Blue Jean Baby... denim cut-off remnants + gorgeous vintage fabric = 2 new pieces




You know that "Happy" song that's been stuck in your head all summer...these 2 pieces seem to be bring it back for me! 




The inspiration behind these pieces are the materials, a strikingly bold and happy print vintage fabric + classic denim. Luckily, my friend Nina decided to convert an old pair of her jeans into shorts, and gifted me her remnants. I love incorporating denim into my pieces. Denim is a classic fabric that was literally built to last, plus it functions as a perfect neutral element to compliment some of the bold prints I work with. Bring on the happy!

The Easy Piece of Summer, Swathed in Beautiful Prints!


Oh how time is flying by! I can't believe that July is almost over. I have been trying to enjoy summer here in NYC, but mostly busy in the work shop plus a 7 day stint in jury duty. I am so happy to be finally putting new pieces out there!

The first of the new things are a group of kimono-style tops. For me, inspiration starts with the fabric, and these tops are the perfect canvas for displaying beautifully printed and dyed fabric. I have been hunting and collecting some beautiful vintage fabrics, and I hope that the new pieces to come give them a new life and add to their story. This is certainly one of the most versatile trends of this summer. They are an easy way to add a pop of color or print to your basic pieces. They are also so great to travel with as they can be worn with shorts during the day, as a swimsuit cover up, and even dressed up at night.

Red, White, and Blue Love

Greetings everyone!

Wishing you all a lovely Fourth of July weekend ahead. Watching the World Cup in the past couple of weeks, has made me proud to be an American, while also globally inspired. Colorful fans from allover the world, uniting to cheer on their countries. Especially here in NYC, no matter how or where you are watching the game, it turns into quite the international scene! 

In the spirit of this patriotic time, I leave with with some red, white, and blue looks from ErinElsie and my favorite outfit for the weekend. All thoughtfully made by me in the USA! 

Continuing my love of 2 piece sets this summer in my easy breezy red, white, and blue look.
