It’s that time in the winter when you just want to forget it’s winter.
And it doesn’t look like we’re anywhere close to spring yet. Not at our head office in Toronto or in Charlotte, NC (Mooresville actually) where we run Suetables US. Wendy, our Sales Manager in the US, tells me there are consecutive SNOW DAYS this winter in North Carolina!
In Toronto, there’s constant snow and ice on the ground, and it keeps trying to melt, making the walkways super slippery - when I walk the dogs at frigid temperatures every morning.
So, dreaming up this spring line has really saved me.
We have loved designing this collection, planning this fun photo shoot and working with actress Sara Waisglass. She is known as one of the leads on TV's Degrassi:The Next Generation and is a bundle of youthful energy. Her smile is so infectious.
Sara lights up the room.
So, she was the perfect model for our resort spring collection. And I had a sinus cold that day...so Sara’s bubbly energy, coupled with great music and our photographer, Denise Grant’s, calming energy, got us all in the mood for spring. And I could almost breathe clearly again.
What is not to love about a pink bike, summer clothes (courtesy of Heidi Ho2 - love that store!) and spring flowers (thanks to By The Bunch) on a frigid -25 degree day?!
There are days of desperation where I look at my schedule, see that nothing really requires a specific outfit, and then out of pure winter exhaustion, I decide to forget about style altogether and just wear my favourite jeans, and jewelry of course.
In the winter, it’s nearly impossible to be very well-dressed with warm hats, big coats and layer upon layer. Well, at least not every day. There are miracle days, sure. That’s what we have Instagram for http://instagram.com/suetables.
But the rest of the time, you just do what you can, wait for spring, and enjoy some new bling!
I always love a new accessory…To give myself some sense of style, I have worn almost our entire spring line these past few weeks as it has trickled in from Thailand, Mexico and from local suppliers in Toronto and the US.
So, while we are firmly calling it the Spring Resort Line 2015, you can wear it now as a little pick-me up.
It worked for me.
The line embraces mixed metals, Czech crystals, brass dipped in 14K gold and sterling silver, and we have added some beads and crystals for colour and texture. And, as with most of our line, you can add personalization to give it a monogram or meaning...it’s entirely up to you.
