Shop News: Tweed Cables Series

I have a new handmade series in my Etsy shop, The Sparkling Cocktail! Tweed Cables is a series of a hand knit cabled fingerless gloves in a soft wool tweed in four different heather gray colors. I love the intricate cable pattern on these and the right and left hand mirror each other. The palm side is a flat knit. Ribbing makes up the top, bottom, and thumb. These are really warm, enjoy!

Shop News: La Bohéme Series

One of my favorite handmade bridal garter series in my Etsy shop, The Sparkling Cocktail, is La Bohéme. This garter series evokes the Flapper era when ladies used decorative garters to keep their stockings up all day. The peacock feather is a symbol of their style and grace. 

All of my garters are made up of a minimum of five parts; two kinds of laces, satin ribbon on the front and back, and elastic in the casing. No stretch lace, here! 

The La Bohéme series is no different. I use blonde, pink, and latte peacock feathers mixed with different color laces and satins. Listings are for either sets or single tossers.

Mid-Week Inspiration: Tweed

When ever thoughts of  an ideal Autumn or Winter wardrobe come to mind, as they do this time of year, I gravitate toward tweeds. I love the texture, flecks of color, and sturdy warmth it provides. I also love the classic styling that always looks chic.

Classic Chanel. 1950's. 


Menswear inspired. Biba. 1960's/70's. 


Sears. 1950's. Yes! To each of those pencil skirts!


What fabric are you drawn to time and time again? What is your go to Autumn wardrobe staple?
