Have you been looking at a particular piece longingly, thinking “Maybe one day”? Let’s make today the day you treat yourself!

Who Do You Love?

February is undeniably the month of love; even the seemingly random “national” days tell us so. These are just a few of the special February days that shout “Who do you love?”

  • February 4: National Wear Red Day
  • February 14: Valentine's Day
  • February 21: Family Day
  • February 28: National Floral Design Day

You can’t miss the message of hearts, romance, and treating the ones we love. Of course, we could all use a little extra tender loving care right now (be sure to check out the end of the newsletter for a chance to spread the love to someone else). But why not be your own Valentine this year, too?

Show yourself a little love this February—after all, many of us have put our usual special treats and indulgences on the back burner for the last couple years, so we might as well get the most enjoyment out of the special things we can have. I’d say we deserve something special after all we’ve given up, and clothes are a much better investment than chocolate!

Have you been looking at a particular piece longingly, thinking “Maybe one day”? Let’s make today the day you treat yourself!

Is it a bigger piece—this versatile quilted jacket, perhaps? Or is a cozy sweater begging you to click “add to cart” already? There’s something special about wrapping yourself up in a comfy piece like a hug, the perfect way to feel the love through a long winter. In fact, the entire Sweater Weather collection for this season was designed for maximum comfy-cozy vibes.

Or maybe you’re looking forward, just waiting for the florals of spring. Sure, you could grab a bouquet, but this classic dress will last much longer than anything in a vase. If you’re eager for those vibrant spring colours, this coral cardigan is ready to brighten your day. This bamboo top is a perfect transition piece; the rich teal is a gorgeous pop of colour for all seasons and layers beautifully—or give it a “twist” with this version, evoking the gorgeous greens that will be everywhere this spring.

If you’re feeling blah about buying anything new right now, thinking it’s too late for new winter clothes but too early for spring, maybe a sale would help! I’ve got rotating deals on my website throughout the month. You can also contact me to book a private shopping appointment at my studio. I’ve got to clear space for the next collection, so be sure to grab the piece you’ve been eyeing before it’s gone.

Still thinking about how you can spread the love to others? I promised you a way to pass along a little extra love this February, so here’s your chance: This Valentine’s Day, I want you to nominate a friend for a shopping experience worth $175! All you have to do is send me a message telling me why your friend is so deserving, and I’ll enter them for the giveaway.

I hope you feel the love this month, and don’t be afraid to treat yourself (or a friend)!

The Joys of Steady Sizing

That consistency in sizing is even more important in the age of online shopping. There’s nothing quite as frustrating as spending all that time browsing and then waiting for a piece to arrive, only for it to completely disappoint when you put it on.

Fashion Phrases: Is it the size or is it the cut?

One of the biggest complaints in fashion today, especially women’s fashion, is how inconsistent sizing can be. Though there is a call to standardize clothing sizes, something tells me it’s going to be a long time before we get there. Vanity sizing has been shifting what classifies as small, medium, or large (or size 10, 12, etc.) for decades, and those ad hoc sizes are emotionally loaded for a lot of shoppers.

Versatility is one of my top design considerations. When I am creating pieces, I want you to be able to wear them anywhere and in all seasons. Amaranth Designs clothing can be dressed up or down, which means your comfortable vacation clothes also look fantastic at the office—which makes it a little easier to pretend you’re on a sunny beach instead of at a desk next to the window, right?
