Snapshots

A couple of snaps from the last couple of days:

Fern & glass ball in the sunroom, morning light

Cicada husk found on our morning walk. It's that time of the year, they seem to be everywhere

Inspirations

A few years back I went to an exhibit of Vivienne Westwood’s work at the DeYoung Museum in San Francisco. It was during a period where I was working 12 hours a day, 7 days a week at two jobs, and I was creatively, spiritually and intellectually drained. Seeing her clothes was like drinking a metaphysical cup of coffee.

Expertly crafted, sumptuous, always edgy and seemingly endlessly creative.

Afterwards I bought this book, and though it doesn’t include my favorite pieces from the San Francisco show, I still turn to it when I’m designing.

‘shrooms

I have a new  morning routine.

After pouring myself a cup of coffee, I head out to the backyard, and hunt for mushrooms. Turns out the big toadstool I found a couple of months ago was the front runner of a tidal wave of fungi. Since there are several varieties of poisonous mushrooms in North Carolina, and since my dog will, like a goat, eat anything (including glass, I kid you not) I’m taking a scorched earth approach and pulling up every one I can find.

I find about a pound a day, and this morning I found a monster that must have (and I’m not exaggerating here either) have weighed a half pound on it’s own. They are lovely to look at though aren’t they?

Inspirations

Years ago, when Ursula and I were in New York selling a modaspia collection, we walked into a teeny space in the lower east side; the retail store of Zero, designed by Maria Cornejo. Ursula was a fan, and we spent a few minutes looking at the interesting silhouettes and gorgeous fabrics. When Ursula mentioned her line again in a recent blog post, I looked up Maria’s website, and was completely blown away.  She’s definitely the expert in how to do the peplum skirt I’ve been playing around with lately. And the fabrics….drool!

Happy Wednesday!

Happy Wednesday!

Both stores are open again, with the summer favorites available in new fabrics, and great fall pieces like the Ellipse skirt restocked.

Another piece of news: because I sell directly to my customers I am able to keep my prices a little lower than standard retail. But I recently realized that in order to keep Judah Ross growing, I will need to sell my work to stores as well. It was a hard decision to make, but I will be raising some of my prices in September. I will continue to offer a few special pieces just for my online shops.

So to say a big fat “thank you!!” to all of you who support (and I hope will continue to support) my retail business, I am offering 15% off all ready to ship items in my shop.

Just enter the code HAPPYWEDNESDAY when checking out.

The sale does not apply to made to order items, and will end August 15th. So get crackin’!!

Stella and our new foster dog Dakota like each other.

He’s so petite he makes our tiny Stella look beefy.
