Charleston Fashion Week 2013 has begun! Since I didn’t make it to the opening night, I’m looking at some photos from last night’s shows and this one struck me hard! I can’t even see the whole looks and I’m already in love with this emerging designer’s aesthetic (are those hand painted brush strokes??)….don’t know who this is yet, but I will find out. SO excited to be at the tents tonight for the live action!

My students helped to put on an amazing show last night at The Art Institute to highlight our new Fashion Design program. I showed a small Clewis Reid collection; mostly older styles but two new pieces in the mix. The new styles are sheer cover-ups featuring hand painted black polka dots on white cotton/silk voile and accented with climbing rope cording which gives a fun pop of color! Also showed some new bold statement necklaces….these will be for sale on the site soon.


um, yes. seen here.

A new product I’ve added to the Clewis Reid online shop: Feather Mobiles! I made one of these for Miles and have since gotten so many sweet compliments that I’ve decided to make them available for sale. So pretty but also serves its purpose well: he seriously LOVES gazing at it. Colors are customizeable…shop here.

My little chicken is 4 weeks old today! He loves eating, looking at his black and white mobile, being outside, and baths with his Mama. Happy Birthday, Miles!!!

These rings by Conroy & Wilcox are the coolest modern take on a classic gold signet ring…and also have the slightly imperfect/handmade feel that I am always drawn to. Would look good stacked, or possibly engraved with initials ;)


A BABY BLESSING

What a beautiful night. We gathered during the peak of a glowing sunset at a dock house on the backside of the island. We ate and laughed, and each of my friends and sisters brought flowers, quotes, poems, and blessings for me and my baby, both celebrating my rite of passage into motherhood and welcoming my baby into his new world. Uplifting, strengthening, emotional, and just so so sweet. I am so grateful for these dear people in my life.

"She is a friend of mind.  She gather me, man.  The pieces I am, she gather them and give them back to me in all the right order.  It’s good, you know, when you got a woman who is a friend of your mind." ~Toni Morrison, Beloved


At 37 weeks and 3 days, this guy is officially full term! Now just waiting for him to decide when to make his appearance…Early bird? Right on time?….Most likely with these genes he will be on the extreme side of fashionably LATE! Either way we are getting so excited and I can’t wait to
hold him and see his sweet face.

I love these portraits of ladies by Ryan Pickart. He reminds me a lot of a modern day Egon Schiele.
