few pieces of Prairie Underground; click through now for deals up to 50% off.
