    small batch

    That’s what we do: small batch, carefully curated. Celebs shop with us, but we don’t name names, because we don’t sell our mailing list, all of our relationships are personal and private.  The paparazzi has stalked folks more than once and it makes us crazy.  And, we did use one of those pics once because, well, becauseRead more…

    Did Someone Say “Classic”?

    Diane Von Furstenberg started a revolution back in the 70’s with her wrap dress.  Why?  Because it fit and flattered all women.
