Barton Springs shoot

Barton springs provided the perfect backdrop for a few scarf shots.

Anne used hers Sarong-style for a quick dip in the springs.

I'm excited to wear my Bleached version with one of Jennys gorgeous new knit hats for fall!

Austin print inspiration

I love vintage and antique shops, fact. I'm a little bit obsessed with the 40's and 50's and the printed textiles of that era. I scour ebay and vintage markets for new print inspiration and also for any great dresses (ideally with a waist that will fit!) to add to the archives.

My target is for two new print designs a day, so you can imagine how quickly I run out of ideas! Working alongside some truly talented people, visiting museums, flee markets, books and travel are just some of the sources that help me to keep making!

The Rose bowl in LA is a favorite but Austin, Texas has to be one of my top spots so far for amazing vintage stores. I was lucky enough to be part of the Dobbin mews entourage who were making a trip to Austin for a trunk show at the beautiful Spartan store. Thanks for having me along ladies!
