I love it when my customers send photos of themselves wearing my designs. There is no better way to show how a piece of clothing can work than a real person wearing it. A real person in a real place.
So I was beyond happy when I received these fantastic photographs from Nina. In each one she is looking so beautiful. All elements, jackets, blouses, jewelry, curated perfectly.
Below, a jacket and blouse from a few years back. Still looking fresh and new. Perfectly paired with the right necklace and earrings.
Below, a swing coat and matching blouse. She knows how to choose colors that work for her! Her complexion glows in the luscious, warm red tones.
We met a number of years ago, at the Baltimore craft show. She stopped in my booth and found a wool coat appliquéd with an antique paisley shawl. Ever since and over all these years and many, many craft shows, we’ve gotten to know each other and become friends.
It’s one of the very best things about the craft shows. You make friends.
Below, a pieced and appliquéd jacket worn over a matching blouse in the most gorgeous kimono silks and paired with a fantastic necklace.
What a wonderful tradition! A photo to commemorate an outing. Fantastic.
Each piece of my clothing is like a child. I create it, raise it, take care of it and love it. Then, when it’s matured and grown, it’s time to send it out into the world to live its own life.
And I want them to live good, interesting and fulfilling lives. So it feels so good to see that these pieces are living happy and fulfilling lives.

Thank you for sending me these photos Nina!
And a big thank you to Clif, your very own personal, paparazzi photographer.
