Kat Wornette

Hi there! I’m Kat, and I’m a recent immigrant to Canada from the wilds of Seattle, Washington. Pretty much anything fascinates me, which is both a blessing and a curse. My clothing choices could be described as “all over the place”, and I love to make things – from beaded collars to appliqued sweaters to shrinky-dink pendants. When I’m not at the WORN offices, chances are I’m drooling over photos of flapper dresses and Louis Sullivan buildings.

Vintage Textile
So what if I’ll never be able to afford anything they sell? This store is nothing but pretty, pretty eye candy. If you’re ever in need of a C.F. Worth ball gown or Gallenga coat and have a few thousand dollars burning a hole in your pocket, this is the place to look.

Holly Fulton
No question, Holly Fulton is one of my favorite designers. Her bright colors and stylized Art Deco skyscraper motifs are a little bit mod, a little bit Metropolis.

HonestlyWTF
HonestlyWTF has some of the best DIY tutorials, inspired by everything from high fashion to Danish music videos.

Wandering in Tacoma
Okay, this one has nothing to do with fashion, but Stephen Cysewski’s photos of my hometown in the 1970s are so inspiring! They perfectly capture Tacoma’s grungy, gritty beauty. I visit this page whenever I’m homesick, or just need to feel a little bit more melancholy.
