As I always have said the over sized cotton hand loomed tunics are my first love.  They are flattering on so many people.  Plus the pieces allow you to play around with proportion and various ways of styling them.  Be free and have fun with your clothes.  Such a joy to experiment variety of combination.

Hand-loomed tunic inspired by architectural shape paired with IDOM jeans with backpack from Miss Lonely Hearts via NYC.

Backpack from Miss Lonely Hearts designed by my dear friend Jenny Yuen.  All the leather handbags are made in New York.

Another lovely block printed over sized hand loomed cotton tunic.

You could style the piece with a belt to give it a more tailored look.

Shot by lovely Ann Ploeger, styled by wonderful Caitlin McCloskey, and yours truly.  IDOM girl is Iris.

This week most things in the shop are 50% off.  Hope to see you soon.  Have a brilliant Tuesday!

Friday Inspiration

My most favourite dresses as a kiddo were polka dots including my swimming suit.  Yep polka dots and stripes together were also my favourite combo.  Things haven’t change much since.  I still adore polka dots.  Here is my grown up version for S/S12.  Yes, and I have been wearing this sample around town.  Can’t help it…

Shot by Elizabeth Russell-Baumgartner, styled by Katie Barton and yours truly.  Hair and makeup by Lori Fale.  IDOM girl is Katherine Konen.  Collaborated with Velia Salinas and Caitlin McCloskey.  Can’t wait until next summer to make this dress.

Please visit our newest member of our IDOM family, Rebecca today.  She could show you all the new beauties in the shop.  Wishing you a fantastic Friday.

Sneak Peak S/S 12

Elizabeth was hard at work on our S/S12 images.  The photos are just so light, soft, and dreamy.  I can’t wait to share more pics with you.  Here is a little sneak peak of what to look forward to for next spring and summer.

Thank you to Elizabeth Russell-Baumgartner for shooting the beautiful images and for her hard work.  Many thanks to Katie Barton for gorgeous set design and all things pretty.  Thank you to Lori Fale for your vision of dreamy hair and makeup and for all the funny stories.  Special thanks to our forever IDOM girls Velia and Caitlin.  Can’t imagine going on this journey without incredible friends like you.  Thank you to our two beauties Katherine and Sunny.  You two were such troopers even when the weather got so cold and the horse was being naughty.  It was a pleasure to work with our little IDOM village.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Enjoy this blue sky and sunshine everyone.

We love working with Lori.  She is an incredible hair and makeup stylist.

We had our photo shoot adventure last month at Cannon Beach.  The logistic of everyone being at the beach plus renting the horse and the pony were at time overwhelming.  But, I think the result should be amazing.  Many thanks to our incredible crew Elizabeth, Katie, Lori, Caitlin, Velia, Katherine and Sunny.

Elizabeth and her equipments.

Our girls are hard at work.  Katherine to the left and Sunny to the right.

IDOM babies are on holiday at the beach.

Our lovely and talented makeup and hair stylist Lori.

Our partner in crime, Katie.  She is an exquisite stylist and an incredible prop master.  Hard at work making our tee pee on the beach.

Lori works her magic on Katherine.  I adore the hair and the flowers.

Beautiful Sunny.

Our lovely photographer, Elizabeth.  We have been collaborating together for the last 4 years.  Thanks Elizabeth for your hard work.  And for always making our dreams come true.

We are so lucky to have Velia and Caitlin on set.  They are so devoted to our little label.  Here is beautiful Velia making more flowers.  Thanks V and C for playing with us. Sorry Caitlin I can’t find any pics of you.  I think our busy bee Caitlin was taking behind the scenes photos, getting our lunch, and carrying the flash kit.  Thank you so much you two!

The giant poppies that B and I made.  They made it to the beach.

Our tee pee made by Katie, Caitlin and Velia.  It is so brilliant.

Thanks very much again to our wonderful crew for your collaboration.  More pics soon.  Enjoy your Tuesday everyone.
