I'm inspired by romance, fragile things like emotions and things and people who are real - who don't have it all figured out. I like softness, things that move and flow and organic shapes and creations. I love one offs and bespoke designs because they allow me to create in the moment the things you have in your heart but can't yet see.

I love rough and tattered styles because they are vulnerable, softer and more flowing to design with. Non-conformist designs are my favorite to create.

I gain inspiration from the natural world around me and a sweet friendship with Jesus who is what my life is all about. I like to walk in the woods and on the beach, sip cocoa and see old movies. I like old houses, retro and vintage fashion and chocolate. I love shopping in thrift stores and at jumble sales. I have a weakness for quirky shoes, poetry and gentle things, like tiny children and sea otters.

Note about my design process:
Growing up in New Orleans for a few years, I was deeply influenced by French culture and fashion. I've mixed that with a bit of Charleston and Florida beach style (where I lived recently) and some rustic influences to make something a bit funky, delicate and romantic with just an edge of urban style.

I dream and work in a home studio in south Florida near Miami. I use new, upcycled and vintage textiles and garments in my designs. I love to use upcycled and vintage pieces in my designs both to savor the beautiful designs from the past, to be green or eco conscious and to enjoy amazing quality textiles no longer produced today.

*General size guideline measured around the body and down the front of the body for length.

I try to be as precise as possible but be sure to contact or email me if you need more information on a particular item's fit. Measurements are taken around the body.

* Hand made in a no pets, non-smoking home studio.

*Allergy sensitive here, so vintage and upcycled fabrics are thoroughly washed and dried before I work on them.

* Created for easy care and durability where possible.  I use a lot of raw edges for decorative effect in my designs, usually in non-stressed areas of the design. Most of these will fray minimally and can be trimmed to neaten them.
