Behind the Scenes at the Photo Shoot March 31 2015
I couldn't resist sharing just a few more photos from the shoot last Saturday, such as Caitlin laughing uncontrollably, me being silly while Chadwick was trying to get a close up shot of the dress print, and a couple other photos. Enjoy!

Thanks to Ling and Chadwick for producing this funny gif of the photo shoot. Just in case you're wondering what those funny moves are about, we were jamming to Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson. :)
Finishing Touches November 23 2014
Now that the store is almost open, I am putting the finishing touches on the clothing with these tags. Can't wait to start packaging them with pretty tissue paper and ribbon and shipping them out!
More Fun with Photos November 07 2014
Thankfully I have friends who are more photogenic than I and so I didn't need to model these clothes, but I took a few photos anyway. Here are a few outtakes from the first photo shoot in which I am wearing the Tattoo Tank Top, Reversible Striped Pants and Waist/Coat. A few notes on these items:
Tattoo Tank Top - I love tattoos. Not every single one I have ever seen, but in general I really like the artistry of many of them, the boldness of the person to permanently mark themselves, and what tattoos say about their owners. I got my first one a few years ago and would love to get more. Seeing tattoos inspired me to create this tank top, something simple with a cool embellishment.
Reversible Striped Pants - I wear many styles of clothing, but I am most comfortable in pants. A pair of long pants perfect to wear with heels or with a slight bagginess for those comfortable days, and you have described my perfect pair of pants, aka this pair. The white side makes them great for spring and summer and the black/herringbone side make them great for cooler months.
Waist/Coat - Some women wear sweatshirts, some wear sweaters, I wear blazers. They make looking chic and still being comfortable so easy. Same goes for vests, hence this vest/blazer combo. And it was actually my husband who thought of the cool brass zipper detail.
Getting Started with Some Lovely Friends November 02 2014
I’m building the collection slowly, starting first with a few pieces that can serve as wardrobe staples: a reversible dress, a pair of reversible pants, a vest that can turn into a blazer, and a shirt that can turn into a dress. And, for a little fun, a basic tank top with a wink to the classic “Mom” and heart tattoo.
To help me get this website started, several awesome friends took a few hours out of their relaxing Sundays for a fun photo shoot. One of my bestest friends, Ling, and her awesome husband, Chadwick, set up, art directed and shot the photos for the beginning of the collection. And two lovely ladies made their modeling debuts.
- Ling is a floral designer, studio manager and foodie, with a very keen eye for detail and artistry.
- Chadwick is a graphic designer and animator who has some very funny animated stories to tell.
- Whitney is a beautiful, world-traveling TV journalist and one of the smartest people I know.
- Lillian is a beautiful, marketing maven and one of the nicest people I know.
Here are a few behind-the-scenes shots of our first photo shoot.
