With lots of us experiencing what seems to be like an endless winter full of darker days, cold temperatures and lots of that white stuff on the ground, I think we can all agree that we're looking forward to spring/summer and sunnier, warmer days ahead. I like to start wardrobe shopping for this anticipated seasonal change early and before the actual new yearly quarter hits. I approach fashion like I do decorating our home, I acquire items slowly over time, and in doing so I am able to gather a more unique mixture of items, ones that I will love forever (especially if they're an investment). I often start keeping my eye out for a few key new spring wardrobe pieces around this time of year (which also means I can scoop them up before they sell out in the primetime season). Recently I came across a fairly new brand called Pamela Munson and I have to admit I am totally smitten with eeeeeverything on the site. In fact my prediction is that her brand will likely become iconic in only a matter of time-it's just that good! The brand offers handbags, hats and belts all with a signature and absolutely sublime fashion aesthetic that exudes preppy and polished looks. Among my favourite accessories are the Audrey Hat and Lady P handbag-sheer perfection!! I've included all of my top picks from the brand below but first a little about Pamela, the marvelous women behind it all....
"Pamela Munson is a straw accessories brand inspired by classic style reminiscent of a bygone era. Each piece is handwoven with signature design elements that propose a modern balance of strength and femininity. Designed in New York, we view straw as a natural, sustainable and seasonless material.
A good part of Pamela's childhood was spent cruising around Florida, the Bahamas, and Long Island's East End and she draws upon this special time with her family when creating each collection. With more than 15 years in the fashion industry at CHANEL, Oscar de la Renta, and Bergdorf Goodman, she fuses her business acumen with passion for creating straw handbags and accessories. Since launching the brand in May 2017, Pamela's designs have been carried to beautiful beaches and chic poolsides around the world."
Now for my top picks!
