As some of you may know, my brand’s motto is “future heirlooms”; as such, I am really looking forward to reading the above book. I have some thoughts on this topic already, but am eager to read what I hope to be well-researched, articulate explanations to my questions. Here’s some more info about this book.

I’m in the studio. I’m really happy these days, designing, making patterns, making muslins, having fittings, making new things for my stores (the brick and mortar space in Sausalito and, working on a very cool eveningwear collaboration.

I am not out and about these days. I’m not showing, I’m not shooting (much), I’m not schmoozing, I’m not partying. You can generally measure how much I’ve sequestered myself in the studio by how much I’ve let my eyebrows grow out. (I’m about to borrow the Mr.’s beard trimmer.)

I’m not teaching this summer, but it looks like they’ll ask me back for the fall. I miss teaching.

I’m enjoying not hearing myself talk. I’m enjoying some quality time with the Mr. and getting sleep and taking walks around the lake and watching Korean dramas online. But mostly, I’m working on all of my favorite things. I’ll see y’all soon(ish).
