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.

Inspirational Style Muses~ Anita Pallenberg

I am starting a series on women and men who have influenced my own style and continue to inspire me and wanted to start with Anita Pallenberg. My boyfriend and I just watched the new Stones Documentary a few nights ago called Stones In Exile, about the making of the their album Exile on Main Street, which they made at a villa in the south of France called Nellcote that Keith Richards and Anita Pallenberg were living in. I was so in love with all of the old and rare footage, especially of Anita lounging around the house and grounds. At this point in time most people know of the great style of Anita Pallenberg as she truly was the first great Rock N' Roll Style muse! It is impossible to calculate her influence on the fashion of today as it is just so vast! From floppy hats, wide brim fedoras, t-shirt dresses, ethnic tunics and jewelry, furs, layering multi patterns and fabrics, velvet suits and mini skirts...the list goes on and on. A modern day style icon, Kate Moss, owes pretty much everything to Anita Pallenberg and she herself continues to influence millions of women all over the world. I am not going to get into a history of Anita Pallenberg , even though she is a fascinating woman, I just want to share photos of her amazing style and hope you enjoy it as much as I do. She has the perfect ability, which I think all great style has, which is to seem as if it was so effortless and Anita has that in spades! Check it out and I wanna thank Ms. Pallenberg as well, for just being herself.
