“I have always been into fashion. When I was a kid, my mom would often find me reading Vogue, Glamour, or Seventeen. I would study the pictures and pay attention to the fashion trends and designers. I became very familiar with all the designers, Diane von Furstenberg, Giorgio Armani, Ralph Lauren and Carolina Herrera were some of my favorites.”Read More

I’m proud to say that I was born and raised in Sun Valley! Ironically, I don’t have formal sewing training. I grew up with hand-me-downs or clothes that didn’t fit well, so I spent time altering my own clothes / making clothes. When my kids were younger, I made a majority of their clothes. I’ve also been quilting for as long as I can remember.Read More
Fall is my favorite time of year. It’s an opportunity to push my reset button. Thing start slowing down as the days get shorter. The cooler temps mean there are less people in town, the trails are quieter (less dusty!), and we get to sit by the fire in the evenings — my very favorite part of the day.Read More
For most of us women, the handbag is the ultimate 21st-century statement piece.
