  • Brokedown Palace

    I have driven past this lovely ghost of a home so many times.  It sits slightly uphill of a curve in the road.  Paint peeling, vines growing on and through the windows.  I have always wanted to stop and take a better look.  

    On one of those drives through Swan Valley, my daughter mentioned that see too has always wanted to stop.   So I pulled through the curve and down the dirt road right up to the house.  It was just as I thought.  Beautifully worn and ghostly.   We took photos, the light was beautiful. 

    Inspired, I told the ladies, "We are going on a field trip". We packed up my car with our favorite clothes, hats, and jewelry and set off for Brokedown Palace. The views were stunning, the light was amazing and our crew had a great time.  Sometimes, you just have to stop and take that dirt road.

  • Film and Fashion

    One benefit of small town living is that your customers become your friends. We were  in the shop chatting about some of our favorite films and how they make visual impressions that  inspire fashion and architecture.  Several films were discussed and I mentioned  how the Danish Girl enthralled me.  The costumes, interiors, scenery, and story were so captivating.  We could have talked at length about our favorite movies and we might still over a glass of wine or two.

    We put together a few pieces from our current collections that reflect that time, feeling and romance. Representing the mood are Hazel Brown, Place Nationale, and Pas De Calais.
