I was seduced by this picture:
I wanted her life! Oh, to look like her, wear her clothes, live in her house and have her job. White hens roaming around while I sip champagne, looking pretty in my party dress? Yes, baby, bring it on. I actually forgot that I always associated farmyard fowl with the (ahem) droppings, they inevitably leave behind. There is nothing that the glass of bubbly combined with pretty frock (or leopard coat) cannot fix! And how about this handsome hubby of hers (and business partner), masculine looking dude, wearing huge flower pins while tending to the lettuce? Total meltdown. Now, my urban variety hubby is not bad looking, smart, caring and metrosexual, but huge flower pins?! I always had a soft spot for tough guys with their feminine side peeking through. You can laugh, but I had a crush on Bruce Willis in the 90's...
"The biggest influences are my favorite era’s for womens fashion, not to mention social and political change for women: the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. great combinations of sexy and classic for formal and casual. Powerful women doing powerful things. These three era’s encompass so many incredible options, and Woman want to look good and have options!
I design pieces I want in my own closet depending on the woman I need to be that day. We all have so many sides to our personality, so many things we can do, lives we are made to live, characters we are in different moments.
I am designing for all of those. It’s the transformative power of clothes that I’ve always loved, the story we tell. Open your closet and choose your destiny. Bang Your Drum"

I love her fashion philosophy, it makes me even more excited about the line. Her clothes really speak to me, modern classic, simple and feminine, but chic and sexy at the same time.
I love so many pieces from her Spring 2012 line. The clothes are not cheap but the design is timless they made in US from natural fabric.
But since my budget is limited, I could only afford to order couple of items, so I went back to The List (of things I need this year), and decided that I would try this skirt:
|2 Button Skirt - Tiny Navy PinStripe|
|With perfect fit button sleeve|
|With linen perfect shirt|
My other purchase was from their 'ends', leftovers from previous season. You cannot return it but you can get store credit or exchange. I actually ordered it first to test the brand since it wasn't so expensive and I thought I would use a credit towards the skirt, if I have to.
They had a whole line of those blouses in different colors but I actually need a black blouse that can double as a party top which I was lacking.
|Same blouse in blue, you can see the pleating and puff sleeves|
|Cute little button in the back|
|Little daring for going out|
|Plain and easy|
|Love the silhouette!|
|That's all folks|
I will probably buy more from them, I am lusting after the raspberry striped skirt, but I need to save up first.
