an evening in the forest

Sep 26, 2013


I've been a bit slow to blog this week. Quite honestly, I've needed a wee computer/internet break. I tend to burn the midnight oil on mine way too often, and so, stepping back + getting back to the real world, feels, well, pretty awesome. I'm also working on my fall collection for my Etsy shop, Shore. I'm feeling inspired by a new aesthetic and can't wait to share it with you... I'm working with black (whisper thin) cable chain, brass, geometric shapes, chevron pendants, raw crystal, and adding a few hand-painted pendants too. It'll be a really fun collection and quite different from my previous summer pieces. Fun, right?! For me, creativity is all about moving forward and trying new things.

Next week-ish, I'm also working on a fantastic fashion feature with Emma magazine. I'll be styling and shooting an outfit for their December issue. I'm beyond excited about that!!  

And then, ah October, I'm very excited for the upcoming month. I'm hosting a vegetarian (Canadian) thanksgiving dinner at our home. Plus, planning a Halloween potluck... hopefully with costumes (ahem, if my friends are reading this!), caramel apples and a yummy fall stew. What's your October looking like?... 

15 sweet notes:

  1. I can't wait to see your new designs! And I soooo wish I could come to your Halloween potluck (I'm the biggest Halloween fan).

  5. I love the vibe of these photos!! And I'm also doing the Emma Magazine styling feature! I'll be so excited to have my photo along with yours!! xo

  6. I know these technically aren't outfit photos... but after oohing and awwing over the abordableness that is Scout (seriously, so cute!), my eyes went straight to your boyfriend jeans! I've been looking for the perfect pair forever (or at least it feels that way) and every time I see someone looking fabulous in them, I swoon. So excited for your feature in Emma Magazine - I can't wait to see it! I have a few exciting things lined up in October but so far most of the month in a blank slate... time to try some new things, I think!

  7. Congrats on the feature! I can't wait to see your new collection also, I need to bite the bullet and order a necklace already! Your fall plans sound superb, I'm bummed I won't be in canada during october this year :(

    These photos are SO beautiful!

  14. these photos are absolute magic V! dreamy + dark and moody = Lynn's eyes filled with insp!!!! i'm also on par with your move away from the glaring computer screen, it's an addictive thing but sometimes you just gotta make a break for it and i'd say you conquered the hurdle with ecstatic tour de force.

    the new plans for Shore sound amazing, can't wait to see the results of your intensively loved on labours. ooo, fashion feature should prove to be out of this world too, what wonderful happenings!!! excited for you Veronika :) well, you know what our October is looking like...paws, paws and more PAWS!!!! yahhhhhhhhhhhhhh. xo
