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.

L Word

As we speak, I am watching the series finale of the L Word. I loved the show from beginning to end! They did such a good job balancing the multiple main character roles, character development and actor cameo roles. I loved the wardrobe on the show as well. The style was incredible and I loved how the show sourced unique hand altered and customized statement pieces and vintage. It might've been season 3 or 4 in the Planet where Shane was wearing this denim top with a big back piece of a button mosaic in the shape of a military medal. So much personality in the clothing in this show!

Foodie Tuesday FGC

I love A Beautiful Mess and am always inspired by their business, spirit and style. This Fancy Grilled Cheese with Fig and Almond Butter was the first recipe I think I made from their website and it was incredible! I always feel that figs make anything exponentially improved.

Watermelon Crawl shorts

These shorts were an experiment of monumental success. My first attempt at dying. Restyled cutoffs, ombre dyed and painted to make you look like the juicy fruit that you are or just celebrate summer with a little novelty.

Aqua Amor Jacket

This one of a kind piece is made with a lot of love.It started with a vintage dolphin print back patch and a custom anchor print collar on this great 90s crop denim jacket. Add some hand made pockets  to the restyle with a rad shark design (with a surprise sailor print inside) and handmade anchor and bitching embroidered mermaid patch-- you got summer ocean love for days!
