Burda Style…

I am totally in love with the new spring/ summer patterns on Burda Style. To be honest this is one of my favorite sewing and fashion sites. Burda Style also has lots of awesome give-aways.





Spring Inspirations…

28 01 2011

January is just coming to an end and signs of spring have been popping up everywhere, especially in the fashion world. When the weather gets near fifty thoughts of spring fill my mind. Earlier this month I talked about some fun sewing challenges in the blog world, but there is one that has me hooked. Colette Patterns is having a Spring Palette Challenge. I have been so excited about this challenge and have been looking at some amazing spring pieces for inspiration. I decided to put together my own spring palette inspired from these runway pieces found on Elle.

I am so in love with the spring 2011 collections here are a few of my favorites:  Fendi (photos 1-4) the colors are awesome!  Junya Watanabe (5-6) I love the name and always love navy and cream, chevron stripes and sheer fabric.  D&G (7) is so much fun. I love the use of gingham especially the large checks!  And Rebecca Taylor (8-9) just makes me melt. I love her palette and romantic pieces. The color samples are form Rit. A the cool thing about Rit Dye is you can mix them to make the exact shade you are dreaming of.

Stay tuned next week when I pull together a couple of patterns or ideas of what I am going to make for the Spring Palette Challenge.  What are some of your spring inspirations?

Have a wonderful Friday!

Love, Rebecca

I love this black knit dress that is shot with gold thread. Its perfect for a holiday party. Fun without being too dressy. It would also look cute with a pair of boots for a night out with friends.  $35

fall fashion 102

18 09 2010

At Roulette, we love bright colors, boots and blue jeans!  There’s no need to go all drab for fall.  Think of all those great fall leaf colors.  Burgundy, red, yellow, orange and the blue of the sky.





Fall Fashion 101

12 09 2010

Just because it’s fall, doesn’t mean that you need to put on a wool sweater to feel seasonal.  And lets face it.  It is way too hot here in North Carolina for any wool action now.  The nights are cooling off though and I am very excited to break out my western boots.  My favorite way to transition is to throw some boots with a cotton dress.  One of the great things about living in NC is that so many of our clothes work year around.  A cotton dress can be paired with tights, boots and a sweater or a cute jean jacket to take it into the fall.  But it’s still cool enough for those days when the sun is blazing!  Versatility is awesome.
