style crush: jane sews

There’s nothing more exciting when you come across a designer that makes every piece like it was meant for you. This is how I feel about Jane Sews. Locally designed and crafted, all her dresses, tops, shoes and bags are timeless, simple and sophisticated. Perfect, really. Amy Venter, the designer behind Jane Sews, has this to say about her brand…

“I have always been inspired by nature’s authenticity. My design and making hope to reflect this same spirit; every design element is carefully considered and close attention is paid to fine construction and finish. With Jane Sews I sought out to create uplifted staples and timeless pieces that are suitable for all seasons. The small run collections are crafted from high quality natural fabrics and are both functional and easy to wear. Linking arms with other local makers has enabled Jane Sews to be part of building into community. It has also allowed me the privilege of sharing this creative journey with other tradesmen while ensuring the integrity of the finished product. This is a story sewn by honest hands speaking to a simpler way of living. My greatest wish would be that your Jane Sews piece finds a treasured place in your wardrobe.”

My greatest wish is that I could have every single piece 🙂

sticky fudge is pretty rad

We’ve got it pretty good these days when it comes to options for dressing the littles. Although I dream of being able to shop all those amazing European and US brands, it’s really not worth the money after exchange rates and shipping costs – especially when said littles grow so quickly. Seriously, this winter I’ve had to buy Bailey almost a whole new wardrobe?! Thankfully, we have great brands right here on our doorstep, like Sticky Fudge. Locally designed and made from 100% cotton, they get it so right. No garish super heroes and primary colours! Read more about them here.

I created my dream Sticky Fudge outfits for Bailey and Robert… what do you think?
