Clearly YYZ and I have been preoccupied of late. YYZ has been very busy creating loveliness as she has always done, but now she’s sharing it with the world over at her other blog.
I have also been preoccupied as I started a fantastic new woolly (and cotton too) adventure at WOOL AND THE GANG. I don’t think I have ever mentioned where I worked before on this blog but given the relevance of my new gig, I thought it made sense.
Today’s post is all about WOOL AND THE GANG. We recently launched this cool collaboration with knitters in Britain. They’re all cool, hip, stylish and amazing knitters. Our designers designed the bags and the knitters made and customised them in colours of their choice. Of course I bought one (and in case you are wondering, it was at full price), here is the one I bought. I LOVE IT!
But first, here is a shot of the personalised packaging. Nice touch eh?
As you can see below my maker was Hannah from Britain. You can browse the whole collection as I noticed that Hannah’s clutch is sold out. I personally also love Emma’s Hold Tight Clutch which is not sold out.
Another super cool thing about this bag is the yarn. WOOL AND THE GANG calls it Jersey Be Good yarn and it is made from the off-cuts of fabric in traditional fashion production. Think the bits that usually fall on your sewing room floor that are destined for the rubbish. Not these, they were collected and cut in to strips and tied together to make this yarn. So, one for the environment and looking good. YAY!
Now here’s a few outfits with my clutch. It’s been hot, so loads of shorts were worn.
What I wore above:
T-shirt – Tiger Tee, better shown here. Tee by Traffic People
Shorts – Mango
Shoes - Michael Kors Ava Sandals bought with YYZ and Lisa Macri in NYC. (see photo below as they are cut off here)
Handbag – Hold Tight Clutch by Wool and the Gang
And, now for the second time I took my clutch.
What I wore above:
Shorts – Levi’s jean shorts from my youth – circa 1984
Shoes – Silver Office Oxfords – they are looking very loved these days
Socks – white nylon stripey sockettes from Wolford bought on Vente-Privee
Top – Grey and White little number worn 4 years ago here (wow, my shoes and jeans look dated… it was 4 years ago)
Necklace – White Vintage Number bought in NYC this year with YYZ at a market in Hell’s Kitchen
