Overdue Fashion Week Report!

I know its  long overdue, but here is my official opinion on the Fall Fashion week.

Burberry's Fall 2013 Collection is again very pretty and lady-like indeed. In fact, much of the Fall Fashion week reflected a refined and modest charm. Check out the blog Conspired by Fashion's opinion and photo's here. I absolutely LOVE Jonathan Saunders sleek & sweet Fall fashion line. Shop the collection at Vogue and see for yourself. My favorite pick....Giles. Wow! Unique, glam, and ethereal. Peruse the photo's at Fashionising. I really like the plain long parted hair the models donned. I am happy to say there was still a very vintage touch to all the collections above.

Now if only spring would start here in Fargo, I could actually think about next Fall. For now, the thought of wearing long sleeves and a knitted cap sends me down a very angry spiral of emotions.

I have a lot of news regarding my dear little Etsy Shop. First off, I had the pleasure of working with a new model, Hailey. She did a fabulous job, and it took a lot less time photographing her, as compared with taking pictures of myself. Some the the pictures turned out really fabulous. So I'm going to post a few of them below.

1970's Fruit Salad Dress

I have added a "Bargain Bin" section to the shop, where I sell items with imperfections and clearance items. I have also added a Lingerie & Slips section. So far, it hasn't been a huge success. I haven't sold anything in 7 days, which is rather depressing considering how well my shop was doing last month. April is proving to be a dry spell, as of now. Hoping things pick up soon, pass the word around my friends!

Stay classy,
Kary J.

I am offering a coupon code for $5 off any purchase at my Etsy shop for any one who likes our Facebook Page!

Pretty soon I will be adding a 'Bargain Bin' section to our shop. It will include items with small flaws at a steep discount and clearance garments.

Happy Monday!

Color me Vintage

What a fantastic week its been! I spent some time with a couple really top notch ladies who let me pick through their vintage collections and score some very pretty pieces for my little shop on Etsy
I was drooling over their absolutely amazing Lucite handbag collection, and eye-popping Bakelite bits. Next time I have the opportunity to visit them, I will be sure to bring my camera and take a few pictures of their stunning finds.
For now however, I will post a few of the new listings I have at High Hat Couture. Keep in mind, these are only a few of the glamorous garments. There will be more listed next week, so stay tuned. I'm so happy to finally be able to offer some higher quality pieces. Its been a struggle finding inventory, but I believe with my new found knowledge it will no longer be an issue.
Okay, first up...

So there you have them. If you would like to check them out, just click on the descriptions above the photo's, they are linked to the actual listing on Etsy. Some of the pictures were slightly blurry, I'm still trying out different camera settings. The lighting has been atrocious here in Fargo. Especially for indoor shoots. I'm looking forward to taking pictures of a new model next Tuesday. I'm hoping to get some nice clear outdoorsy shots. 
As a side note, I discovered the vintage clothing designer Lilli Diamond this week. I have one of her dresses for sale in the shop, so I had to do a little research. I love her style. Do yourself a favor and google her. 

Thanks for stopping by my little corner! Take care of yourselves:)
