Vintage Blue and Pink Floral Dress

 

 

I love love LOVE this dress, and if I had a choice i’d keep it for myself, but I need to let this dress go to a new home.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This pattern is one that I hand drafted myself. It is a design that I came up with on my own, and one that I am most proud of. The fabric it old than most people I know. It was printed in 1979 and is no longer available for purchase… ANYWHERE.

Without knowing this fun fact, I turned what could have been an really expensive fabric, into a moderately expensive, handmade, eco friendly summer dress. This fabric was donated to me by an interior designer in the local San Francisco Bay Area. This fabric would have ended up in a landfill, but instead it has been turning into a very cute and flirty summer dress. It features a plunging neckline, low/no back, circle skirt, pockets, and the knowledge that it is eco friendly.

This dress should be should for $220, just because of the time spent sewing and the exclusivity of the fabric alone. Alas, I am needing to clean out my closet of old items, in order to make way for new ones. This means that this dress IS ON SALE!!

YAYA!

I am selling int for $160, down from $220 and a steal of a deal.

I can promise you that you will FOREVER be the only person in the work who has this dress.

Dionisio Winery Event

Oh… this weekend as been crazy busy, but it was truly a blessing and amazing!

 

For those of you who didn’t know (which seems like a lot… ) I did an event with Dionisio Winery this past Friday. Jimmy and his wife Clarice are the owners/winemakers for that fine establishment and I feel truly blessed to have met both of them.  (Photos to come… uploading is taking FOREVER!)

First, let me tell you about the wine.

The grapes are from California, yes… that is no secret, but the wine is made right here in Houston. The grapes are shipped next day air, the fruit that is infused comes from Texas (we love local) and carries no pesticides… (we really love Organic). There are very little preservatives added (a bottle only lasts 3 years) and there are NO artificial flavors added what so ever. Now you might be asking yourself… well what does all this mean to me?

It means you have a good clean wine that is good for your body AND wont give you a hangover!! Did I mention it tastes AMAZING!

Being a California girl, I have high standards, but this wine is seriously amazing.

Now, when Jimmy asked me to do an event with him, I didn’t ever question it.. I just said YES!

The event featured the wine… obviously.. and a trunk show by yours truly. We had quite a few local models, who walked around and mingled with the event attendees, as well as taking pictures of my Summer 2014 designs.

There are not enough works to describe how truly grateful I am… but here are my thanks:

Thank you to the following people:

  • Jimmy and Clarice for hosting the show, and for continuing to push me along the way.
  • Emeka with GnationCrown.com for helping me find last minute models and makeup
  • Bianca with Joie De Vivre Artistry for doing all the makeup on the fabulous models
  • The models who showed up, took photos, and modeled their butts off.. thank you ladies
  • Daniel with dwayne studio45foto for taking event photos
  • Jared Pierson with FullFramFX Photography for showing up, showing your love and being generally awesome
  • Matt Bednar…. my boyfriend.. you have to deal with so much.. thank you for putting up with me
  • My hula sisters. Thank you for showing up and supporting me. Your love, friendship and sisterhood means the world to me. I love you.
