Pawel and I had a booth at the Toronto Yoga Conference and Show last weekend and had a great experience. I will write more about that in an upcoming post.
We had the pleasure of meeting many interesting clients, as well as our booth neighbours, and it was a pleasure to chat with them about their products. Since we love to support local artists, designers, and enterpreneurs, in general, I must tell you about one of our booth neighbours. Kristi is the ingenius designer and chief fashionpreneur of Encircled, an eco-friendly, Canadian-designed and -made line of travel-inspired versatile clothing pieces that can be worn many different ways.
I was immediately impressed by her collection and am thrilled to now be the owner of a gorgeous Chrysalis Cardi in Raspberry.
There are so many fabulous ideas for how to wear this piece — as a one-shoulder dress, a Grecian dress, an infinity scarf (three possibilities), a cape, or a cardigan in a few variations. I love good-quality pieces that can be transformed from one look to a completely different one in just under a minute.
I have been enjoying experimenting with the many possibilities, and here is one of them:
I put on the cardi on my way to teach a class, and of course, I had to get Pawel to take a picture before heading out the door. The feel of the fabric is fantastic! I love the luxurious softness! I’m also looking forward to wearing the dress in the summer months on the patio.
Drape it differently, flip, twist, and I ended up with a couple of snaps at the front, which allowed me to close the cardigan in the front:
Keep an eye out for Encircled! I have a feeling you will be seeing and hearing more about it in the near future.
