I am a Pittsburgh native, avid seamstress, and amateur everything else! I am also a former Clarissa School of Fashion Design student, and I have been sewing and designing for more than 20 years. Happily my designs have been featured in The Boston Bay-State Banner, The New Pittsburgh Courier, The Pittsburgh Press, on TheRoot.com, the KDKA Morning Show and Pittsburgh Fashion Week.
I’ve always adored the look of Hollywood starlets in old black and white movies and admired my grandmothers in their hats and gloves every Sunday morning. Several years ago I began collecting vintage pieces for my personal collection and uncovered far more pieces than I could actually wear myself. I decided to open my own shop to showcase the wonderful treasures I come across in my day-to-day adventures.
