These are croquis I did for my first lingerie project ever. It was this collection that I know I fell in love. I still think this project is the one I will always be most proud of. I felt like at the time, this was the project of a lifetime for me. I could re-create it over and over again in my head and seem to never grow tired of it.



My favorite part of any time of year is when we get to make it out to some pool or some beach because aside from lingerie, vintage swimwear is another one of my true loves. There is really nothing that beats it in today's world, everything from the fit, silhouette, fabric & the way they were cut for real women...sigh. Someday I will expand my business into making swimwear. Til then -

* the only part that stinks about going to viva las vegas is that my pink lame swimsuit has to wait another 5 years before it can make an appearance again!



Ack! Where have I been?! What have I been up to? Getting ready for viva las vegas for the past month or so. Because I spend all year deciding what I want to wear and of course I also have to make said garments, pretty much leaves me in a sewing cave for about 6 weeks. But its all worth it in the end!

For me, vegas is the one time a year that my best friends from all over the world - London, Australia & even Holland fly over for this weekend, we all stay rooms apart from each other down the same corridor in the hotel, and pretty much never leave each other's side for about 22 hours of each day. The trip is like dreamland - constant shopping, dancing, bands, cars, restaurants, drinks, laughing, and best of all - ensemble changes! This year for me it was 4 days =  16 outfits with 9 shoes. All fit into one carry-on bag I must say!

If you like what you see here, just wait until next year. I've got a new theme running in my head!
