This is me, every single day in the new shop as I climb the long staircase up to this tucked away space and walk into my studio. Only, rather than sitting down to a baby grand, it’s an industrial sewing machine and each and every one of you are Wembly Stadium, day in and day out, for over fifteen years and it fuels me so much because I love doing this thing that I know sometimes appears to suck the living daylights out of me but, all the rest of the time, I am really fulfilled by the iterations on things like a perfectly placed bartack or useful pockets and seam construction to ensure longevity and how I can work all of those nuances of the design process into also talking about cocktail recipes, life rollercoasters and dinner party ideas. You all have watched me try a lot of things, bolstering me during the good times and the bad mistakes…I’ve definitely made a few. Jeeezzzusss sorry, I literally cannot help myself. I watched Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury and I just keep sliding those puns in everywhere. My point is, I have became very aware that my personal daily style is very Freddie. Tank top and jeans for evvver. Plus the perfect tote bag 😉Now that the events of the last few months have settled a bit, I’ve been able to acknowledge and process the decisions I made to try and get things where they needed to be for phase two of this big hairy audacious Seattle move (did I make the right decision?? did I just sound like Queen again??), either way, my brain space has finally opened up to allow for things like CREATIVE PROCESS. Which just means, new things are on the way. In the meantime, our first ever end of season sale is happening now. Get the perfect bag for your jeans and tank top lifestyle, before these options are gone for good and you have to wear fourteen layers in order to survive a damp cold winter.
Also, I’m in need of a haircut and feeling a strong Freddie energy, desiring a more polished look for winter. Should I do it??!! I dunno. I might just be spending too much time alone. But you should get a Fruitsnack Fanny Pack before they’re gone.
