Welcome to my new space! Thank you so much to those of you who made the jump over – and a giant hug to all new readers – I’m so genuinely happy to have you here. As my business and tastes have grown and evolved, I’ve longed for something a bit cleaner and fancier, and I’m really so excited to announce a new blog, new website, new studio AND some major business news.I’m incredibly humbled by the emotional connection so many people made to my former blog, and I promise it’s still li’l ol’ me – just with an updated look. I mean, everyone needs a new outfit every now and then, right?
The earlier stuff will remain online, in case there’s anything you’d like to reference, and here I’ll be focusing on designing for my custom clients, decorating our new home, and sharing anything else I think deserves a bit of a freak out. Like, for instance …The real big news. My brand of gowns has been evolving in the most exciting way. I’m so grateful for the success and attention the retail line has received, and having recently spent a great deal of time looking over previous photoshoots and marketing materials, I’ve realized just how proud I am of what we’ve achieved. It’s hard for me to believe I sewed those first collections on our dining room table. And in the midst of all of that chaos, I was fortunate to work with so many truly wonderful women on custom gowns – building relationships that mean more to me than I could ever say.
What I love most is the custom work – designing something unique for one woman, every time. It’s a very emotional process and that’s where my passion lies. This is next-level stuff for me, and I’m completely thrilled to announce that my studio is now focusing exclusively on custom gowns – beautifully-crafted pieces that are always one-of-a-kind. I’m still based out of Chicago, but I’ll be making trips to Los Angeles for personal consultations and I’m also willing to travel for the ultimate VIP experience.
We’re going all the way with this, tootsie pops – only the most posh treatment for my girls.I hope you like the looks of it around here, and you’ll join me on this new adventure. If you’d like to receive posts by email, there’s a little form in the sidebar, and don’t forget about me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest. I’ve also got a new YouTube channel, and can’t wait to show you what we’ve got in the works – feel free to subscribe and be one of the first in on my fun plans there. As always, thanks so much for all of your love and big hugs and kisses to you all!
