Why I LOVE Strathberry

Strathberry is a luxury leather goods brand, created by a husband and wife team and based in Scotland. The handbags are works of art, with minimalist modern design. Each bag is carefully constructed by hand and takes about 20 hours to make. The work happens in Spain with dedicated craftsmen and only the finest Spanish leather. The timeless design, the high-quality leather, and the superb attention to detail make a Strathberry bag a heritage piece that that you’ll have forever.

Why I LOVE The Lana Midi Bucket Tote

The Lana Midi Tote is perfect size for carrying all of my everyday necessities.  The interior space is roomy, with a soft microfibre lining,  zipped side pocket, and a magnetic fastening at the top. The look of the bag is just yummy, with an unusual mix of smooth and pebbled calf leather to add such rich texture.  The stitching on a Strathberry bag is always impeccable. The strap can be adjusted to fit as a shoulder bag or a crossbody bag.  I love the colorblock choice here, tan and vanilla for neutrals, and a pop of unexpected mustard yellow! This gorgeous tote is also available in other colors, like navy, tan, tan with green, and black and vanilla.

Wardrobe Building 101

February 9, 2022

Today I’m excited to share a post about building a wardrobe, the simple basics … Wardrobe Building 101!

This is an outfit created by following all my own suggestions: neutral colors in personally flattering silhouettes, with a pop of my favorite accent color.

I’ve done a series of blog posts about wardrobe building, so if you’re a regular around here, some of this will be familiar to you.  But I thought it would be a cool idea to distill all that information into one handy easy-to-work-with blog post. I’ve also added a few new thoughts and ideas, as well as updating the photos of course.

Ladies, the more mature and thoughtful I get, the more I want to spend my money on pieces that are the highest quality and will stand the test of time, pieces like you’ll find at Verlas.

It is even a Dawn Lucy vacation if I don’t snap some street style pics?  Seriously, this alone could be an all consuming hobby for me!  I love seeing what women are wearing and how they’re putting it all together.  My post on Amsterdam Street Style from last summer was a big hit, so I definitely wanted to share some Montreal street style this summer!
