Time is flying and there are only 4 days left in the Violet Hour Fashion campaign to raise an additional $11,000. There has been amazing support so far with over 80 backers who have pledged over $15,000! Kickstarter is an all or nothing crowd funding platform and if we don’t meet the final goal, the current pledge of $15,000 goes back to all the supporters. We don’t want that, do we?

This is the time to pledge and help USA made fashion come to market – and I need is the WordPress community’s help! Pledge, create more buzz, spread the word and help a startup fashion company really their wings!

This post feels sentimental for many reasons. I haven’t posted in a LONG time because my free time is pretty much non-existent between my part time job, launching my fashion collection, the Violet Hour, and planning my wedding! Also, this blog turns 5 years old in a few months which is wild and even though my days posting are coming to a close, all the food, travel and fashion posts really did enrich my life over that time!

Here is the exciting news. The Violet Hour Fashion collection has launched!  I decided to use my fashion background to create a sleepwear line that embodies clean and classic silhouettes. Current market offerings are easily defined into pajamas, lingerie or activewear, yet the Violet Hour is more. It is the end to a busy day, when the sun sets and lights up the sky in purples, blues and violets. As night begins, every woman will choose their attire for maximum comfort. Instead of kitschy pajamas and sexy lingerie, the Violet Hour is comfortable and classic sleepwear that enables all women to feel beautiful in their own element.

Currently, my biggest push for the collection is additional funding to bring the designs to market quicker and to do that, I launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise $27,628.00! There has been a ton of positivity around this collection and I am excited that so far my community has pledged $3,209 towards my goal. That is big love and support and I am so grateful! With Kickstarter if I don’t reach my goal 100%, I don’t get any of the funds that were pledged. It’s all or nothing and there are 20 more days to raise the additional funds needed. So do you see why every single one of you is important!? If all you can give is $5.00 – that means I am that much closer and it definitely helps.

With your support, I can reach my goal so please visit my Kickstarter to pledge and my website to learn more about my collection! The WordPress community has been an amazing place over the years to share my creativity and I hope you can support this entrepreneurial endeavor of mine!

This is a really exciting blog post so I will get to the point. My Mountain Man proposed! He set up the sweetest evening for us a few weeks back and I couldn’t have asked for more. We had had a delicious dinner at the Squeaky Bean, a farm to table restaurant in downtown Denver, and afterwards he surprised me by stopping by Union Station. We had drinks at the Cooper Lounge and my best friend and photographer Colleen, popped in while Mountain Man popped the question! I am a lucky lady to have amazing photos to keep the memories alive. To end the evening we stayed at the Crawford Hotel in Union Station, stocked with champagne and roses. Swoon. I mean. If anyone knows me, this was my favorite night ever.

Thanks to my guy for the evening, I can’t wait to marry my best friend!

Ever since we moved into our row home, our bedroom was my last focus for arranging and making homey. It took me a while to acquire all the knick knacks that I had in mind for the wall behind our bed and everything came together before the holidays.

To start, I had the ‘branch light’ idea in my arsenal for a while now but had to get my mountain man on board. Surprisingly he loved the idea! I had to wait on him to find the perfect branch, my choice was too dainty. Boys. Once the branch was settled we ordered a corded light from a very affordable Etsy shop – Junkyard Lighting and then attached everything to the wall. Or he did. * I forgot to take a before picture until after the light was up, pretend you don’t see it!

Finishing up the wall space, I used an array of items found from vintage shopping with meaningful tid-bits thrown in. Who can resist a tiny felted wool owl or an embroidery of the Orion’s Belt? Now with our bedroom complete, it crosses off the last big ‘to-do’ of the row home. Time to relax and enjoy!

Please don’t judge. It has been over a year, A YEAR, since I blogged a fashion post and there are a few good reasons. Biggest reason #1. This year has been a year of saving and that means not a lot of clothes shopping. Yet, a pretty cool guy heard me complaining about sans-shopping and treated me to a little Anthropologie gift card. I babied my gift card for the perfect sale options. Thus, this new knit pleat dress over the weekend. It’s comfy, cute and versatile!
