A big thank you

Thanks to everyone who came out for the Stripe Holiday Trunk Show! It was a super fun day and a pleasure to get to know some of Santa Cruz’s finest. I got to talk to so many awesome people, and I even learned how to tie a bow tie. Thank you for supporting me and local businesses!





If you missed the show, have no fear – you can swing by Stripe Men to pick up one of my uber-classy, handmade bow ties!

Top notch gifting: Stripe Holiday Trunk Show Dec.15

Me: “What are you doing on Saturday, December 15?”
You: “Oh some stuff, nothing too important, why?”
Me: “Well, you should come to the Stripe Holiday Trunk Show. It’s all day at the shop (107 Walnut Street). There will be five local Santa Cruz designers there (including yours truly) offering exclusive holiday gifts and limited edition items.”
You: “Wouldn’t miss it for the world.”
Me: “Thank, you’re the best friend a gal could ask for.”

Sometimes it’s hard to give someone a $240 fitted dress as a gift (but not impossible!). To address this and provide more affordable and gift-friendly items, I’ve been busy making one-of-a-kind hair clips and clutches. All fabric used in production is either locally purchased or vintage (with the exception of the wax print fabric from Africa – which came from Africa).

Here’s a sneak peak at some of my items….
