Frockin' around the Christmas tree....

Trunk show at Frock and Frill was frocking amazing!

Lady Ledbetter Dip 'n' Sip.

This bride doesn't have the pre wedding 'blues"! Radiant and super stylish bride to be, Megan, got in up to her elbows to make her wedding reception the best it could be. Putting her own twist on things, she decided to dip dye her napkins for the wedding reception. What a grand idea! The snow kept a few people away, but we managed just fine without them... Thank you to sister Lauren and Aunt Barbara for braving the elements (and I95)!
I am so honored to be a part of the prep.

                                                             Can't wait for the big day!

We've got "Radiant Orchid" covered...

Pantone's 2014 color of the year: Radiant Orchid!
Yes, we have it.

Vagabond spottings.

Trunk shows a plenty this month! Three last week. Thank you to all who helped clean out my inventory- now, back to work before the next crop. This Saturday I will be hosting a Dip 'n' Sip party in my studio for a lovely bride to be and her girlfriends. Also putting the finishing touches on the men's Spring 2014 collection for Onassis. Then, more trunk shows... good thing I have my share of trunks!

Getting ready for Beds.

I was approached by a bedding shop, The Clean Bedroom Store, to create a bedding line dyed with natural plant extracts. This seemed like a natural progression for Vagabond's Daughter, and they are naturally stunning. I wasn't able to produce in large quantities, but the result is one of a kind duvet covers made with organic linen from Near Sea Naturals, dyed with all natural plant extracts, and throw pillows in organic cotton and silk velvet. All inquiries about orders and wholesale prices should be sent to Vagabond's Daughter at <>.

Terrain Pennant Workshop Results.

Terrain in Westport proved to be the best place to be last Saturday. The cool, shady interior of this beautiful destination store was a nice place to be on a 90+ degree day last weekend. The workshop was a great success- in fact we will have another in August. Date to be determined.

The power of doing pennants.

This Pendleton plaid puts a punch of power in this pennant.... Pow!
Thanks, Bee and Mason. Maybe this will attract some more participants for this Saturdays workshop at Terrain in Westport.

Always inspired by the ''Ultimate Vagabond'', my dad, I have designed a series of scarves for men. Loosely woven linen and silk and linen, dyed with madder root, iron, pomegranate and indigo.

Fishing for a look.

I have been searching high and low for this nauti- net look for my summer scarves. Linen and linen/silk blend netting dye beautifully with madder root, indigo, and pomegranate with iron. All on Etsy until they got retail.
