I was first turned on to Michelle Ross by my sister. She gave me one of her designs as a birthday present this year and I was an immediate fan.
Michelle lives and works in Toronto, Canada. Using semi-precious stones and metals, she pairs her designs with everything from ceramics and glass to vintage findings. The result are pieces that are equal parts feminine and strong. They carry an undeniable weight that has an old world quality yet in the same breath feels fresh and modern. Each piece has the transformative ability to paired with almost anything in your closet, accessorizing a formal outfit or my favorite, juxtaposing your favorite white t-shirt.
Check out some of my favorites below from her most recent and past collections. Her imagery and how she styles each collection is just fantastic. I personally love the editoral.
Make sure to hop over to her site to see more designs or her e-com to get your shop on. Enjoy!

A little Saturday night makeup inspiration for us. This editorial in CR Fashion Book from June 30th really caught my eye, pun intended. I love a good black and white photograph but the contrast and styling in these images really makes them pop. They’re part glamorous, part badass. Now. Let’s. Dance.
CR Fashion Books editorial, Great Lash – Inspired by the rebellious beauty Edie Sedgwick.

Lindsey Wixson is at the forefront of ManiaMania’s Fall Winter 2014 Look book and I’m in love. Channeling Stevie Nicks, nothing can come between me and Wixson’s lower lip. My favorite decade coupled with one of my favorite models adorned in a gorgeous ManiaMania precious stones and metals. The collection “Immortalia”, hand made in New York City, is inspired by witchcraft and Wixon’s bewitching outer-wordly looks were her casting characteristics. I mean really, the 70’s and witchcraft, what could be better?!

Vogue Japan does these really awesome fashion stories. That’s about all that I can tell you since I don’t read Japanese but I just love how colorful and weird they are. This one, Pop Stars, is especially great. Original via Vogue Japan

Martin Mulder’s story for the September issue of Lucky is cool, calm and statuesque. Each scene walks the line between real life and fiction. The use of horizontal and angular lines in the architecture, skylines and shadows makes us wonder if we are looking at a photograph or painting. Adding the pop of color to a select few, playing off the skyline in the others, adds a modern graphic feel. This editorial is a nice break from the over-styled norm making for a fresh, youthful and modern feel that plays off Fall’s prints perfectly.
