Romper Pattern Now Available!

Hello friends!

I know, long time no see, but I do have something exciting to share with you! We’ve officially created our first Clarisse’s Closet sewing pattern, which is now published and available to download on Pixie Faire! We chose the romper design used in our summer and fall collections last year as our first pattern, and think it’s a fun style to sew, with sleeve and trim options that give you a chance to be creative with the finished look. If you make one be sure to share a photo!

Check out the pattern here!

I just got these cozy new boots for Christmas, so bring on the cold and snow!

Macie in Grey

Macie was trying out one of our most popular custom hat choices (grey bowler with blush trim) as well as this adorable new dress I picked up from Closet4Chloe, and I thought she looked so stylish I had to give her her own post. Macie really pulls off the girly-meets-edgy look, wouldn’t you say? I love the mix of the delicate lace on the dress with a studded leather purse.

I’ll only be taking a few more hat orders before Christmas, so be sure to get yours in soon if you want it in time for the holidays!

What Macie is Wearing:
Dress: Closet4Chloe 
Hat: Clarisse’s Closet
Purse: DesignsbyOrvie
Scarf: InMarigoldsAttic
Tights: AG Brand
Shoes: Addy’s Classic Meet

A (Slightly) Spooky Halloween

I just love a good costume party for Halloween! Last year’s photo-booth party was a blast, so this year we invited some friends over for another costumed get-together!

I decided to make a special costume for myself this year- a mermaid!

Pippa… trying to be scary, but everyone knows she’s the biggest scaredy-cat at the party!

Camille always likes to be something silly, so we were crafty and made her cupcake!

Theo headed right for the candy and punch…

Then he wanted to see who he could scare, so we turned all the lights off and huddled in around his flashlight to hear a spooky story.

Some of us were not too easily scared…

But some of us were!

But we all had a great time! Happy Halloween!

When in Doubt, Layer

Clarisse's Closet   Clarisse's Closet Clarisse's ClosetClarisse's ClosetClarisse's Closet

It occurred to me that my flannel shirt selection is quite lacking, which is a shame considering flannels are a fall necessity. This classic AG flannel is in almost everyone’s wardrobe, though I must say it is more often seen borrowed by my brother than it is worn by me, so I’m adding more fitted flannels to my shopping list. Thankfully, there is always the option of layering to disguise clothing that isn’t your favorite fit- so this sparkly maroon sweater was just what I needed to complete the outfit.

What I’m Wearing:
Flannel: AG Cargo Outfit 
Sweater: Clarisse Original
Jeans: Clarisse’s Closet Fall 2015 Collection
Boots: AG Addy’s Original Meet Boots

A is for Autumn Accessories (and Apples)

IMG_3859IMG_3848IMG_3873IMG_3863IMG_3850

Today’s look was built around the quintessential fall accessories- a denim jacket, cloche hat, something flannel, and a pair of boots. While a trip to the apple orchard wasn’t in the plans for the day, this is exactly the kind of outfit I’d wear to go apple picking, and wearing it makes me want to go! I’m not sure which is my favorite part of apple picking- actually picking the apples or eating the delicious desserts that Pippa makes with them afterwards… we will have to plan a trip to our local orchard soon!

What I’m Wearing:
Jacket: AG Coconut’s Best Friend
Top: SparrowandWren (JanieJumps)
Pants: AG Horse Lover 
Boots: AG Blue Ribbon Riding
Scarf: LaPoupeeBijoux
Hat: Clarisse Original

September’s Swan Song

So long September, tomorrow’s October! If you haven’t already unpacked your flannels, sweaters, and boots, now is the time. Well, at least for us here in the Northern U.S. and everywhere else that is blessed with fabulous cool weather and the smell of autumn leaves during this time of year. I hadn’t made a new “Clarisse Original” for myself in a while, and I’m not sure what inspired me to go with a swan for the sweater, but thank you to whatever it was because I’m pretty in love with it.

What I’m Wearing:
Sweater and Collar: Clarisse Originals
Skirt: @agmarket on Instagram
Boots: AG Saige’s Meet
