Hydrangeas in Nantucket Posted on 7 Aug 12:31 , 3 comments

Visiting Nantucket has made me realize (again) that I want a backyard filled with hydrangeas, hostas and lavender . I stayed at the White Elephant, a lovely hotel on the outskirts of the town of Nantucket, overlooking a harbor filled with boats and yachts. Walking around town was a pleasant early morning activity before the summer temperatures drove me out to the beach. Window boxes filled with blossoms and pretty grasses graced many of the homes. The weathered grey shingled houses combined with the pretty flower displays are unmistakably Nantucket...

Finding Ethically Produced, Affordable Clothing Posted on 17 Jun 12:28 , 2 comments

It's no secret that many apparel companies use underpaid and often exploit workers to produce the clothing they sell. If this is no secret, why do people continue supporting brands and companies that use unethical labor practices to increase their profits? While some people shop fast fashion without understanding the full consequences of their choices  the majority of customers are simply shopping within their budgets. Studies have shown that people want to invest in ethical fashion, but rarely do because there are not enough options within their price range. In this article, I will discuss three ways in which you can source ethically produced clothing at very affordable

I work at home a lot, often opting for a sweater and jeans while sketching, sewing, and draping. By the time I head out to run errands, go shopping for supplies, or meet up with friends, I am ready to dress up a little more.

Peonies on White Carrara Marble Posted on 14 May 09:29 , 0 comments

I'm excited to introduce the'Peonies on White Carrara Marble' silk scarf. Made in Italy, the printed silk twill scarf is finished with a hand-rolled hem. At 35.5 inches square, the scarf is large enough to wear in a variety of ways, while the light 12mm silk twill is delicate enough to fold into a head band or tie onto your handbag to complete your outfit.
The silk twill peony scarf was designed with variations of pink peonies that I photographed, delicately arranged over white carrara marble. The scarf is finished with a soft pink

How to Fix Your Grey Facebook Account Posted on 8 May 06:00 , 0 comments

How do you fix a 'Grey' Facebook account? That's the question that I was trying to solve for several days after discovering I was unable to share my Instagram Insights with a company I wanted to work with. I had no clue what a grey account was before I embarked on the rather painstaking journey of figuring out what was wrong. After spending days combing through my Facebook settings, I finally found out that once you have a grey account, you are totally doomed and need to start your facebook page over from scratch. Just kidding- there's a way to fix it. Here is what worked for me:

Introducing the Wynwood Dress Posted on 29 Apr 11:23 , 6 comments

The Kate Stoltz Wynwood Dress is an asymmetrical piece with waist cutouts. Made with Italian superfine 120's merino wool and delicate French snakeskin lace, the black dress is light enough to wear in the spring, summer evenings and early fall. The dress design was inspired by the chaotic beauty of the Wynwood Walls murals in Wynwood, Florida.

Walking Around The Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens Posted on 23 Apr 15:40 , 0 comments

I spent my Easter weekend in Boca Raton, Florida, where I lived for a year before moving to New York City. During my stay, I visited The Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens - located in Delray Beach close to Boca Raton. The walk around the pond is a relaxing stroll a little less than a mile. Along the path are benches, koi ponds and tropical flowering plants. The serene, expansive Japanese gardens are the perfect place to catch up with a friend or simply enjoy nature. If you're wondering where to go in Boca Raton or Delray Beach

A Peek into a Typical Winter Day for Kate Stoltz Posted on 5 Mar 06:00 , 13 comments

 A light winter snowstorm has once again transformed the outdoors into a glittering, shimmering wonderland. I took a walk this morning before the snow and ice melted from the trees and the outdoors returned to brown and grey again. My dog, Victoria, joined me on the excursion. It was too cold for her to walk on the snow for long, but we both enjoyed the fresh air. 

Girl's Life Interview with Vara Gianna Posted on 20 Feb 06:00 , 0 comments

Excerpt from Girl's Life Style by Vara Gianna, a YouTuber and blogger about fashion: Friday, February 9 (Kate Stoltz Interview): In addition to keeping my makeup simple for Kate Stoltz, I went simple with my outfit, too, and opted for a cool jacket and heels. I chose an embellished, mustard bomber and black off-the-shoulder long sleeve sweater (both from Forever 21), along with Levi’s light-wash mom jeans, and black suede pearl Mary Jane heels from Urban Outfitters. Kate’s collection was undeniably stunning, eye-catching and a necessity for any woman who wants to look respectable yet attractive.
