About

Wearable Eco Friendly Fashion ♥

I spent the 90s and early 2000's growing up in the Philippines. That's where I first got interested in clothing. I'd spend hours at my Grandpa's office learning all about fashion + fabric. I saw all the work that went into a single garment and learned to appreciate it. From designing to sampling to sewing to production, I was exposed to everything and knew that every garment had a story.

As I graduated to High School, I took a more active role in learning about the production process. I started drawing and designing and eventually found my way into the more technical aspects of production. In college I started drafting my own patterns and sewing some of my own clothes.

Fast forward to New York, 2009 when I first stumbled upon Etsy. I immediately opened my first shop and started selling! When I made my first sale, I was ecstatic! Someone thought my work was good enough to pay for it! After 5 years in New York, I decided to move back to the Bay Area, where I am now currently based.

Several years after first finding Etsy, I'm still here! I take what I learned from my past and have used it to create my present. I sincerely hope you enjoy my designs and come back to visit my shop :)

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ PRODUCTION PROCESS ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

For the last several years, I've been sewing my designs myself. As I've gotten older and grown my business, I've realized this is not a sustainable practice. In the last year I've partnered with a small manufacturing studio in Manila, Philippines to help with my production. My team of 5 helps with the production of all new designs. If a design is made in the Philippines, you will see that info in the listing description. All others were made in California.

Thank you!

Frequently asked questions
Returns on all items

We definitely accept returns! Please note that boleros have a $10 restocking fee as of Nov. 1, 2017. Shipping charges are not refunded and shipping the items back for returns is at the buyers cost.

Please note that bulk listings and/or destash items are not refundable (store credit only).

Unclaimed International Packages

We've successfully shipped all over the world and are happy to ship to wherever you live! :) However, in the rare case your package gets returned to us as "unclaimed," we will have to charge a 25% restocking fee. If you decide to return your order after trying it on, then there is no restocking fee (exception: boleros & underwear). Please contact us for more details.

Sizing Guideline (For everything EXCEPT compression undies)

While we aim to provide a useful size chart to guide buyers in selecting their right size, all women are made differently! Please use this sizing chart along with your own judgements to help pick your best size:

Bust (NOT Bra Size); Waist; Hip in Inches
XS ----- 32, 28, 34
S ----- 34, 30, 36
M ----- 36, 32, 38
L ----- 38, 34, 40
XL ----- 40, 36, 42

Please note that many of our items have spandex and can therefore stretch to comfortably accommodate slightly different measurements then what is given above. However, our sizing does run smaller compared to big mall shops like Gap or Jcrew.
