The Crash Giveaway!

Written by Sarah. Posted in design, DIY, FO, giveaway, knits, KYC Presents

Sweater season is already in full swing here in the city so there could be no better time for today’s post! As part of the Holla Knits blog tour, today I’m giving away a copy of The Crash!

The samples are shown with contrasting shoulders (Lion Brand Superwash Merino Cashmere and Lion Brand Alpine Wool) and in monotone (Unplanned Peacock Studio Superwash Merino Bulky and Unplanned Peacock Studio Superwash Merino Bulky both in Onyx). Like I’ve said before, it’s super extra fierce! It can be worn punky with a black skirt, fishnets, and boots or just spice up a pair of jeans with cute flats for an easy brunch look. I was inspired by those furry vests that never seem to go out of style, faux fur throws that decorate every Scandinavian-style living room, and diva shoulder details. I paired that with a contrasting, conservative diamond pattern to make straightforward menswear meet bold surprises. Go big or go home!

As far as construction, you couldn’t ask for a breezier knit. The sweater is knit flat in six pieces. The shoulder pads are attached before sleeves are set in. Voila!

I have to thank Allyson for embracing the craziness of this design! I love her wild style and so admire her for making Holla Knits all about patterns that are unconventional and downright fun.

Love This: Beyonce’s “Countdown” Music Video

Written by Sarah. Posted in music, want

Do you not love Beyonce?! I think she’s one of my heroes. She’s so fierce and confident! Don’t you want to be like her when you grow up? That being said, I think I’ve watched the new “Countdown” music video about 100 times! I love the homages to Funny Face mixed with modern hip hop dance.

I’ve collected a few things if you want to grow up to be Beyonce, too!

Scotch Naturals nailpolish in Troya, Pratillo loafers by Aldo, Merino turtleneck by J Crew, Lipstick Queen Big Bang Theory Illusion Gloss in Infinite, Eames Molded Plastic Chair from Herman Miller

Be fierce!
