Holiday is in-store, in the window, and filling the racks at Bella Vita Home.

We delivered our final shipment of
the Holiday Collection to
our PopUp Shop at Bella Vita Home last night.  

And what a fun payoff to help get the
pieces on dress forms,
ready to line up in the window.
Can't you just imagine these three sitting down to
dinner next week at Thanksgiving dinner?
The kid's table never looked so chic & elegant!

And don't forget to mark you calendars for our
Holiday shopping event--
December 6, 2014, 11am - 2pm.

Adora in Winter White, she's Nutcracker ready!

Each year, when I design our Holiday Collection, I design into what I think is the ideal dress for any little girl's trip to see the Nutcracker Ballet.

Whether it be at Lincoln Center, San Francisco's War Memorial or your local ballet school, there is nothing that marks the holiday season excitement like this event, as far as I am concerned.

When I was, maybe, nine years old, I received my own double album set of the Tchaikovsky's classic for Christmas.
While at first glance, I thought, 'why am I getting all this classical music?'  But upon hearing it, my sister and I fell in love--
and it has been a holiday-must ever since.

Our Adora dress, in Winter White Alyce Dot, was definitely designed with Clara in mind.
Or really, for the young girl going to see Clara, the Rat King, the Sugar Plum Fairies, the lovely Snow Queen & of course, the Nutcracker himself!

Crisp & clean, like the Snow Fairies themselves.  The perfect amount of elegance for a special night out.  And just the right amount of sweetness (or rather, Sugar Plum Fairy-ness) for our Tiny Chic customer.

Enjoy your holiday season & may you find yourself quietly humming the Waltz of the Snowflakes as you go!

Tiny Chic Giveaway

I recently discovered Mamoo Kids, the coolest, sweetest bags for kids of all sizes, made right here in the Bay Area.  

I loved their graphics--especially the VW Bug--they appeal to kids & adults alike.   Their shapes--especially the tiny little messenger bag--is scaled perfectly for the little handler.  The fabrics are durable, yet soft, in sumptuous colors that you can't help but notice.  And then I met Anna--the founder/designer--& loved here too!  Its all too good.

So enjoy this giveaway of our Ses Petites Mains Tiny Chic Clothing with Mamoo Kids adventure bags--gift cards for the lucky winner to both brands--you can't really go wrong!

Women in Design--Baylor Chapman of Lila B. Designs

For sometime, I have been thinking about devoting some space & time in our Blog to feature fellow San Francisco Designers who provide me with inspiration--be it in their work, where they work, how they work, how they came to their work.  Whatever the source of the inspiration, I would like to celebrate a bit of it.  

So here goes, my first feature!  

This week, I had the sweet pleasure of meeting the super talented floral designer and founder of Lila B. Designs,
Baylor Chapman.   

Her work has inspired me for some time, so it was really exciting to meet the 'woman behind the garden', in her spectacular workspace/studio/showroom at Stable Cafe in San Francisco.  

Being a believer in the 'art of the find' myself, I have an enormous appreciation for how she can transform the most ordinary object--say a shutter--into a stunning living wall hanging.  Or a tiny tea cup reinvented as a precious succulent vessel.  

Her creations never cease to make me stop & ponder the design.

I'll be sharing more details about a Trunk Show/Holiday event that we will be doing together in December, so stay tuned, you wont want to miss it.

In the meantime, check out her beautiful book, The Plant Recipe, where she shares her knowledge of plants and eye for design.   It would make a perfect holiday gift for someone with (or without) a green thumb.
