Hello Fabbers!

I haven't posted here is a while, as I decided to take a break for personal reasons. But I have been thinking about style (of course!)

In January, one of my New Year's resolutions was to simplify my life, and part of that was working with a capsule wardrobe. I swore I'd never do it, but , it has actually been pretty fun, and it has simplified getting dressed in the morning. My capsule is quite big at 50 pieces, but that's only about a sixth of my wardrobe (I have a large wardrobe and I tend to keep things a long time.)

My style moniker is Urban Luxe. I like sumptuous textures, clean architectural lines, and contrast of textures and styles. Lately I have been going more monochrome but adding a little edge to my style. I've also been incorporating some vintage jewelry.

The following looks are what I've been wearing lately. I like them, but they still don't feel quite right to me. Something seems missing. I think maybe I need to amp up the texture - now that we are in deep winter here in Toronto, I haven't been wearing my leather jackets as much, and I really like the edge and texture they give. These outfits seem a bit boring to my eye.

All comments and constructive criticism appreciated. Bonus: some shots of new vintage jewelry finds and the family and I in our backyard rink
