I just absolutely love my dress ! My mother was married 50 years ago and the dress was 50$ when she bought it and we didn’t know if anything could be done with it . I really wanted to wear her dress because my parents marriage has been an inspiration to me my entire life and I love them so much ! When I saw the final design I cried its like something I dreamed because I never thought I would wear something like this but Its as if it was always going to be my dress . Deborah was so easy to work with and I knew from the start I could trust her judgment . I glad I did !

Deborah did an amazing job! My seamstress was unavailable due to busy season, and Deborah saved the day! She was very responsive, great to work with, and had my dress done in a short amount of time. She went above and beyond what I was expecting. Besides saving the beading when she hemmed the front of my dress, she appliqued the extra details back onto the front. It looks even better than what I was expecting. I'm so happy with how my dress turned out, and in the turnaround time. I'd HIGHLY recommend her to anyone in need of alterations. She's wonderful :]

Omg! Deborah is amazing!! I had a really beautiful Vera Want dress, but it wasn't corseted in the back (it had just a zipper and fake buttons) and the neckline was straight and I just always dreamed of a sweetheart! She did an AMAZING JOB for such a good price, like half what David's bridal would charge. Honestly I don't think David's bridal could have come NEAR what Deborah did for me. I'm obsessed with it. I feel like a Helena Bonham Carter fairy bride in my dress. I could not be happier or more in love!

For The Love Of Bees

For The Love Of Bees

This morning on my way to my yoga class, I spotted an extermination truck with the tagline “Kills Everything”.
Imagine a world without birds, butterflies, bees, ladybugs, and the beautiful and magical garden creatures that make a garden a sanctuary. But yet this is an idea that is presented as an excellent business slogan… If a pesticide is used to get rid of one kind of weed or “pest”, that poison creates a hostile environment to the creatures that do good things for our gardens. Just as the slogan says, it “Kills Everything”.

No pesticide for me, eco designer/gardener girl. I make friends with these creatures, and sometimes they feel so comfortable they just come in the house to check it out. But that’s another story.

Bees, for example. I’ve been watching them in my own garden, buzzing around my succulent blossoms, busily doing their work. How important are they to our survival? According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, these workers pollinate 80 percent of our flowering crops, not only allowing us to have bouquets of fragrant blossoms, but also constituting 1/3 of everything we eat. Not to mention the honey they produce and bee venom which can be treated to treat illnesses.

My friend Monica Miller of Skye Botanicals recently threw a design opportunity my way. Monica is a Master Herbalist, Perfumer, and Beekeeper dedicated to World Peace through the active sharing of resources, education and the restoration of nature. (I was part of a group of fragrance testers for a new patchouli fragrance she was creating a couple of years ago and was happy to co-create with her again.) Her project for me was a high-fashion beekeepers costume.

I suggested we start with the bee bonnet, but design it like a wide brimmed hat with a long veil extending to the ground. Beyond that, I imagined a cartoonlike beehive resembling spun honey.
Challenging in a way, since I had to teach myself millinery, which then led into my exploration of bridal headpieces and facinators, now on my website.

I created a wide brimmed buckram hat, wrapped it in sparkly gold flecked tulle, sprinkled flower blossoms and bees on the top, and attached a long veil. I made a little yellow sequin bikini for our model, and my talented photographer friend Chika Okazumi signed on to create some images along with hairdresser Terah Tidy of Glamifornia. Together we orchestrated what I’m calling the Magical Bee Bonnet Shoot.

And magical it was. 18 mph hot Santa Anna winds created a styling headache for me but truly added drama to the images.

I love co-creating projects and am always happy to help preserve our Mother Earth any way I can.
