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


Ta Ta Ta Tease Me!

WAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAAAAAA — well, really it’s ME teasing YOU! BOOM! so, we are still working hard to clean up all the images, making the look book (did someone say 15 to 20 looks?!), do all of the fun post stuff we are planning (and not telling you about yet) aaaand we’re making a film too! that’s right –we are in the editing process of a 2 and a half minute in motion vignette of I Still Love You clothing, jewelry and accessories to an original song by San Diego band Bruisecaster.  you. will. love.

but i thought it would be rude to ask you all to wait so patently and not reward you for being such lovelies.  therefore, i am releasing ONE image to give you the slightest taste — shall we call it an amuse bouche? it’s not a photo that shows you too much, but i know for a fact that this will keep you hungry for more.
