Welcome to Jasper and Jacquard!  This is the next phase my journey.  My first blog Style, Spreads and Strength was my first step in this journey.  I used that blog to share my thoughts and love of fashion. I hope to use this space to define and refine my personal style.  And along the way, I hope that I can help you do the same.

I believe that personal style is an expression of who we are; and how things and people around us influence our lives.  Personal style can reflect one's likes, dislikes and experiences.   I plan to explore my personal style through the use of the following:

  1. Dress
  2. Accessories
  3. Home decor
  4. Entertaining
I plan to post 3 times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.  Once a week, I will include a post devoted to personal style and how to create and refine your signature style.   I hope that you will join me in this journey.  

The name Jasper and Jacquard comes from my love of fashion, specifically accessories and clothing.  Jasper is a play on my current obsession with gemstones.  Jasper comes in many colors including green, red, brown, yellow and blue.  The green variety of jasper reminds me of jade, my latest obsession.  Jasper can be used as a gemstone or polished forming a vase, seal, or snuff box.  I also use term jasper as a play on my love for Wedgwood which is most famously known for its jasperware, a type of stoneware.  Wedgwood is a British ceramics company known for its production of pottery with a matte finish, "jasper ware," found in a variety of colors.  The most recognized jasperware is Wedgwood blue.  Jacquard is a type of fabric or textile with a complex pattern.  The materials, colors and patterns used to make jacquard are so lovely and unexpected in their combination.  They add depth and dimension to the fabric, article of clothing and overall outfit of the wearer.

Welcome to my playground.  I hope that you see something that you like and come back often.
