My favorite thing about this time of year is watching the quality of the light change, when the harsh rays of summer give way to the indirect yellow-orange light of autumn. But my second favorite thing about fall is trading the white linen pants and bejeweled flip flops for knee-high tube socks, boots, tweeds, hoodies and woolens. Yeah! I love fall fashion! And of course, at artduh.com, we wanted to bring you our favorite handmade (and some vintage) picks to wear this season. Since you pretty much have to spend money on your fall wardrobe, you might as well wear a work of art, right? Right! Here we go, our favs:

This is one of our favorite local shops, owned by our friends Lindsay and Bob Frendt. They carry my FAVORITE thing for fall: skirts by Cory Bushman. Cory hand embroiders skirts with great (not cheesy) quotes and images. Wear one and watch people walk circles around you to read the quotes. This shop also has cute embellished hats by Jenn Davis and a must-have for fall, huge cocktail rings. The bigger the ring, the better. SL Citizen also carries lots of stuff by one of our favorite local designers, Jordan Halversen. And of course, every little girl (or silly grown man) needs a Grimmleigh’s headband. Put a monster flower in your hair!
Next up we have fun fashions by the Craft Sabbath artists. Craft Sabbath is a monthly event held at the Main Downtown Library between 1 and 5 p.m. The next event will be on September 12. These artists include Sonya Evans from The Full Spectrum, Kali Mellus of bykali and Suzanne Clements of Sorry Clementine (the black and pink hoodie is mine, I call it!!!). These ladies also sell on Etsy, so check them out there.

We couldn’t do justice to the SLC fashion scene without including one of my favorite designers, Jordan Halversen. He sells locally at two fun shops, the Hive at Trolley Square and Salt Lake Citizen. His one of a kind designs are so gorgeous, well-made, and unique that you will be guaranteed to be sporting the most interesting duds at any occasion. Here goes, our favorite’s of Jordan’s fall pieces.
