A Report from Inside the Snow Globe

I love it when the snow flies especially when the flakes are huge and downy. The view from my living room makes me feel like I'm inside a snow globe. Ever wonder what the little people, in the little house, inside your snow globe were up to? Why making dresses, of course. Here's my report from the inside:)

This blue spiral lace over a cream lining reminds me of the intricate frost patterns forming out on my front step. That might be a nice reminiscence while wearing this on a hot summer day.

Everyone love a LBD. Why? It makes you look fabulous and put together with so little effort. It's the embodiment of no thought required, simple, savvy, sleek dressing. Here's my version the LBLD (little black lace dress).

I'm getting close to being ready for the full collection photo shoot. Can't wait to see these on the models!

Sun Day Dress

Here's yesterday's creation. A new design with nice wide straps for those of us who need to hide our bra straps. Looks lovely on a girl with arms:)

Sundress in the Snow

Meet my studio companion, yes companion. Hey, we spend a lot of time together and she's definitely a good listener.

I thought I'd wheel her out in to the snow, rather than figuring out how to photoshop in a background, to give you a little taste of the of the dichotomy between the weather around me and the weather I'm designing for. It was a quick shoot and she didn't complain at all:)
Though I love the powder days, I'm definitely looking forward to the summer weather for the simple joys of wearing less than three layers at all times and sun kissed skin!

Tropical Dotsicle

Yes, I'm finding this outfit deliciously colorful and dotty. I think it's making it's way into my closet as I write to join the vibrant color party that's been happening there lately. But don't worry I'll make more!

Spring is in the Air

Well, not really. We actually have some major winter storms heading this way but I wanted to give you a few peeks into the Spring 2012 Collection that I've been working on. For all of us northerners who survived those excruciatingly short days, I know you understand the importance of a vivid imagination. Here's to us and to the returning of the light, drawn out days and sun kissed skin!

I am loving this new little raindrop print skirt. It's great with a solid top.

Or perfect for mixing prints.

This "splatter" skirt is fun as a black and white ensemble.

Or to give the expression "that outfit looks painted on" a new meaning with a positive spin.

Pink and red is always a fun color combo in my book.

But I love pink and green too!

I'd better get back to sewing before the snow arrives because I'm planning on taking off a few powder days. Even if winter days are short, if they are a fluffy brilliant shade of white, then everything looks a little brighter. So hip hip hurray for all the little flakes! Ha, you know what I mean.
