New Dresses + Holiday Gift Sets! ūüĆł

Hello Old Friend

Penelope wrap dress is one of the first styles I made. It's a front to back wrap which means it goes over your head, ties in the back and then in the front. End result = a snug and flattering fit. 

This time around I updated the dress by adding pockets because i can't seem to get through the day without them.

This is a small batch of dresses. Layer with Ida mock tee for cold weather. Wear bare in warm weather. :)

Our Fit and Flare

Claire is back‚ÄĒ our fit and flare that so many of you love. Fresh for the upcoming season in Vintage Floral Teal. So many of you asked for this style. Equally requested was this print. What a perfect combination!

Oh My Darling, Clementine

Oh my this shirtdress is so good to me. Plenty of ease through the hips and flattering fit at the bust. The A-line style is great with or without the sash. Click through to see more.

New Arden‚ú®

Green Wave

I added this dress to the website on Wednesday and I can already tell it's going to be a popular one. It started selling immediately.

Green wave is just a fun dress and the colors are so pretty. Pair it with the Esme scarf if you like a matching dress/scarf set. :)

Grace Dress

These pretty dresses have arrived. I'm wearing the Hydrangea print and Jenny has on the Magenta Blooms. She works next door so I snagged her to model for me today.

This dress is so pretty on her and it really did make her smile. Extra cute with her white tennis shoes. Click through to see full length photo.

The Grace dress is perfect for so many things‚ÄĒ a wedding, holiday party or just out to dinner. I love my box pleat dresses, they are so feminine. And of course they do have pockets!

Silky Valerie Tops

Back in stock for the holiday season! These silky solids are so easy and add a dressed-up look without effort. Layer with a silk scarf to add more color and texture. 

Nancy is wearing the Charcoal Valerie. I'm really loving her new haircut. Her roommate chopped it off for her.  

The pink really is a neon pink. I am thrilled with how it turned out. And the Robin's Egg Blue- this one is a restock and just so pretty. 

Restocks

We just restocked these popular Arden dresses Shakalaka Orange and Vintage Floral Brown. Click on through if you wanted one and missed out! 

Gifting

I feel like Christmas is here. Thankfully it's actually 2 months away. 

Our gift page is stocked up with more coming each week. This week we received our insulated cups and hair scrunchies. Really cute and colorful!

Last week we added the velvet embroidered pouches.

Coming soon: cosmetic bags, laptop covers, dishtowels, printed tights, totes and more. 

Sneak Peek

This burnt orange cardigan is coming very soon! It's really soft with great drape and patch pockets. I just love it and with this scarf and faux suede skirt.

All three will be ready hopefully next week. Fingers crossed. Oh- and did you see the matching scrunchie? Underneath I have on Bridget in Vintage Floral Brown. Perfect Thanksgiving outfit. 

Hope you all have a great weekend!

love, Lesley

Another Week, Another Email.

Magnolia Obsession

I had a magnolia tree in my front yard when I was young. I loved to climb it and remember perching high above the ground and nervous about the descent. Up was always easier than down! I think I've always forged ahead without thinking through everything. It's my nature. 

Just in‚ÄĒ¬†Tilda in Magnolia. I think this is a pretty dress for holiday and beyond. Lots of whites, a minty celery, chartreuse and¬†a black ground. This is that dress you keep for a very long time. Especially if magnolias have a special place in your heart.¬†¬†

Golden Gate Park

Wednesday I spent the afternoon at our factory in San Francisco. Afterwards I drove my design assistant, Nancy,¬†home through Gold Gate Park. We popped out to take photos of our new Maeve dresses‚ÄĒ 2 prints to choose from.

It was a beautiful evening. Still warm enough to go without a sweater. Just a perfect California fall day.

Annie Stripe tee

After dropping Nancy at her apartment I went to my son's flat and we went to dinner together. He took this photo of me in the new Annie tee. 

Here's how weekly emails happen:  I wash my hair Tuesday night or Wednesday morning. I carry around a bag of new clothes on Wednesday and Thursday. I twist the arm of however is with me (usually Curtis) to take yet ANOTHER photo.

Thankfully I'm surrounded by friends and family with a lot of patience! :) It's an ongoing part of my life now. And I thank you all for reading them and for your kind words. You keep me going!

Gifting

Our velvet pouches have been so popular for gifting. We just got our new designs in for the holidays. 

Below are just two of the sets that I posted yesterday. Lots to choose from. Even a larger size for iPads and more. Have you started your holiday shopping?

New Discovery

Scrolling through my personal photos to share something and this is might be the most exciting thing of my week.

Am I the only one that had never had these popsicles? Just tried one for the first time last week and finished off the box in three days. They are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.  My new favorite treat. 

I hope you are all finding new things to love, even if it's just a honeydew popsicle!

love, Lesley

New Dress!

Easy Dress-Up

This Betsy dress is great for the coming season of gathering. I love how comfortable it is to wear. The fabric is soft and stretchy with an elevated sheen. Gently wash this dress in the machine and tumble dress as a delicate. 

Choose from elegant Charcoal or go with a pop of beautiful Olive. Both will serve you well this holiday season! Forget your little black dress and say hello to Betsy. 

Winnie pant

We cut the last of our Birds and Butterflies cotton sateen in this cute Winnie pant. 

This trouser fits like our Nora pant but is cut with a full length inseam. Perfect now that the weather is cooling. The mock turtleneck I'm pairing it with is coming soon. I love a dark navy this time of year!

Feeling Better

I am for the most part past Covid. Just a cough is lingering. I made it through the week working all day each day. Then dinner and in bed at 7:30.

Admittedly I got into a slump and wasn't quite sure how I would get back to doing all that I need to do. I just took it one day at a time with low expectations. 

Closing with a cute photo that my customer/friend Amanda sent to me after I had spent 10 days in my PJs. This one really made me smile. :)

Hope you all have a healthy and fun weekend!

love, Lesley

Covered in Tulips.

My Week

I've been in bed since last weekend with Covid. I'm finally feeling better and am eager to get back to work.  Now I'm just trying to remember where I left things when I came down with it a week ago. I have a bit of brain fog! 

Yes, my pajamas match my bedding. Goofy, I know. The pink tulips make me happy, as does my dog Lily who has been keeping me company.

Just In

I do love a good striped tee. We have four colors to choose from.

Thanks to all these lovely ladies that modeled them for me! And a big thank you to my photographer, Avery. :)

Cardigans

We just restocked our Carly cardigan in Black, Navy and Tomato. In addition we have these new colors below: Pearl, Cinnamon and Bordeaux.

I must have 10 of these in my closet. They are my favorite layer year-round. 

Esme Scarf

I just added this Esme scarf to the website. It looks so pretty with all the fall colors! It's one of my favorites.
Amanda is wearing hers with her Olive Britt blazer.

Restock

We finally got our restock in of Valerie in Black. This is that top you will wear all the time, I promise. So cute on Megan with her Orange Plaid Sarah pants! The perfect October outfit. 

Thankful 

I am so thankful to have a great team. Annamaria and Aizah held down the fort at the warehouse this week while Nancy and I were both home sick. They shipped all your packages, counted inventory and stocked the store. 

And Avery single-handedly styled and photographed all the clothing. Here she is signing off on Thursday night at 6:30pm. Finally done. 

She's off on a 3-week trip to Europe. I'm going to miss her!
Til next week...

love, Lesley

Matching Sets: The Way To Go!

Valerie + Celie = Jumpsuit

New Valerie tops are here and I am showing them as a matching set with the Celie pant just because I'm loving all over print. Plus they look great to mix and match as well. 

This little blue bug was my find but has become Curtis's love. It's too hard for me to drive but I love being a passenger. Even in the tiny backseat. The world just looks better through the window of an old VW. I can't explain why but it's a real thing.  

More...

Below are two more Valerie + Celie combos for you to choose from. I honestly don't have a favorite. I'm so curious to see what you all pick!

Is Blue For You?

I love the Gigi caftan dress and just cut some of the Blue Flower Power print in this style. It's a small batch because I didn't have a lot of fabric. 

I go between medium and large but in Gigi I prefer the large because I like a looser fit. If there's one left at the end of next week I'm snagging it. :) I'll give you all first dibs. 

Quick Trip 

My assistant Nancy and I went to LA this week to shop for fabric at the LA Textile show. It was a quick trip and her first ever business trip, so that made it extra fun for both of us. 

We had great meals, acai bowls and the best iced coffee ever. We stayed in a beautiful hotel. We shopped for fabric and found some things we love. And met new people.

All good. 
Wishing goodness for you this weekend.

love, Lesley

It's All About Blazers....

Britt Blazers

Britt blazers are here for Fall!
THREE colors to choose from: Brown, Olive and Black. 

ABOVE: My friend Donna came by to visit me today and I twisted her arm to pose in a photo. We've been sitting together in church since 2004. It's our thing. We just find each other on Sunday morning. No plan. Show, no show, late, whatever.  A hug, a smile, maybe a tear and a prayer. 

BELOW: Elaine is modeling the Britt in black which I must say is super cute on her! Elaine has helped me on and off with production for the past few years. She always shows up with a big smile and sometimes a sweet treat. 

Great for Layering

Stella is a core piece that I keep in my closet. Three pretty colors to choose from this week. Teal, Merlot and Navy.  

Tried and True

Maeve Gems is back in stock by popular demand. 
Yay! And more prints coming soon. 
This dress is so easy to wear.  Simple, comfortable, colorful clothing makes me happy. 

Having Fun 

We are working hard in the studio and warehouse. Taking breaks and having a little fun is important. Yesterday these two made this cute little GIF at the end of a long today to add some silliness to this email. 

Thank you Nancy and Avery! (wearing their favorite Bridget tees)

My tip for the week: The secret to life is enjoying the passage time.  (lyrics by James Taylor)

Tee Time.

Bridgets Tees

Bridget tees are finally back in stock just in time for long-sleeved weather. I'm wearing mine under my Tabitha denim jumpsuit. 

Choose from three new patterns or the restock of Gems. They are so cute and easy to throw on over jeans or Audrey pants.

Restocks

Just keeping the favorites in stock for you. Our best-selling  Kathryn blouse has just been restocked! yay!

I am sitting in the entrance of my studio against my new wallpaper, just installed by me and Curtis. We used the sticker back paper and the installation went very smoothly. I haven't had time to post the new wallpaper on the website but I promise it's coming soon. 

College Friend

Kathy and I became friends at UPenn. (now she's a professor there) She is seriously one of the nicest people I know. Recently she hosted a wedding at her home for a friend of a friend of a friend! 140 people! That is way beyond me. Her over the top generosity inspires me.

She had a successful freshman drop-off at Santa Clara University. Now that her son will be on the west coast for fours years I'm sure to see more of her. I love when my east coast peeps come see me. 

I hope you all have some fun connections with old friends happening too. It really brings joy!

love, Lesley
