How about a little luxury at a special price?!? Happy Fri-yay friends!! How does a little luxury at a fantastic, jaw dropping price sound? Too good to be true? No way, it’s as true as my love for coffee, cashmere and my pups! Ok, first some sad news…Cambridge 1.0 and 2.0 are being discontinued. […]

And just like that it’s August and the color of the month is…. Selvedge! Selvedge. The color of blue jeans. I know jeans are the basis for 90% of my wardrobe so it seems appropriate that Selvedge could be a great launch pad for knit garments and accessories (all those cute colorwork wraps, hats, mitts […]
