Okay, you know that London has been a red-hot design center like forever. From rock bands to rockin' models the Brit fashion world always delivers with items that are distinctively different. A case in point is this "To The Nines" red smooth leather and suede designer handbag from Black Tangerine.
It's a perfect red accessory for Valentine's Day and any day that you want to brighten up a black, navy or grey outfit. Or brighten a really dreary day by going all bright and mixing bright accessories with bright dresses or separates. "To the Nines" is also a great accent for your fave jeans and casual jacket. "Nine" is the ideal size...large without being gi-normous.
"Nines is now in stock in my Brownstone shoppe in red and also in a deep, rich purple and they're 30% off!

Love the lace trend for now into spring and summer! What better way to wear it than in a soft vintage feel knit tunic, not tee, in a perfect shade of ballet pink. It is just right as a pastel contrast with a long black skirt,leggings or skinny denim jeans. Or pop it on with a beige or ivory skirt. I have a few of these left and you can snap them up at 20% savings.
Love at first sight? Believe it! This leather handbag stole your heart at first glance. From its high fashion profile to its metallic leather finish, here’s a handbag that creates instant chemistry with its easy sophistication and attention to details.
See this "Amour" handbag, along with a collection of Black Tangerine "Retro" and "Magical Realism" designs in my shoppe in Brownstone Village. Markdowns have been taken just in time for Valentine's Day gifting.
When you drop into Brownstone Village this evening for the big Luck, Love, Laughter event be sure to stop by Windward Trading Company for Valentine's gifts from you to you and to special friends. Check out these chained heart pendants that I have in combos of silver and black or silver, gold and black.
They're crazy priced and you get my 20% off Valentine's sale price on all regularly priced items. Also check out my own CassideeJane designs that I make. I have a long antique brass chain with heart pendant, some long black chain heart earrings and long multi-chain heart and cross necklace.
In my Brownstone shoppe you'll find these great stackable, lightweight acrylic cuffs. They're hinged and have a cool leaf motif! Sprinkle some into your accessory collection for just a little added gleam, not bling.They look great with grays and the softer colors transitioning into spring. Available in silvertone and anthracite.[Just $9.95]

In February the weather still lends itself to inside reflections, good books, old movies, a dose of Reality TV [Project Runway, Launch My Line, The Bachelor, and yes American Idol] and lots of web surfing. While we're still bundling up in cozy scarves and layers, it doesn't mean that we can't fast forward to thoughts of warmer days as we filter in some soft ballerina pinks, beigey pinks, ivory, alabaster, beige and grays.
[At The Brownstone I have some wonderful crinkled scarves in ivory and natural as well as some ombre charcoal mufflers and amazingly soft woven yarn beige and ivory scarves.]
I love a cozy tunic with leggings and gray or black are the perfect background that we all love. Some of the casual clothing that I am most attached to in winter are grey. There's something very comforting about the color and the more textures the better. Sweats, camis, thermal tops in light gray, a sweat shirt in charcoal as well as a gray cashmere sweater, long and short sleeve cotton tees and tops and charcoal yoga pants, a great knit tunic and a gray knit sweater dress. Wearing gray is relaxing...cacooning at its best. It's also the only phsychologically neutral color.
I am also loving all of the drapey designs in tops, tunics and dresses and hope that they are with us for awhile. [At the Brownstone I have some gray drape front dresses that are sleeveless, but perfect for layering right now.]
