Holiday Bespoke orders, out the door.

We are preparing to ship  this lovely Bespoke order, but thought we would give a sneak peek first.  

Our Ella jacket in the beautiful black stitch silk, with chiffon dots trim.  The perfect something to throw on over the Gertrude dress in cherry dots (remember that trim?).

Yosemite in all its colors & textures

We had to share this fun collage, featuring the unbelievable beauty of Yosemite.  

My daughter, in her vividly colored wool, skipping along, surrounded by
the sunlit Half Dome;
the Ponderosa Pine puzzle-like bark;
& the striated rock walls of Vernal Falls.  

Truly inspiring.

I'm going to hold onto all these images and
find a few tiny chic interpretations. 
Stay tuned.

Its Cyber Monday but we're still thankful!

Thanksgiving has, somehow, come and gone already.  
And today, as Cyber Monday speeds by, I'm still thinking about all for which I'm thankful.

We were lucky enough to spend some of the holiday at Yosemite National Park.  But not before we cooked & baked and toasted good friends & family.  Tiny felted owls, courtesy of my daughter, decorated the tables, while others polished the silver & still others kept close watch over 'the bird'.

I had the rather pleasant job of desserts, which always seems like a bit of an easy feat.  
They don't have to be timed & served to temperature, which alleviates a great deal of pressure.  
But they do have to be delicious and beautiful and push guests, to push their own limits, 
as to just how much the palate & waist can stand!  The empty pie tins seemed to hint at success.

Yosemite Falls
Table cleared, felted owls & silver, carefully put away, we packed the car & headed to Yosemite.  The heated canvas tent of Curry Village was in sharp contrast to all the lovely trappings of the day before.  
But the simplicity of our accommodations was overwhelmed by the grandeur of our surroundings.  
We hiked to the top of falls; 
marvelled at the site of El Capitan; 
and ice skated for hours under Half-Dome, 
a full moon and a star-filled sky.

Surrounded by those that I love, 
in such a breathtaking space, 
it was hard to not feel 
overwhelmed by thankfulness.  

Now back to work with our new website and the holiday season kicking into full gear, 
I'm reminded of how thankful I am 
to be able to do the work that I love 
and have the opportunity to share it all 
with so many lovely clients.

And for that, I thank you.

Our Holiday Trunkshow

We had a great time at our Holiday Trunkshow, last week.  
Stacy Achuck hosted the event at her beautiful home and 
invited Mill Valley's The Store 
& Zin Hefer from Stella & Dot, to also partake.

We brought along our Off-the-Rack Collection of holiday dresses & 
our Bespoke Collection, where customers were able to create their own dresses 
with the colors & fabrics of their choosing.

We couldn't resist sharing these photos, of one of our favorite customers.  
She wears her ses petites mains' Lainey dress & Peony Blossom, oh so beautifully. 
 Looks like she is ready for the holidays.

 If you need help getting ready for the holidays--just contact us, we are happy to help!

Veterans' Day

Remembering our Veterans today and their enormous sacrifice.  
With a red poppy & the beautiful poem by Emily Dickinson, which reminds of their true sacrifice and the delicate balance of 'victory'.  
You are not forgotten.
Success is counted sweetest
By those who ne'er succeed.
To comprehend a nectar
Requires sorest need.

Not one of all the purple Host
Who took the Flag today
Can tell the definition
So clear of Victory

As he defeated--dying--
On whose forbidden ear
The distant strains of triumph
Burst agonized and clear!
