Welcome! I’m Catherine. For me, it's important to stretch my mind, travel far, and always have a stash of dark chocolate.


_DSC1753-4_2 My style is constantly evolving. When I graduated college, my first job had a limited dress code of black and white with colored accessories. Eventually the color options in my closet shrunk and once I left that job, I went color crazy and purchased a rainbow...in shirts. ;-)

I feel a little bit in-between with my style. I enjoy color, but color isn't as versatile when working with a smaller, more curated wardrobe. Currently, I'm gravitating towards pieces that are in the navy, gray, white, and denim palate. I find this turn of events ironic considering the South is more color friendly while the color palate in Chicago is pretty neutral heavy.

Our apartment is small and the closet Jordan and I share not only holds our clothes and shoes but linens, board games and toiletries! I am more aware of how many pieces of clothing I own now that our closet space has shrunk (our previous apartment was rather spacious).

While in Toronto, we stopped into Bungalow boutique and immediately I bypassed the spring colored tops and went straight towards this gray sweater. The color is neutral but the open weave back keeps it interesting and special. It's exactly the type of piece I can wear for many different occasions and with different bottoms.



I bought these Nudie jeans last fall and while I liked them, I wished the cut was skinnier. They were also too long so they had to be cuffed, which limited the shoes I could wear with them. Enter a tailor.

A few months ago, Jordan had a couple of pairs of jeans that needed mending and alterations. He set about finding a great tailor in town. He took his clothes to Nicholson Cleaners in Midtown and they came back better than ever, so I decided to take in my Nudies for an alteration.

The tailor took my pants in from the knee down and hemmed them a little shorter. I couldn't be more pleased!  Do you regularly tailor your clothes?
