    Hi, Everybody!

    I bet you didn't expect to hear from us again so soon, but even a little bit of good stuff is nice to share.

    I had a birthday this week, and Kati surprised me with one of my ItemZ orders. Now that is a birthday gift I did not expect, and it sure was a great surprise!

    These jackets are all one size and the perfect thing for the fall weather as it gets chilly.

    I love the colors in this whimsical print! You know where the flowers come from.

    I love this coat in the colorful print. It has elastic gathered pockets in the front.

    I have some really nice big scarves from France that look perfect with fall and winter coats.

    The jacket in black with a pale silver print works for everybody! I have a felted flower scarf with this one.

    Kati and I ran into Los Angeles designer David Galan on our last trip to Los Angeles. I really love his bags and always have a hard time choosing just a few.

    This is a very dark brown leather tote bag with metallic leather trim,. David just uses the nicest, softest leathers and makes all of his bags locally. Wait until you see what I have coming from him in the spring!

    This and lots of other cool stuff is waiting for you in my shop! Come see me in Suite 220 or call me for a treat 415-362-3436.

    See you!

    It is a bit difficult to get my head into writing a newsletter when Paris is so much on my mind..... and all of the people injured in the horrific tour bus crash on the block next to mine...... We can only pray.... and hope.... and see the best in one another....

    So, I decided to give my first little nod to France with my new knee socks that are designed in France and made in Italy. I like that they keep it all in Europe.... I am always changing up my sock collections to bring you new and pretty ones!

    This is the beginning of my little shoe department (See the new French socks there too?). I will be getting more styles soon.... maybe this week!

    New pretty Krista pieces are coming every week.... TWICE last week.... so checking Facebook to see it all is a good thing.....

    This is the newest butterfly.... the silk organza Umbrella Slip that can be worn as many ways as your imagination goes!!! Here I have it over a black cotton/silk satin Underpinning Skirt with a nickel/black stripe cotton broadcloth Flower Vest. Three great pieces to mix....

     photo DSCN7828_zpsqlxkm7oh.jpg

    The Princess of Overkill just loves this outfit (and watch me add something else too....).....

    Taking it from the top, we have the nickel/black wide stripe silk taffeta Smashed Cami with FABULOUS buttons over a Laser Cut Sequin Stretch Tulle Tee over a nickel velvet Pinwheel Cami over a butterfly print silk organza overlay Short Pastry Slip OVER a black silk organza Underpinning Skirt. WHEW!!!!! And then I added an Irina Staricov silk flower pin with a beaded center to keep it from being too plain....

    .... and then one can add the Gossamer Shawl..... a textured silk confection with sequins!!!

     photo DSCN7838_zpszu2b8kzp.jpg

    ....Keeping it simpler is elegant.... The Laser Cut Sequin Stretch Tulle is a really, REALLY pretty shirt. Here it is the first layer under the Long Underpinning Slip that has an overlay of polka dot silk organza that is wonderfully stiff and sticky outie..... and then there is the yummy nickel velvet Pinwheel Cami. The pearl and zircon necklace is from Bay Area artist Alicia Van Fleteren, and the leather with stones is by Christie Lea Payne

    Simplicity and elegance strike again!!!! This time the wide stripe silk taffeta Smashed Cami is layered with a Single Layer Stretch Tulle Tee and nickel Silk taffeta Spring Pants.... and finished off with the sequined Gossamer Shawl.

    This Krista Larson plaid so works for everyone!!!! My friend Monique's adorable Coco....she wouldn't lie to anyone!

     photo DSCN7815_zpsygoml1a1.jpg

    The cardinal/nickel plaid cotton flannel makes the perfect Long Pinwheel Slip.... here over black linen Athletic Pants and a Double Layer Stretch Tulle Tee..... and a fluffy Dandelion Flower Pin.....

    .... or you can add flowers of a different sort....

    The same underprices with the Flower Vest as the show-stopper!

    Now I am going to "paint" a pretty picture with Krista Larson and Magnolia Pearl....

    I am starting out with the Krista oat Bubble Stretch Tulle Tee and her cream sequined stripe silk taffeta Umbrella Slip..... under it is the Magnolia Pearl Plantation stripe Kahlo Skirt andover it is the fabulously ADORABLE mink cotton and velvet Valentina Cropped Layering Tank..... all cotton lace and velvet....YUM! With it is the luster of the baroque pearl and zircon pendant by Alicia Van Fleteren combined with a mixed metal, stone, and pearl rope from Love Heals.

    I have so MANY fabulous pieces of Magnolia Pearl that I could be making outfits for days....

    Here the alabaster cotton and velvet Good Bones Jacket (with really beautiful lace and mending) tops the Frida dot Maja Dress (with more rows of cotton lace!) ..... and for that touch of whimsy - the America stripe cotton Sid Pants peek out the bottom. And of course, a red flower pin never hurt anything!

     photo DSCN7840_zpsmcril6e6.jpg

    I am really loving all of the Magnolia Pearl little layering pieces.....

    The Leila Olive Mae Cropped Layering tank is all abut tulle and lace and silk ribbon.... such a perfect foil for the French vanilla James Dean T with lots of holes and mending. I have it with Izzy Roselinni polka dot Sid Pants an the Shadow Good Bones Jacket.

    There is so much MP to play with that you could be here for HOURS!!!!!
