A reminder for those times when we get lost in the music/colors/endless racks of clothes

FOREVER 21/ZARA

If you must shop there
For rompers and belts and tops
Think of bloody sweat

A dress for ten bucks!
Is the industrial plea
For you to forget

That shit is heinous
Fits you weird and won’t stay nice
Rips in the laundry

Fast fashion feels gross
It’s not high and it’s not low
It’s just middlebrow

Fabric, Fabric Everywhere…

I’ve just picked out a fresh batch of brightly colored fabric to make spring dresses. Take a look and let me know what you think – what you like/dislike/passionately love or hate.

If you do spot a particular fabric you love, email me (sallyesposito@gmail.com) and we can make a bespoke, custom dress perfectly fit for you. But keep in mind the sooner the better – these sheets of fabric will soon be made into ready-to-wear dresses (that may not be your size!).

Additionally, I’ll be introducing a new style of dress into this season’s collection. Think fitted bodice and flared bottom.

Onward!

Let’s slow down for a second and pay attention to the details, the textures. Let’s create something the old fashioned way – with thought, with care. Let’s choose quality over quantity. Let’s use our minds and our imaginations and our hands to make something honest.

When we do this, we build a story. Each garment is designed and created this way. My hope is that every piece becomes a treasure to be admired and worn for years to come.
