2009-2011 In Motion

i am both saddened and excited about the closing of one of my favorite boutiques, Topstitch Boutique.  sad for pretty obvious reasons, but excited because i know this is just the beginning of lots of new things to come from the amazingly talented and trend savvy ladies.  Tina and Linda, two of my most favoritest people, two of the hugest reasons i even have my own line, have inspired me, focused me, pushed me and held me (depending what the circumstance called for) in ways that i will be eternally grateful.

if you are in the philly area this evening, please join me to celebrate the works that Brain Gravy Creative, Topstitch Boutique and I Still Love You have collaborated on over the last few years.  Follow the journey through stop motion animated girls getting “tried on” by their clothes, see swirls of ladies working it down the runway of the Topstitch Boutique Holiday 2009 fashion show hosted by Rose Luardo and Guns Garcia.  Witness the glamazons of I Still Love You’s 3 part trilogy (redundant, what?!) slithering across the screen.  I am positive you will enjoy them, at least half us much as we enjoyed making them.

see you tonight

hi there,

it’s been a while.  i apologize.  we’ve been moving which of course takes up more time than one wants to allow for — as does making a f#&%@g website.. so, because i just cannot stand it any more, without further ado, i would like to present to you the I Still Love You NYC Spring Summer 2011 film by I Still Love You NYC and Benjamin Webb of Brain Gravy Creative.  Enjoy. (and watch in full screen)

I am very excited to tell you that the brand new I Still Love You NYC website is almost finished!  We have the film ready and hanging in the corridors just waiting to amaze and delight you. You. Will. Love.  While we finish everything up, please enjoy this teaser (love letter?) from Brain Gravy Creative, and i’ll tell you what.  Those words at the end?  I meant every one.

love you.

I love the playful quality of the I Still Love You sheer halter mullet dress sandwiched between a slate blue silk dress and sheer mullet top.  When Leah got dressed, she started skipping around and the layers fluttered so beautifully, that even though it was snowing outside, for a minute we were in the midst of a perfect spring day.  there is nothing so happy as a flirty dress in spring.
