Spring Has Sprung Summer Flats

Mar 24, 2012

Kate Spade Elina Cork Flats

Every spring I fortuitously find the
flawless “go to” flats that will adorn my feet as a loyal companion, complementing
practically any outfit combination my imagination may fathom.  A well-crafted shoe of metallic-flecked cork by
Kate Spade was as eye-catching to my eyes, as a cold tall glass of sangria is lip
smacking to my lips on a sultry hot day. 

It’s been a very hectic time in my life
with setting up the factory, meetings, travel, designing, etc. This blog and
its’ delightful readers continue to be a wonderful daily oasis.

A Productive Day

Mar 22, 2012

Woke up, coffee and headed over to the Leather Factory in Fall River, MA. 

Carlos gave me a sneak peak of the latest luxurious hide colors he recently developed.  Very excited to get designing for Fall!

I met with leather craftsman Frank Clegg to check out the rest of his latest Tuscany Collection.

A girl can never have TOO many bags.  Right??

I picked up a batch of our leather belt tabs to bring back for our stitchers.

Dropped by the button manufacturer to pick up freshly struck anchors and buttons.

Back at the factory we worked until the wee hours of the night and nicely packaged up many a package.
