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 :)

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ CREATIVE PROCESS ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

My shop focuses in ready to wear, ready to ship clothing. When I have a design in mind, I go all in and produce several quantities of it. In a small studio space, it is much more efficient to do everything in bulk.

I also know how exciting it is to order an item online and receive it just a few days later. In addition to production efficiency, this feeling is also why I produce all of my designs in batches. Within about 3-5 days of your placing your order, your new clothes are in the mail and flying out to their new home!

I believe it's important to care for the one Earth we have, so you'll find that many of my items are made with eco friendly fabrics (certified and sourced from China). I also source other fabrics and trims from the fashion district in LA, a handful of local San Francisco shops and Etsy.

Sometimes during the year, you may find that my shop is on vacation mode. This means either one of a few things. (1) I'm actually on vacation! Woo Hoo! Or, more likely, (2) I'm on a fabric sourcing trip or (3) Working on my production and building up my inventory. I work, dream and play on Etsy though, so you'll always be able to get in touch with me!

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.
