I have so much to tell you about my new Collection … about SCB’s Collection (this is my favorite) … about the Found Collection (I am sad to see these go) and the new Q9 but for today I only have time to show you a few quick photographs of little old me!

I’m really proud of my fun little pieces in Beauty & Use III. They are basics that require participation from you. You have to mix in your own personal style to make them special. You’re the beauty and they are the use!

My pick for “favorite Smock” this time around is Smock No. 7 (or at least that’s how I’m feeling on this fine Friday). I’ve been layering my Smocks with tank tops or long-sleeved tops underneath. Here I went with a turtleneck and chunky necklace. I’ve been super cozy all day.

Above is how I’ve been wearing my Wovens No. 1 and No. 2. I worked alongside a wonderful artists group in Thailand to create these handwoven scarves (they did everything from grown the cotton to weave it) and am so happy with them. They are delicate but not precious. I’m really into the fact that they arrive stiff and loosen within a few wearings (the indigo takes a bit longer … like jeans); you have to break them in! And once you do … wow … they feel so good and natural. They are the kinds of pieces that will last forever and I plan to keep mine that long.

And lastly my Knits No. 1 and No. 2. I have to say I’ve been having a hard time taking these off. The cotton is amazing! One can see why organic is better in cases like these. I do double up my No. 1 but mostly wear it down around my neck long. It’s like a necklace! As for No. 2, it’s a nice size to help out as a hood so I have been tucking it into my coat as seen here.

Special thanks to RTS for help with the snaps!
