Sweater Shred

Here's a sample of some of my shredding work-- this time on sweater. I'd also like to introduce you to a bright new Yellow Elephant model, Jessica Brookhouser, the creative mind behind Ellie Ghost. The barrette she is wearing is one of her creations! PS take a look at the back of the top in the glass reflection. Looks like a skull, no?

Yes, I love Scandal. I am a Netflix watcher and recently finished season 3. So good! I rushed to finish the last few episodes so I can get back on Hell on Wheels.

I can totally understand why Kerry Washington won a national art award from Obama last year. Past mid season I was questioning the character development. Yea, yea. I get that during campaigning and extraneous ensuing dramas, tensions can run high. But the constant screaming match of every character during every interaction was starting to rub me wrong. By the end, they did a good job of bringing it together. Still a fan!

Not that uber chic professional wear is my bag, I do have an office job, appreciate fine fabrics, drapes and silhouettes. I might be fairly tempted by the soon to be released Scandal x The Limited collection if they have one of the wool coats with capelet shoulders I saw Olivia and Abbey wearing.

Party Meow Bag

Before we set out on the adventure of new product shots with new styling, models and photographers, I'm going to rehash the last remaining shots from my last shoot in the platform room.

New Shoot at PACA

Today was an excellent one! Collaborating with local artists is such a blast and always filled with such potential to grow. I am lucky enough to be surrounded with so much local talent it just blows my mind! Marya Hofman, Jessica Brookhouser, Emily Freimuth and Rick Frantz got together to do an amazing photoshoot at PACA today. Here are some sneak peek shots of the location to whet your whistle for some new product shots.

Pop flash

Forget about complicated details and intricacies. Lately, I've been all about the fast, bright and impactful. Save the subtleties for humor, leave your complications at home and fight the power with your creations.

Crybaby Jacket

In homage to cult legend director John Waters, rep your love for underground films in the Crybaby jacket. I appreciate John Waters so much more now that I am currently reading his book. Car Sick is a trip. Plus, this was way before Johnny Depp became whack. The back patch is machine sewn for durability on a 1970s superdenim jacket with snap closures.

Soldiers and Sailors Home

One perk of my day job is going to fun places with kids. I never knew the Soldiers and Sailors home, right off the bayfront, even existed. Not to mention, that morning was just misty and magical. Here are some photos I captured of this hidden gem.

Pointe Foure knows how to put on an event, I am looking forward to this and excited to be a part. I hope to see you there!

Veg Head Shirt

This western style denim shirt is crafted for those clean living, cruelty free babes (or bros) out there. The collar point is patched with an authentic girl scout badge. The back is patched with a hand cut and hand sewn skull design and hand lettered banners on fabric with an incredible beet & carrot pattern.
