Q & A six

Q: Can you change the hair color of a design?

A: The short answer: no.

The long answer: all of our products are produced in bulk.
I design/draw one image by hand, scan it in, and design new
products from the original image. From there, every product
we sell is printed in bulk. Whether it's notecards, greeting cards,
notepads, etc.... it's all pre-printed in large quantities (so we can 
keep the price low enough to keep our customers happy) and ready to 
ship. To change the hair color means starting from scratch, which would 
make it a custom design (you can see more information about custom
designs here). You can also see more information about what products
we can do custom and which ones we can't in that post

So, to put it bluntly, what you see is what you get. All of the designs
only come as shown and on the products shown. I hope that answers
your question! Happy weekend.

Spring Flowers

Something about this week has me craving spring like
never before. I've always been such a fan of cold weather,
but I'm already storing my winter coats and wearing sandals
when it's warm enough. I'm loving this lavender color...

Q & A Five

Q: What are the latest trends from fashion week?

A: I'm honored that people even ask me this question. While I wasn't
in attendance at NYFW this season, I was tuning in closely to see
what trends would emerge (my go to for runway shots is vogue.com).
I was checking daily, reading the reviews, pouring over the coverage,
trolling instagram, etc. The climate of the fashion industry is definitely
changing in the current digital age. Some designers opted out of shows
all together, while some that previously did shows scaled down to 
intimate presentations. Long story short, change is in the air. I'm curious
to see where it leads us.

In terms of trends, there's good news. In the midst of all the change,
these things remain: white boots, pops of red and pink, chunky/
oversized sweaters, slip dresses, and an overall nod to the 80s and
90s. These things have been on the scene since last fall, so there won't
be a huge turnover for spring and fall of this year. The good news in
that is that if you've invested in said pieces already, you can still wear
them throughout the year. A sigh of relief. 




While pink and red weren't taking over the runways, there were hints
of one or the other in almost every new collection. That chunky red 
sweater you had to have last fall? Keep it. Wear it with a relaxed
silky skirt this year. Throw on a pair of white boots and you've
got the fall look nailed. 

Those white boots that every blogger is still wearing? You might
consider snagging a pair. They were shown in the form of a mule
for spring and a full fledged bootie for fall. While I'm hesitant to 
jump on board with this one, maybe a lower price point option
will do the trick. Trendy but they didn't break the bank. I'm considering
the following options:




In terms of patterns, there were nods to polka dots (both small
and oversized), gingham and the androgynous plaids seen in menswear
and suiting. The return of gingham is something we're already seeing
for spring, so pick up pieces you can wear now that will take you through
the next season. The menswear inspired plaids are also already showing up
on bloggers as we speak and will remain throughout the year. Think
oversized, relaxed blazers in a black and white check, long coats with
menswear detailing, the 90s power suit... you get the idea. Basically,
everything we shied away from in the early 2000s is making a comeback.
The androgynous patterns are great for now, like these pieces:


ONE  |  TWO  |  THREE


Gone are the days of skinny jeans and pencil pants. It's all about wide-leg 
trousers, relaxed boyfriend jeans, and high-waisted pants. 

Overall, I'd say we have something to look forward to. The feel of fashion
week was a return to elegance, but in a relaxed way. A refined form
of casual. 

Noticeably absent? Logos.
