Old clothes, poetry, music and the beauty of the natural world inspire me to be present and yet transcend time at the same time. Every day in each moment we have the opportunity to create magic in myriad ways and for me clothing is such a deep part of that. What character do I feel today? What am I going to make and give to the world? An outfit in itself can be a work of art...I guess that is what is meant by style...how we collage together clothes out of how we feel emotionally and physically. It is magic really, the creation of a beautiful illusion that we present to the world that affects those around us. The ability to create is one of the greatest gifts we have as human beings, so in my small way I hope by offering wonderful clothes and old goods I can inspire those who come across my shop to dream their dreams and create their own magic.

Channeling the Inner Goddess

Every woman is a goddess whether she is aware of this or not. There are many days where I wake up and need to channel the goddess within and so I go to the part of my closet where all of the goddess dresses are hanging. I kid you not~ Sometimes I want to channel the simple beauty of ancient greece and the strength of Aphrodite or Artemis or Athena, sometimes it is the women of magic such as Circe or a very modern Anita Pallenberg and sometimes it is a goddess of the silver screen such as Marilyn Monroe or Jayne Mansfield. All woman have their own innate magic and that comes through not only in the clothes they wear but the way they move and the way they choose to personally adorn themselves. The goddess within also gives us the power to create and live out our dreams and fantasies. Maybe we can all choose one day a week to be the goddess within, to let her out whoever she may be and allow her the space to follow her dreams~
