a little weekend sneak peak? yes of course. soon the last pieces of 2019 will be in the shop along with some things for home or as gifts .. more on those later because they deserve a bit more. above, the trumpet sleeve silk-cotton blouse i will be making to order paired with a black skirt from a few seasons ago. i thought they were so pretty together, the chartreuse print against the stark black, both with a subtle sheen. i have one black skirt left and it will be on sale.
1 small and 1 x-small black silk flutter sleeve dress will be on sale.
more black ! velvet top w/bow and black wool voile button down shirt ..
last velvet blouse w/bow in honey paired with the cocoa eyelet skirt from a few seasons back. i have a few of the skirts left and they will be on sale too! i really loved this skirt, with it's copper silk lining.
i will give a preview later of the other pieces .. a turkish red / grey valentina dress and flutter sleeve dress .. a navy ribbed silk version. a deep red velvet blouse w/bow.
if you live in the US you have surely heard about the wild fires raging in california right now. people are fleeing for their lives, wildlife devastated .. strong winds push the fire and they become almost impossible to contain. as someone who lives in a house surrounded by tall pine trees it's your worst nightmare. on top of that, a lot of these areas are without power due to the pg&e shut offs (us too). everyone i know has checked in with someone affected by the fire or the smoke from these fires. big state california but there is a strong connection between friends and family from north to the south and the help we all offer never ceases to amaze me. want to help? the american red cross is a fast and direct way to do it. you can make a donation here that will directly help those affected by the fires: REDCROSS
