Today was a crafty kind of day.  I took reclaimed vintage wood from historic landmark "Acres of Books" on W. 3rd St in DTLB, painted it the same color as some of my design studio walls, glued fave cropped zine tears, used black satin twine and metal studs and created wall art for my design studio.   The first of more to come...

Neck Wear Inspiration

Although it's beginning to feel like Spring here in Long Beach, CA, we are in the planning stages for a new category that may read more Fall/Holiday 2017 : Chic Neck Wear


 It's time to expand our offerings
and neck wear was the obvious choice, 
a nice compliment to our bow-ties.
There's something about neck wear 
that really completes an outfit, 
 like the right pair of shoes.  

We've been experimenting
  and embellishing shirt collars, designing tie necklaces, neck tubes, and tipping collar points.  The possibilities are endless and we are very inspired!

Adorning our necklines can be empowering and can spark up a good conversation, whether at a cocktail party, wedding, girl's night out, casual business meeting, social gathering, and of course a first date!

       "Respect Mother Nature and her animal inhabitants."
