A Fresh Start
News You Can Use
This section is devoted to interesting news in and around fashion.
This month I focus on Winter.
When I was growing up, there were one or two fashion trends each season. According to Paris Vogue, this winter we have about 24 fashion trends. I think we should each cultivate our own style.
Play. Enhance. Adorn.

Fabulous Fashionistas – Women To Admire
This Month I admire Sarah Jane Adams
At 62, she set up an Instagram account for her antique jewelry label, Sara Mai Jewels, that has garnered an impressive 157k following, thanks to her exuberant eclecticism and devil-may-care attitude.
In a world that all too often denigrates getting older, Adams is all about celebrating it.
Adams has always fiercely carved her own path. The jewelry-designer-turned-icon-of-ageing-fabulously names “aloneness, singularity, irreverence and rebellion” as her driving forces and makes a point of never seeking anyone’s approval but her own.
“We all have to make time to really get to know ourselves and understand who we are. Only then can we be truly strong and effective in this world.”
More about Sarah Jane Adams
Body Geometry is my system for designing and engineering clothing to fit the different body shapes: Circle, Square, Rectangle, Triangle, Inverted Triangle, and Hourglass.
Let’s talk about the Circle
If you have a circle shape torso, you have the most difficult shape to dress (you knew that already, of course). The length of your arms and legs will determine whether you should layer your clothes or go with asymmetrical lines. Longer limbs have the advantage with this shape, allowing for layering as well as asymmetry. Shorter limbs limit your options.
A good look for a Circle
Which shape are you? If you are unsure, come on in to my atelier, or send a picture of yourself, and I will advise you!
