i met up with the beautiful lara again recently. she modeled for us over the course of a year or two and had a brief cameo in the little short that was made about me back in 2012. of course i asked her to model for me. one of the pieces we shot is a last minute addition to the winter collection, a simple pintuck blouse in tomato plaid. i actually made this blouse for the children's collection a few years ago and meant to bring it out in a women's version eventually. voila. it has contrast black plaid trim, a nice touch. i live in tops like this fyi. soft, comfortable .. sort of boxy but great under a knit vest or sweater. i have been pretty much living in the new knit vests lately. i pair them with modaspia silk or cotton pintucks, occasionally adding a silk scarf underneath for added warmth. all this with jeans and black lace up boots. we've had a lot of rain, there is mud everywhere. it's glorious, i don't mind a bit.
if you'd like to preorder one of the pintucks drop me a line. the fabric is a washed organic cotton / hemp blend. cost $110. the shop will most definitely open with the new winter gear this week .. stay tuned.
