kayo {the milliner}


i met kayo on the subway- i noticed her adorable high-waited shorts {not something most people should attempt to pull off!} her beautifully-made... but cheeky... green suitcase, and most of all her amazing crochet fedora {AND crochet suspenders!} so we got to talking and it turns out kayo has her own company making crochet hats that are actually well-shaped {and stylish- not a word often used to describe a crochet hat, i admit.} so check out her website: kalidoscopio

a section from a dress i made as part of my summer "muslin" project... the roses are iron-ons made from this rose collage:

the hockey team: i love the stripes!
a plastic beaded bag from the 60s {probably?} i like the mix of industrial {heat-applied plastic beads} and the dainty botanical print.


a letter dated 1860...

a blend of so many influences: printed "lace" tee & triped silk skirt

tracy {in plaid & stripes}


this is my good friend and co-worker (a wildly talented prop-stylist/ painter extraordinaire) tracy. i'd like to point out that she is wearing a classic men's shirt worn upside down... genius or what?!
