Vain and Vapid Summer 2010 Lookbook: Pt.2


Orion Tie Front Dress.
Leo Shawl Collar Trapeze Dress, cotton.

Indus Dress, cotton.


Ursa Major Dress in linen and cotton.


... and finally, the final four pieces from the summer collection!

I'm trying something a bit different this time around with the shop updates. To try to get as many of the different styles as possible out at once and accommodate different sizing requests I will be updating the shop weekly with 4-5 of the pieces from the collection and the buyer can request the size of their choice. Each piece will then be made to order and will be available in XS,S,M,L. I will rotate the selection so all of the 7 pieces can be available as often as possible or at least make any favorites available more frequently.

Shop Update This Monday at noon EST. The following items will be in the shop:

Cassiopeia Dress.
The Pavo Dress.
The Leo Shawl Collar Dress.
Orion Tie Front Dress.
The Darcy Skirt.

Vain and Vapid Summer 2010 Lookbook: Pt.1


Cassiopeia Dress.



Pavo Dress.



The Darcy Skirt in Ikat Chambray.

Make some room in the closet.... I'm really happy to finally bring the first part of my summer lookbook! After ages of toiling in front of a sewing machine, what seems like enough paper and muslin to circle the globe several times and a torn rotator cuff I finally bring you the first 3 items available this summer.

I was really happy to work with Alana again on the photoshoot. It's always a pleasure to collaborate with her, not only does she take the most amazing photos but she also made these beautiful collages for my lookbook. She's a great multitasker, check out some of her other lovely creations here and on her blog.

I can now see how diamonds can become a best friend and turquoise at the very least, a very close acquaintance.
