Here’s one trend we’ve been seeing more and more of recently, particularly in the world of accessories: Tapestry. You might also call it needlepoint, and it overlaps with other closely related terms including cross-stitch and jacquard. The feeling it evokes is very sweet and grandmotherly, which is why I especially appreciate the irony created by those bad-ass Jeffrey Campbell kitty-cat platform boots.
