My favorite iphone App of the moment: ShakeIt Lite. It makes a polaroid camera out of your phone and is hours of entertainment!

first look

This is one of the images of my Fall 2010 lookbook, which I'm finalizing this week.
I ended up taking all of the pictures this time, because I just wanted to get it done and out of the way. I'm learning a bit more about lighting techniques, so the next photo shoot that I do will hopefully be even better. It's fun having another creative outlet and I'm excited to experiment more!

working pics

I snapped a ton of pictures these past few months, but I've been too busy to go through them all until recently.

Here are a couple that I took while creating textures for my Fall 2010 collection.
And this one, which I may have posted before, but I'll post anyway because Monkey's just too cute sometimes and also a very good assistant. Actually...moments later she probably growled, hissed and stormed off. She doesn't handle constructive criticism very well, apparently.

spring cleaning

(eventhough, technically not yet Spring; especially not here in NY!)

I've posted some samples up on Etsy this week, because currently my rack is pulling out of the wall because it's too heavy. And now my cutting tables are all covered with clothes to alleviate the racks, and so I've been cutting on the floor.

I do need to get more racks, but a quick solution is spring cleaning the studio of things I've been holding on to. I need to do more than just a few samples, though. It's so hard to part with some these pretty things, and I am definitely a pack rat! :)

I need to make even more room, because I'm currently having a few styles from my Spring collection produced that I'll be selling on my website and in NY.This is one of the lovelies I'm letting go of. I might have a few more throughout the week, too.

This is how my racks used to look last spring, shortly after I moved in. Color organized and all! Ahh, memories....
