Fall 'O9......The Olivia Collection Remake

One of my personal favorites last Spring/Summer was the Olivia dress. It was inspired by my friend's daughter who is all things sweet, girly and tough all wrapped up in one little body. Upon arriving in Texas, she immediately got her cowgirl boots. The dress was a popular one for me and a great reflection of my world. It showcases my Texas roots with the southern touch in the cowhide print so plan to see many renditions of this re-done as the seasons change and the years come and go. Here's a look at the new Olivia collection for Fall '09. These new designs will be hitting my Etsy store soon in July. This time, the dress has a mate. If you have girls you love to coordinate or you just have a little lady who loves wearing skirts, this time you've got another choice. I love the photo we captured here. I had the pleasure of working with Michelle of Michelle Nicoloff photography. She lent her talent and did these amazing photos for me. Thank you Michelle and we wish you well on your journey back west to California!!

A peek at Fall........the Bella Collection

It might be 110 with the heat index here in Texas but my brave little soldiers went out there and took photos for me like pros. Here's one of my favorite shots of the girls wearing pieces from the soon to be listed Bella line. I've long since been a fan of Jennifer Paganelli from Sis Boom. She always comes out with the most gorgeous and feminine fabrics. I loved this black patterned fabic with the ice blue background and knew it'd be a part of my Fall line. This will be part of my lineup for the Austin Fashion Week that will be coming up in 3 weeks here in the Capital of Texas! Stay tuned, I'll be posting more sneak peeks!

They're giving away a design rising star award as well, so if you feel inclined, click HERE and vote :-)

Happy Birthday to my little guy!

Had to take some time out to celebrate with the family for my youngest one's birthday today. Not long ago he was just telling me, "Mommy, I'm never gonna get 4" I was secretly praying, he'd stay 3 forever! Well, it finally got here. He woke me up bright and early and just had a happy day with his family. Schedules have been a bit off so we're waiting til July to do an official celebration but that's the beauty of this age, he was truly happy in the moment. What a great day!

Late Summer Arrival.....Butterfly Garden

I've had this fabric forever and just finally got around to cutting into it and think this would be a lovely addition to the Summer wardrobe. I love halters, love seeing their sweet little shoulders and backs. I just sent this one over to Etsy today. Thank you Hannah for obliging and taking a few photos for me. Such a sweet face! I was so glad when you flew into town you happened to have packed some pink Butterfly embellished crocs. I guess this photo was meant to be :-)
