fall fall fall

I've been busy working up a storm on the new F/W collection and the upcoming collection shoot and decided to share a little sneak peek of some of my new favourite supplies.

This collection has been a blast to design. I often take inspiration from a variety of places, and my design process varies from calculated to organic. This collection was the first where all it took was a few supplies that seemed to shout out what they wanted to be. Before I knew it I had a large collection that shares an overall aesthetic with my previous collections, but in a way, stands entirely on it own. Whats so unique about this collection is that it features loads of leather and suede in deep burgundy, sandy tan, a rich soft black, buttery soft grey, and my personal favourite, a rare vintage leather cord. Expect lots of leather and suede straps mixed with aged brass and vintage crystals and several new options for chain/crystal colour combinations. I've also added a number of new styles of bracelets, and even have a new crystal bodychain that I couldn't be more excited about. I can't wait to show off everything in the F/W look book, but until then look forward to my mid season styling session, coming soon.


Sneak Peek: Styling Session F/W 11

Styling session with a few old pieces and a bunch of new ones, coming soon



SO busy! I should probably be posting about all the super exciting Dolorous things that have been keeping me so busy, like working on the new collection, getting tons of crazy new materials (the likes of which you've never seen in my shop before . . .), doing an awesome styling shoot with my very good friend and current roommate Sacha (she leaked a sneak peek on her blog here) AND getting a new ad on a great blog coming soon . . . but I'm not.

No, I don't really want to talk about that right now because I'd rather talk about how I'm so excited that its fall and I get to get back into all of my favourite snuggly sweaters and awesome boots, and how in honour of my favourite season I went out and bought a whole bunch of new favourite boots and sweaters! YAY! I'm not really one to take pictures of my own stuff, or of me in outfits but I will say that I bought two pairs rad Dolce Vita boots, including some killer black platform wedge booties and some awesome vintage sweaters including the most amazing mustard coloured sweater I've ever seen in my life. Thank you fall :)
