Playlist: Alternative Twin Peaks

We took a crack at putting together a playlist of songs that could easily fit into the Twin Peaks world.  We’ve got lots of Laura Palmer songs, but ones for Donna, Audrey, Norma and Big Ed, and even Bobby.

“Because when I fall into the abyss, I go straight into it, head down and heels up, and I’m even pleased that I’m falling in just such a humiliating position, and for me I find it beautiful. And so in that very shame I suddenly begin a hymn. Let me be cursed, let me be base and view, but let me also kiss the hem that garment in which my God is clothed; let me be following the devil at the same time, but still I am also your son, Lord, and I love you, and I feel a joy without which the world cannot stand and be.”
– from the Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky

Spring 2017 Trends: Rainbow

To be perfectly honest, embracing all of ROY G. BIV come springtime isn’t that much of a trend–we all know things get lighter and brighter as the sun returns with full force. So here are some rainbow outfits just for fun!

Spring 2017 Trend Report: Belts

Both myself and CF advising editor Lydia were coming of age where belted everything was a trend–cardigans, blazers, and skirts with a belt were a wardrobe staple for us for years. Lydia observed that we are “so there” for belts, trend-wise. We’re happy to see this trend come full circle, and evidently designers are too since this was one of the most popular looks we saw this season.

The Olsen twins have a serious problem with diversity–their lookbook above is no exception. They very rarely feature models of colour. At least they’re offering fetching obi-inspired belts.

The simplicity of a minimal black belt as seen above and below lends a surprising amount of definition and edge to an otherwise sweet dress.

Note that belts featured heavily in both of Miuccia Prada’s lines–Prada and Miu Miu.

Love the juxtaposition of the prim belt above with the undeniably glam lurex dress at Vanessa Seward above.

Spring 2017 Trend Report: Cardigans

Everyone goes for a sharp structured jacket as the weather warms–go the other way and keep things soft with a cardigan. I mean, if Prada is doing it you know you’re headed in the right direction.

The minimalist, graphic earrings paired with the bold striped cardi above keep things sophisticated and not too twee.

The crop top and super shiny metallic shoes keep the ruffly cardigan above from getting too stuffy.

Spring 2017 Trend Report: Witchy

Are you a good witch or a bad witch? This spring, you can be both!

Imagery and awareness of magic and witchy women have grown increasingly the last couple years especially in the public eye. The fashion world has taken note, that is for certain. Whether you are a die-hard Stevie Nicks’ aesthetic, or are curious as to what Hermione Granger might wear should she embrace her inner wild woman, here are some looks from the Spring ’17 catwalks for inspiration. As always, all of these looks have been taken from design houses run by women!

Above: Wendy Nichol, Spring 2017

Wendy Nichol’s collections are always magic, regardless of season. The hood on this outfit is what makes it special.

Above: Cynthia Rowley, Spring 2017

A very water-goddess look from Cyntha Rowley above.

Above: Aganovitch, Spring 2017

Feel like the Aganovitch look above veers more towards Middle Earth wanderer, but hey, it takes all types.

Above: Alberta Ferretti, Spring 2017

Above: Cushnie et Ochs, Spring 2017

Above: Melitta Baumeister, Spring 2017

This Melitta Baumeister look above is probably my favourite of all these.

A more classic goddess look above from Phoebe English.

The small streak of blood-red lipstick on the lower lip of all the models in the Veronique Branquinho show above made a huge impact. Note to self!
