New T-Shirts!

I just created a few new designs for Stylesse T-shirts. (The designs are available on tank tops as well). My future goal is to create a line of clothing to accompany the handbags (not, not matchy-matchy!!), but since I'm just starting out, I wanted to begin with some cool tanks and tees. What do you think of these new designs?

Stylesse in print...

So today I received an e-mail from the Senior Editor of a fairly well-known fashion magazine who wants to feature some of my bags in their October issue! I'm beyond excited!

I've blurred the magazine cover and will reveal it in October, when it is printed. First person to guess the right magazine may win a gift from Stylesse!

(I'll announce the winner in October.)

I’m in love with Michael Kors…

Ok, so I’m a Project Runway groupie. I love the original designs, the professionalism of Tim Gunn and the snarkiness of Nina Garcia, but most of all, the fabulousness of Michael Kors. I really adore his design aesthetic. I’d been eyeing the MK Astor Pumps for months and actually bought them a few months ago in the “Luggage” color, but returned them because they didn’t really match anything in my wardrobe.

But today, I found them on sale at Macy’s, marked down to $20 (from $129!!!). This color, “Chamois”, is a bit more versatile, and I can pair it up with the Stylesse Karma Chameleon Clutch, the Anthropologie Olive Swirl turtleneck, and Radcliffe Denim – Skinny Jeans.

What do you think of this outfit?

Olympus Fashion Week ~ Spring 2007

Back in January, I read in the Wall Street Journal about a company that dresses models backstage during Fashion Week. So of course I immediately applied to work with them. I mean, who wouldn't want to work in the tents at a major fashion show? So 2 days ago, I received an email from the company stating that I had been selected to work at Olympus Fashion Week (Spring 2007 Collections). Oh, the joy!

So today I attended an orientation for the position, where the covered rules and regulations, and other exciting details. I don't know yet which show(s) I can attend - I'll keep you posted. But does it really matter? I'm going to Fashion Week!

New fall collection!

So I recently completed my handbags for the Fall 2006 Collection. Since I am an 'emerging designer' (love that title!), I kept the collection to a minimum. Pictured from top to bottom are the new items:

Whips & Chains - Mini Hobo (pictured in "Chocolate")
Leather Basketweave - Tote (pictured in "Chocolate")
Lightning Strikes - Tote (pictured in "Storm")
Envelope - Clutch (pictured in "Retro")

(All items are available at www.stylesse.com)
