JUNK IN THE TRUNK
And So it was time to get the show on the road again.
So this story starts the same way most of our stories start.
With a surplus of caffeine, consumed in the early morning in a very glamorous robe.
(all style, no substance is the mantra):
So we crammed the collection, the fruits of our labour in a big old bag
And arrived, at FLAT 128, the beautiful shop of our girl Liz, our host for the evening:
This is Liz:
In our Adam Jacket.
The Beautiful Carolina (her full name) in The Prince Coat
Jerry Hall much? Yes.
We did our thing.
With our Sweet Mama by our side
Who wore Indigo, naturally.
Cora in the Georgia Coat
Some of us sat on the floor and drank wine, which is mostly encouraged at our Trunk Shows. Its even better if you wear a hat while you do it. And Leopard.
HAPPY V DAY!
You wanna be our Valentine?
If you missed us this time, but want to get your hands on that stuff,
Say HEY HIPPIE

We must confess,
The last time we did a trunk show in New York was when we launched ourselves, very humbly, in our studio apartment five years ago.
Not much has changed, (We haven't aged a day) this Bohemia still not fancy,
but we thought it was time to swing into town and say hey to all our homeboys and homegirls:
See you Wednesday.
(We'll be the one in Native American dress in the corner, by the bar.)

Mondays are all about attitude.
You have to get your head in the right space so you can sell it for the rest of the week, baby.
And the only way through is to get the right attitude on a Dreadful Monday.
This hatred must be a boarding school hangover. W
hy do we fear them so? Its not like we have to go to an office.)
You can't let Monday creep up on you. Otherwise you'll be like this:
When you need to be like this:
Look at Margot, take a page from the book. She's like "Monday? Whatever. Hit me."
Thats what we're going for, k?
In order to get the attitude, you have to look at nice things.
It helps the good vibes flow. And thats how we power the bohemian bus:
good vibes, green juice and The Cure.
Lately we've been collecting pictures of Adam Ant. Total babeshow, with the most fantastic jackets.
He's been the inspiration for all of this ribbon sewing, military Bohemia moment.
On Mondays we usually need to be held, too.
And if there's no duck around to do the job, we'll take some camel to hug our thighs and warm our cynical bodies.
Basquiat, thank you for reminding us of the power of big hair and animal print.
This is the right costume for Monday, in case you were wondering. Its the only thing we can possible wear on this day:
With some painted antique Apache boots, of course:
(Its the only way we're going to feel empowered)
A circle of stars and a charming post card
And so another week begins.
Feel better? Us too.
The medication must be working.
We'll be here if you need us:
Are you coming to our show in New York?
Let us know if you're down to party baby:

MORE IS MORE
We're still high on outerwear and show no signs of coming down. Drink some cool-aid with us! We're continuing on this jacket trip.
Behold, the subject of our bender, the materials of our binge:
Embroidered placket and flanked with antique ribbons and things, we're going for Folksy: Hansel and Gretel go to stay with the Inuit.
Size Small, $550.00 USD
The Ladybug in progress:
(Same story, different day)
Size Medium $550.00
The Pineapple print ribbon, an homage to our Palm-beach loving Grandmother
(God rest her Pucci-loving soul)
The old girl's made from the softest quilted cotton in silver, with a quilted yolk flanked in cherry red.
With a lining that reminds us of some very upmarket chicken pox.
Size Medium $480.00
HORSE and HOUND
We took some stuffy old toile and paired it with remnants of an antique plaid dress mother had lying around.
Size Medium $450.00
(we're painfully aware of how are jackets are much cuter than our selfies)
Jester is made from some pretty badass paisley, and piped in turquoise.
Size Small-Medium, $450.00
so thats pretty much all you need to know.
Jester gets made:
(Inspired by a Wilde Child, we don't want to keep her in a closet)
Size Small $520.00
With dog lining, of course.
Size S/M $420.00
We were kind of vibe-ing with a little Frida-Diego action here; further feeding our love of INDIGO, and turquoise respectively, and adding upper arm bands with some serious ribbon.
Size Medium $480.00
(Because everyone looks better with jewelry, for real. Its the magpie effect)
Size Small, $550.00
We don't have anything clever to say about her. But she's bold enough to stand on her own, and she's not super interested in our peanut gallery commentary anyway.
We're going for Petit Prince meets Edie Sedgewick, get it?
She sold immediately through Instagram, but we'd think about making another.
This is the kind of midnight work which, without prescription medication or stimulants, pushes one over the edge:
But we've always like edges. All the fun people are partying on the other side.
