Fashion New and Noteworthy This Week

New and Noteworthy4

Happy December! We hope you’re enjoying a cozy morning curled up with hot (chocolate , coffee, tea), getting up to date on what’s new and noteworthy in fashion.  We tend to skip the obvious (i.e. Wang + Balenciaga) and share the bit more obscure.

Have a wonderful Sunday!
