Knight Service by Teresa Gregorio

Knight Service by Teresa Gregorio

Knight Service: From designer Teresa Gregorio: Have you noticed all the beading, glitz, rhinestones, and other clothing embellishments popping up in shops lately? The trend that started on the runways has made its way to street wear. And Holla Knits was right on trend! On sale for only $2!

Back in 2012 Knight Service was published, featuring beaded shoulder embellishments, not unlike these you’ll find in stores right now at Forever 21 and Mango:

Black Swan by Tara Shade

Black Swan by Tara Shade

Black Swan: From designer Tara Shade: We’ve all been there. Some days, despite hangers of options, you feel as if there’s just nothing to wear. That’s when I love spending some quality time with my closet, getting creative, and playing a bit of dress-up. During one of these mix and match moments, I worked the Black Swan into an outfit that I loved so much, and styled it into a look you can rock this late fall and winter. Don’t have a Black Swan of your own yet? You can get the pattern for half off right here at Holla KnitsOn sale for only $2!
