When I tell You that I LOVE This Shrug.... that's an understatement. I wore it Sunday and received more compliments, than I could count. It looked FABULOUS with my Black Jersey Dress. Thank You SB for a definite "Conversation Piece!"

About

Effortless, unique handcrafted couture

When I was 16, I asked my mother for a sewing machine. Instead, she bought me a computer.:) I entered college as a computer science major and graduated with a marketing degree. I was disappointed in the choices for women in the plus-size market so in 2001, I purchased my first sewing machine for my 21st birthday. With the knowledge I gained in my 8th grade home economics class, I began creating and wearing my own designs.

In 2002, due to a friends insistence I began to sew for others. After building a career in corporate America, and sewing in my free time, I decided to further my knowledge, so in 2008 , I was accepted in the Master of Fine arts program, at Savannah College of Art and Design.

I started my shop to be able to provide women with an option to be different. I like using unconventional materials, recycled, you name it! I design clothing that is comfortable, versatile, and allows you to hide your imperfection without being obvious. (I like to call it the David Blaine effect)

You don't have to be weird to be different. I like to create "that thing" that will make people stop and stare. I believe everyone should be the "best you...you can be" With all the knock-offs available these days, I wanted to give women the option to be different and special, without the "fake it, until you make" under tone.
