Hey there! So last week, I hit a snag in the progress of one of my designs. The navy and red Knot design I had planned to print on silk jersey, for more Luxury Circle Scarves, did not work out. Disappointing for sure, but something I must move past. This week I regrouped and focused on developing my silk flower necklaces, which has been so much fun. I already sold one... yay! I guess a positive attitude never fails to bring good things... so I'd like to share some good news! I'll be selling my collection at the SF Bazaar Holiday Show at Nightlife at the Academy of Sciences on Thursday December 8 from 6-10 pm. Please join me and tell all your friends! It'll be a super fun evening. See link below for more details.
You can't ever go wrong with black and white, and especially if they're stripes! Here are a few inspiring highlights from the Lanvin SS '17 Ready to Wear Paris show. I've always loved and followed the beautiful and sophisticated aesthetic of Lanvin, one of the oldest Fashion Houses ever! The refined and elegant trimmings and details are always what really inspire me; the ribbon, the flowers, the bows, the chains, the feathers... I love every piece! What's your favorite detail? I'd love to know! XO, C
Hello friends! As all the Fall Fashion Weeks are happening around the globe, and featuring Spring/Summer 2017 collections, I have to admit that I'm not ready to think about Spring or Summer yet. I'm just getting ready for Fall! However, there's always inspiration to be found on the Runways, no matter what the season. I've been especially inspired by the Dolce and Gabbana show in Milan... over the top, fun, exciting with so many beautiful elements, including of course... flowers! Below are just a few examples. I've also included a detail of the Silk Blouse I'm developing... What do you think? I love it and I'm so excited to finalize this design! Enjoy! XO, C

Good morning! You know the first thing I noticed leaving my house this morning? The light. The sunlight to be more specific. Every year, I know that my favorite season is upon us when I notice that warm and low light of Fall start to glow. Those of us in San Francisco also know it's about that time for a few weeks of beautiful sunny weather. Yay! And speaking of beautiful sunny weather, I'm off this weekend to visit my bestie Marcela in San Diego! I'm bringing her a Mustard 'X' circle scarf to welcome the new season. Can't wait to see you tomorrow Tia! XO
Below is a picture of Marcela and me in Milan last Fall; it was such a great time! More on Milan in my next post... Milan Fashion Week has begun! It's always so inspiring.
What's your favorite thing about Fall? I'd love to hear!

Also, I'm developing a cap sleeve silk blouse which will feature some kind of self-fabric embellishment. Right now it's a Fringe and a Flower Detail!
