Tippi Farmland

As a child I had a special fondness for my grandmother's charming toile wallpaper in her entryway and up the staircase, which depicted a serene English countryside. In a creative twist, I crafted a textile illustrating the lush farmlands of Sonoma County. This design not only adorns the walls of my home as a bespoke wallpaper but now breathes life into the fabric of the Tippi dress, a personal favorite in my collection. 

Below Tia is wearing the Yellow Barcelona which we have restocked because it's a customer favorite. Please note she is 5'10" and wearing size small so it's probably shorter on her than it will be on you. :) 

Claudia Skirt

I do love this tiered maxi skirt style. I decided we needed to offer it in even more prints in so we've added 2 prints to the Claudia collection. Renae is showing off the new Corinth Pink print with the Cora Pink top, kind of a tongue twister! Below I've highlighted more tops that make beautiful pairings with Claudia. 

After that you will find Natalie in our new Jubilee print with and assortment of tops that all go beautifully with this multi-colored textile. I especially like the gingham shirts layered with the new Eve top and the Joy top. 

Eve

This little shell top is great solo as well as layered over our Kathryn shirts. I love to wear it both ways! it's new to the collection and comes in 4 great colors. The rib knit makes the fit easy, it's super stretchy. 

Kathryn Gingham

For a light, bright addition to the Kathryns we've added Pink Gingham and Yellow Gingham. I think layering these under the Eve top is really cute. Lots of mixing and matching can happen with these pieces. 

Restock

We just restocked our Clementine dress in Pink Dots because it's a perfect piece for Valentine's Day. I really love the extra tall collar stand on this piece with exaggerated round collar. I've worn my casually as well as dressed up. Faith looks like she's ready for whatever comes her way. So fresh and pretty!

A Great Day

Yesterday felt like a series of divine appointments – do you know the kind? An extraordinary sequence of meetings unfolded, culminating in dinner with my college roommate, Heidi. She was in town for the FOG Art+Design show at Fort Mason in SF. When I arrived at the show and called to locate her, to our delight, we were just steps apart. Isn't it just magical when moments like that occur?

Our dinner was a delightful —engaging conversation peppered with hearty laughter. Heidi, now the CEO of the Orange County Museum of Art (OCMA), has always been that friend I can turn to in a pinch for good advice. Her ability to wade through complexity with remarkable clarity brings a sense of comfort that's hard to articulate. It's reassuring to know she's always just a phone call away, ready to lend an ear or offer guidance.

Our lives are infinitely richer for the connections we forge and sustain. I am reminded to appreciate my relationships; they are true treasures. Get together with a friend. It's just good.

love,
Lesley
