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.

Springtime in Eldora, Colorado

My sweet Max and I went up to Eldora, Colorado yesterday to visit one of his close friends' since childhood, Dechen Hawk. Dechen just moved to the sweetest little cabin up there to get away from the hustle and bustle so he could concentrate on his sweet soul music. Eldora has a nearby ski resort in the winter, but now the town is a cluster of cabins in the wilderness without any store or business of any kind whatsoever. It is the place you go to "get away" for sure! I had two dresses for the shop to photograph that were just so perfect for this kind of setting, so we had a wonderful day of visiting with dear friends, hiking and a little business thrown in as well.
