Leather swatches have been coming in daily now and I'm finally starting to feel like this is all very real... Currently I'm trying to find the right colors for the designs Ive been working on. I'm really into purples, light pinks, blues and of course some oranges. Then there's the croc and gator skins that are just gorgeous! I keep finding myself adding to the collection just so I can use a certain color or skin :)

What are some of your favorite colors? Do you only wear certain colors for spring or do you find yourself going for style rather than sticking to the rules?? I'd love to hear from you. Let me know what you'd like to see in the Strawberry Blonde Spring Collection... You never know, your ideas may inspire a new design!

Some of my favorites so far...

I love these colors...


  1. Hey Jamie! LOVE those croc skins! Super chic and really smart colors. I just had to click on your blog to see what it was all about because my 2.5 year old daughter has the most beautiful strawberry blonde hair (though it's "blonde strawberry" to her, LOL). How exciting that you're working on a collection!! Have a wonderful weekend and praying for lots of designing success with the line!

  2. Hey James,
    I actually love the "cool cucumber" croc, it might be really sweet with the "celery" color kid skin. Swing by the factory to match them up and see what you think.

  3. I just saw on the Bonnano blog that you are starting a shoe company! Fun! I love the teal and cumcuber croc, the dark green is more Fall to me. I am one to stay with dark colors for Fall and Winter and brights for Spring and Summer.

  4. Congratulations on this new journey! Excited to see what you create!!

  5. Hey Jamie! How exciting for you! I am LOVING the teal gator skin...ooooh it's my fave! I think you will do great in this have such an eye for this sort of thing. Good luck to you and keep me posted!!


  6. The cool cucumber is great. In the winter I wear more tans and blacks but make up for it in the spring/summer with all the fun bright colors I can find. My favs are bright pink, pale yellows and fun greens.
