Tweedy Bird Knapsack

A classic knapsack design executed in repurposed wool is a unique one of a kind accessory for when you're out of your element. Great for making a statement on the first day of school, hauling books that inform your theoretical outlook, festivals, traveling...aka anytime you want your hands free and have a little more baggage than usual. As usual, this was created from all recycled materials including the hardware, repurposed vintage fabric, tweed blazer, and corduroy pants.

Cats Rule Everything Around Me Jacket

Who wouldn't want a romantically airbrushed style vintage cat print getting their back? If that's you, you'll flip over this one of a kind patched denim of a cat print surrounded by a cameo created from hand dyed lace, mounted on a repurposed vintage atomic print tea towel.

Kanga Pouch Henly

Take a comfy vintage ring spun heather henley in a surprisingly modern loose, but cropped style. Add a custom kangaroo pouch to hold your hands, smartphone, whatever. Score a bold, one of a kind, comfy addition to your wardrobe! The beauty of this piece lies in the pouch created from a wool Mexican serape. We have to go a bit beyond beauty to functional design because we all know that swaddling your hands in wool is not the smooth fleecy experience you'd expect. Because I want you to love your clothes so you wear them threadbare, I made sure the pocket has a soft, black, t shirt material lining.

Alex's Jacket

I created a custom jacket for Alex. She happens to be an amazing stylist at Charisma Salon and obviously has good taste in patches ;) Thanks, Alex! Rock your style all fall.

For this, I used repurposed, found and hand painted pieces.

Last show of the summer

Fall is in full swing. Gone is the high sun, cotton fabric and barbecue. Jackets, roasted squash and leaves colored in the full spectrum of red to yellow are ushered in their place. So let's roll the new collection out!

To start, I'm going to show a few photos from my last show from Sharon's Waterfire

 I shared a booth with artist Jenna Colby

Summer Magic

I have to admit, summer does feel over and has for several weeks. It's just not as humid and coolness permeates the air. The engulfing warmth that comes from high sunshine and carefree days of playing outside are almost a memory of a beautiful season I won't see until well into next year. That being said, I am still far from accepting the fall and the food and wardrobe changes that come along with it. I do miss my biker coat, but I have plenty of time to wrap myself in the protective garb its leathery badassness. For now, I am relishing in the remaining remnants of summer's magic.
