Design Sponge Santa Cruz City Guide


So stoked to be mentioned in this Santa Cruz City Guide on Design Sponge! This in-depth guide provides great information for locals and travelers alike on the best places to shop, restaurants to eat at, and activities to explore in Santa Cruz.

Some of my Santa Cruz musts include shopping at Stripe Design Group (duh!) and Cameron Marks, grabbing coffee and a chocolate croissant at Verve Coffee Roasters, enjoying a delicious Italian dinner at Lillian’s (including at cocktail at The Crepe Place down the street while you wait for your table), and a nice walk or bike ride along West Cliff Ave.

You can read the full guide here.

Shift dresses for all

Shift dresses are the best. They are comfortable, chic, fit a range of sizes, and can be worn in a variety of ways (through every season!).

This spring I will be making lots of shift dresses. Here’s the first, now on sale at Stripe for $168. It’s handmade by yours truly using 100% silk fabric.

If you do not live in the area and are interested in purchasing this dress or have an idea for a shift dress of your own, feel free to contact me directly at Believe me when I say I love discussing dresses.
