First "big bike" riding lesson!


The Trumbos

This precious creature is Miss Ella Fritzgerald, part of the beautiful family of Isaac and Beck Trumbo.
An amazing photographer and model/stylist duo, of whom I've had the great pleasure and fortune of
reconnecting with (thank you, Facebook) Isaac shot my current women's collection on Beck, which
just went up on our new site: leathertongue.net

This couple makes such a creative and talented team, I literally just sent them the clothing. They
did everything else, and it turned out just like I wanted....AMAZING!!! Hanging out with them again
was as if no time had passed (even though it had been 10 years) Devon LOVED them so much that
she shed big tears when we parted ways. Hope to see them again soon:)


Making lists...

 It's VERY cold in SF right now, so we haven't been out of the house all weekend and I've been making lists,
 all kinds of lists...lists of what I'm sewing this week, and what I'm finishing by the end of the month.
 Lists of how many children's pieces/ verses women's pieces/ verses private client work I'm doing over
 the next three months. Lists of what I want to buy for who for Christmas, and lists of what I want to do
 by when with the website.

 I always get very "listy" around the end of the year, and the list I'm most excited about right now is the list
 of what I want to do for vacations! The idea for our first vacation came to me while I was trying to figure
 out locations to shoot the new childrens line on Devon. I wanted us to rent a car and just drive along
 the coast, shooting where we felt like it and staying in some quaint little bed and breakfast along the way.
 The line will be ready to shoot by end of February (which just so happens to be our 10 year wedding
 anniversary) So this year we'll be shooting Devon's Spring 2014 line in Bodega Bay: riding horses, sailing,
 and most certainly at the old Potter Schoolhouse (from Alfred Hitchcock's movie "The Birds") equal parts
 romantic and eerie.


Black Friday Finds

new shoes 6 (2)

final zara new

 I wasn't going to be any part of the craziness of Black Friday (except for the fact that I had to work)
 and we had our first big sale ever on that day at Britex. I was chosen to hand out sale flyers in
 Union Square. It was the first and last time I'll ever do anything like that again. It's very interesting
 how people treat you when you walk up to them with a flyer, it's like you have leprosy or something!

 Anyways, I really didn't need anything new for myself, but I couldn't resist walking by Zara on the
 way home....they always have the cutest things for kids:)
