figuring out what to wear to my brother’s wedding next month in northern california was a little tricky… it could be warm or cool. this dress seems just right.



i’m happy to finally share the cover of my new book MADE BY HAND. i began working on this book in january 2012, so it’s been a long, and very fun, project. it’s currently being printed– and will release october 1st by abrams books. i’ll start to share more peeks at the book soon!

i’ve been posting here less as i’ve been using other media more– instagram and now pinterest too (i was reluctant to try pinterest for a while!). it makes me a little wistful for blogging, but the others are quicker and more convenient. and i still enjoy posting here too… just not as often.

my first batch of ebay listings are ending tonight and a new batch just started. clothing from vena cava, mociun, steven alan, etc. it’s hard to let go of these pieces– but it feels good to pare down too!




i’m happy to be offering a generous giveaway from tradlands, a small SF-based garment business. each tradlands shirt is made by hand in san francisco with textiles and trims sourced from craftsmen in the US.

contest will end at 6pm on monday (5/20) and a winner will be chosen at random.


i did a massive closet clear-out last week and started listing items on ebay. i’m going to try to list in batches over a few weeks. i had second thoughts while posting most of these… they are pieces i really like but for whatever reason haven’t worn in a while. i decided to be brutal with this closet cleanse… if i’m not wearing it, then it’s time for a new home!


i stopped by ilana kohn‘s new studio on friday and bought this beautiful abby dress from her spr ’13 collection. i have the abby dress in another print and wore it a lot last summer– it’s so perfect for hot summer weather because it’s so light and airy. the fit is great.

good news! : ilana agreed to offer a special mother’s day discount from today through friday (may 6-10).
