birthday jacket.

Saturday, November 19, 2016

 For anyone who follows my instagram feed, you're already seen this coat. Isn't it amazing? One of those things that you b-line for when you walk into a store and that's literally the only thing you need becaue at that point, it doesn't get much better. That's how it worked for me. I love Free People. But in particular, I love their boots and coats. They're pieces I'm willing to splurge on and they always hold up so well with wear. This coat is 100% suede (sorry anti-leather friends) with black embroidery all over the front and back yokes. The bell sleeve and ruffle front pull in that gorgeous Victorian look. They say on your birthday it's your day to shine, and I'll tell you I certainly felt like I did. XO

 Hey everyone! Have you seen my bag? You must have - the print is incredible, right? Local artist Shannon McDonald has a new trick up her sleeve - turning her prismatic prints into custom clutches. She hand paints her design and then has a fabric created with that exact design. Then these clutches are hand crafted using that very fabric. For someone like me, these bags are great. I don't like to particular wear my color within my outfits but pulling my look together with a statement clutch, now that's totally my thing. And if you do like wearing color, even better. Here you go, rich color for days! A clutch is the perfect bag in my opinion. Don't want to lug around a tote? A clutch fits the perfect amount of necessities - keys, phone, cash, cards. Feeling like maybe that's not going to hold enough for you? Use this clutch as a fun piece to toss inside your larger bag to help you organize. Shannon is starting an Indiegogo page (that you can find here) to help raise the funds to cover the costs of the first batch of bags that have been created. No donation is too small. With each donation you'll receive something special from Shannon herself. Now get yourself a bag before they're gone!!! XO

So when I'm not working away at Nordstrom, I like to make little mini leather goods. It's been a long time coming but I uploaded a few of my pieces to my Etsy. Since I don't have an actual site for selling, here it is for everyone who is curious. Any custom orders, please contact me at!
