Shipments have been arriving every day at the shop, and today our surprise was a couple boxes full of these amazing pillows. They are made of Blue Calico, which is a natural indigo hand dye process that originated in China 3,000 years ago. These textiles were sourced in Northern China and made into one of a kind pillows. This is a picture of a few of them... we have more in the shop :)
We have received more of the A Détacher Eleanor pumps- this time in black suede. We love the style of these shoes- the heel is the perfect height for everyday wear and also for evening. The wood of the heel looks great with the black suede upper.
A little note about the designer of A Détacher- Mona Kowalska. She is one we have admired for a long time- when living in New York, I would go into her beautiful small shop in Nolita and dream of the pieces she designed. It was obvious that she beat to her own drum- and had the qualities we hold in the highest regard for someone in fashion, business... and life. Here is a link to an interview with her ---> enjoy reading :)
The CUTEST pajamas have arrived. We received more of what we have had in the past plus some new styles and the sweet blue floral print in the first pictures. There are three pajama sets- the blue floral set, white button down with drawstring pant set and the sleeveless with drawstring pant set. There are two different night dresses and the slip with side buttons and adjustable straps. This is the best sleepwear- classic and comfortable.
Spring is here! We've received many new things at the shop- including silk dresses, jumpsuits and blouses, a new batch of John Derian plates, and some special antiques from a buying trip last weekend. The victorian cross stitch of a deer and landscape shown above is one of our favorite pieces we brought back.
A moment away with friends and work in LA ... our dear friend Susan's house that she is just moving into with her family... with the antlers not hung yet (we tried to persuade her to leave them like this) ... and the most impressive succulents/euphorbias- these were taller than the house they were in front of by 6 feet! Incredible :)
