Feeling Bleu.

Hot days and cool blues. Blue is a nice place to rest your eyes on a sunny day. Feast your eyes and your wardrobe with a visit to The Westport Farmer's Market this Thursday- Local Artists Day!
Over sized Silk Gauze shawls, crinkled silk skinny scarves dyed with indigo and logwood purple are a good way to keep those harmful rays from burning your shoulders.

Vagabond's Niece.

My great-niece Mia came to stay for a week and left with an indigo dyed wardrobe and blue hair... You think her folks will let her back?

All washed out.

My new favorite blog for inspiration, Free People, validated my passion for these scarves I have made with a more faded or "washed out" feeling. These tones have a cooling affect and work well with very fair skin tones, and really pop with a bit of a tan.

My Art Director.

Tonya Clinton has been the creative force behind many an ad campaign. She has worked for Victoria's Secrets, Dress Barn, and several ad agencies here in NYC. She was kind enough to design my logo, business card, and hang tags. She loves her scarves and has been a huge support! Thank you, Tonya. You rock, and you are rockin' that Vagabond's Daughter scarf!

Orange Crush.

I have a crush on this dress and the delicious color of that silk! I this I will try making this with my orange madder and Quebracho Red dyed silk panels.

Camisole, a la carte!

This separate can mix with anything! Ombre dyed with Logwood Gray from the Dominican Republic.

Gray and Blue Blocking.

Chanel does it well! Super chic and elegant, works at the office, as well as it goes with denim, black and white and every shade in between. This is a CHANEL inspired gray Italian silk chiffon scarf dyed with Logwood Gray and Indigo.

Vagabond loot.

A trip to Maine to visit mom always includes a junket to the antique and thrift shops around Damariscotta. These treasures are great accents for the Vagabond House and some are what I'll need for my next big trip. The matching vintage Samsonite suitcases are necessary for my imagined trip on the Orient Express. The smallest overnight case, or as dad would say "valise", will work for hopping the next freight train for the weekend- destination unknown!

It's nude to me.

This Italian silk organza scarf is as soft and fair as a bare shoulder. Shibori technique was used to create the smokey gray design on the peachy skin tone canvas. This piece whispers grace and elegance. Hush.
