Now is a better time than any for... linen! So many linen items in my shop this season and I’m excited to put you in all of it 🤗❤️ I don’t typically work too much with linen, which is odd because it’s hands down the most sustainable fabric in the world (next to cotton and silk). It uses the least amount of water, space, resources and man power to make. And has the least amount of steps going from a plant to being spun into fabric. But I’ve noticed a lot of retailers have suddenly been hyping up all these new supposed ethical, sustainable, organic fabrics... that are really just man-made from once natural materials. The worst part about it is they claim these fabrics are better alternatives to cotton and linen! 😂😂😂. That’s like saying juice is a better health alternative to water. Come on. For many people who don’t know anything about all the different fibre contents and origins of today’s textiles, this kind of miseducation can be really harmful. And though I’m actually a huge fan of juice and these new semi-organic fabrics (visit my shop site and you’ll see how much I love them) - I know exactly what they are, how they perform and just how much they impact the planet by being made. I love the drape of Rayon, I love that Bamboo never pills, and I love that if you put Spandex in anything, it fits better, and don’t get me started on my affair with Cupro - but if you want 100% natural sustainable fibers in your closet, don’t believe the hype of “eucalyptus” this and “bamboo” that. Linen, cotton and silk are the most natural, most sustainable materials you can put on your body. Period.
New Colors!!💙💖 Arrived at the shop today 🤗 Hot and vibrant for Summer! Some of my first designs, re-designed for the warmest months ahead. Lighter knits, brilliant hues, no sleeves, and that signature asymmetry that I love to see come to life when you slip it on. And go! Have fun shopping these two featured pieces and more new arrivals that just became available today. ❤️
The pieces I release in the shop are definitely reflective of the personal phases I go through in my work schedule. If I’m designing, I’m at home all the time, sitting at my computer or nesting in a big chair with all my sketches and patterns around me. I want to be cozy and soft, and I want to be able to fall asleep in what I wear because I’m too focused to change clothes at the end of the day. If I’m heading into my production phase, I’m always out, zooming all over town, roaming dark dusty warehouses and climbing over fabric. I want to wear fuss-free clothing that’s comfortable all day, looks good with sneakers and nothing that drapes. And when my evenings are free for dinner plans, I like to slip on something that already makes a statement (so that I don’t have to make the effort), looks a bit expensive, and also layerable because I typically walk home afterward. All these little daily life necessities that I personally need for my clothes is I think the reason why The Tiny Closet line is so wearable in general. You can travel in it, sleep in it, take it with you on vacation, conduct a board meeting, host a dinner party, and run all your errands in between. Just slip it on and go.
Look what just arrived for Summer! 🤩✨The Artist Range, a small collection of dresses and tops is now available to shop and I’m so excited! After celebrating my 36th birthday over the weekend, I’ll be honest, it was a hard one this year 😅🙃 I don’t know why...and the last thing I wanted to do was a spur of the moment photo shoot 🤨😝 of my newest pieces. This season, I designed these gems for comfort and luxurious ease - my consistent focus when making clothing for women. But wearing them through this photo shoot was total proof that if they could lift my spirits during a birthday weekend I did NOT want to celebrate, they could make any woman feel dynamite! 🧨 I felt absolutely fabulous! I felt like a force 🙌🏾 . It sounds odd to say it but clothing really can work miracles. So check out The Artist Range and if you want something super comfy and easy to throw on and slay, these may just do it for ya.✨👌🏾
The Nomad Wrap Dress in a new Spring shade is my favorite version since the original. And I have only 2 left! Of course I kept the sample to myself. Unlike a lot of greys that have too much black, green or yellow undertones, making our skin look drab and washed out, this grey is the perfect Spring hue, with blue and pink undertones - to quite possibly go with every shade of woman out there.
Highlights from my latest.... blog post! Available to read now at the shop 🥳 The Tiny Closet blog is the only reason I was even able to open a shop in the first place...and never be in the red! My amazing and supportive readers are now my shoppers 🙏🏽❤️ And while I work to make my line even better I do miss sharing all those rtw sentiments with the people who care to listen. So I am attempting to marry the two. Starting with showing how I’m wearing The Capsule for Spring 🥰🌷 It occurred to me that even though I wear my Capsule line everyday, I haven’t ever shared what that “daily Capsule life” looks like! Visit the shop to see my Tiny closet in action.
