Poinsettia

Blog feature sessions, Designers

Ready for a little holiday inspired fashion?  Kate Miles (you may remember her Snowflake Kisses feature in our Winter 2014 issue!) has designed new pieces for the season…I designed this holiday inspired two piece outfit on one snowy morning when the ground looked like my kitchen counter after having baked a batch of Christmas cookies. The morning not only inspires the structured lace in the tea length skirt, but also this Christmas cookie baking photo-shoot. Red wool cascades down from the shoulder of the 1940s inspired blouse and buttons to the skirt waistband with lace covered buttons. 

This outfit is available for sale in my Etsy shop KateMilesCouture 

Models: Lena Sheroder and Tucker Stultz

Winter Wonder with Salt City Emporium

Blog feature sessions, Designers, Giveaways, Models

When Salt City Emporium asked us if we wanted to do a little Holiday collaboration, we took one look at their holiday line and jumped on it.  Their pieces are the perfect blend of funky, fun and comfy (and everyone needs a little gold splash for their holiday duds).

Team it up with some yummy knits from Georgia Blue and you have yourself the perfect ensemble for your little one.

We were dying over their adorable pillows when they arrived (and how cute is the leash from Chapman At Sea??  Made for your real life pup but we just couldn’t giving our stuffed Fido the real deal!).

And guess what?  A lucky reader will receive their very own set of the “Good Day and Good Night” cushions!!  Just head over to our Instagram page (@dreamerjournal) to enter to win!!!
