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!

Sweater Dressing

Sweater Dressing

Sweater Dressing.
As we step into early fall, what makes most wardrobe sense is creative layering. Because even though the calendar indicates we have experienced the fall equinox, the temperatures bounce around from hot to chilly and back again. Unique layering pieces that become new staples are important to add to your wardrobe this season. A cardigan can be thrown on or off, long fingerless gloves keep your arms warm but allow your shoulders to be bare. A caplet warms up those cold shoulders, and scarves in neutral and colorful tones become great go-to layering accessories to keep the chill away.

Mini, maxi, and ladylike knee length reincarnated cashmere dresses are key starting pieces to layering through the months ahead. Close to the body and figure flattering, they provide a pulled together starting point for creative layering. Cardigans this season grow longer, mimicking the silhouettes of the the dresses, or fall long and straight to be worn over a skinny mini v-neck dress seen below.

 

 

The waistline is prominently featured this season, so its a good thing workout time has been invested in core work! (I’m not sure who really likes navasana but now its paying off.) Belts are back and are part of our new offerings in recycled leather and other materials for fall. The wide appliqué leather belt shown above is a bold accent to the simple fit and flare dress and cardigan and is made of vintage leather.

A capelet is an interesting accessory. Feminine and reminiscent of times long past, its a new way to warm up those cold shoulders. Wear it over a dress or one of the fit and flare cardigans to change up the silhouette. With the addition of the long fingerless gloves, the off shoulder skinny dress makes a seamless transition from daytime dressing to the coolness of the evening.

 

 

For evening, a plum toned mermaid silhouette sweater dress is an unexpected winter look. Accenting the neck and featuring the shoulders, the scarf is worn snugly around the neck with the tails behind, turning it into a kind of cold weather choker.

 


Appliqué embellished reincarnated cashmere sweaters became something integral to my eco conscious brand back in 2004. Many incarnations of sweaters have happened since then, with many artistic and cultural influences. Pop art culture has been an inspiration for several seasons. Some of my favorite current themes featured here are butterflies, flowers, and eyes. The appliqués always have some kind of meaning to me in addition to them being popular or interesting symbols. Butterflies are a symbol of change, joy, and color. Flowers of all types make me happy. A little flirtation can begin with a wink-and its always good to keep your eyes open.

The beautiful young girl Allaunah came along with her tall, exotic aunt Jazz for our photoshoot. She fit nicely into my XS sizes and willingly became a model for our shoot. She’s also a budding actress with a fun spirit and is an inspiration for our new junior and children’s cashmere sweater line, currently in the works.

 

As you may already know, everything is available on the shop pages. Colors are customizable, everything is bespoke, just the way you like it. Yes, you can pretty much have whatever you want. And thats a good thing. Just contact me with your desires.

Many thanks to the creative and talented photoshoot team: Models Jazz Monee and Allaunah, Photographer Avis Wrentmore, and makeup and hair artist Karen Bates-Ashley.
