The Calling of the Artist

Ukrainian Seamstress Tailor Mary Grace Godfrey

The best things in life uplift us. I am not talking about elevators when we need to get to the top floor, (although that is nice). Rather I am talking about lifting our spirits as we go about our day-to-day activities. This is the role of the artist, who “give us enthusiasm to do our work” as St. John Paul II said in his famous Letter to Artists. Beauty speaks to our hearts like nothing else, for it promises something that we are all seeking – happiness. However this does not always result in a promise fulfilled. We are all aware that beauty can be deceptive when it is only...

Back to Our Roots with 80’s Fashion & Boyfriend Style Cashmere Jackets

Boyfriend Style 80s Blazer Sports Jacket

Back to our Roots Those of us born in the 80’s likely feel a strong attachment to the decade. And just as we who lean on our mothers for support as we become mothers ourselves might begin to resemble them, we who have added Adidas Originals to our wardrobes are also dressing like them too. Especially in our family where my father, who played professional football, had a shoe contract with Adidas. He was always bringing home interesting new things for us to wear.

Matching Champagne Wool Coats with Cognac Leather & Wide Collars

100% Long Champagne Wool Coat jacket with cognac honey leather cuffs buttons and extra wide collar, matching mom, handmade, couture, black suede over knee boot

This year, Gigi and I are wearing the new coats I have available for sale in my  A N A G R A S S I A  shop. (Read about last year’s annual “AUNTIE & ME” matching wool cashmere coats here.)

Both coats are fully lined with polyester lining or tencel. (*Tencel is a sustainable & cellulose fabric which has a great weight & drape. It’s also breathable and warmer than other lining fabrics.) The enclosures are made from genuine leather cognac buttons. With the exception of the...

SHOP the BANDED ADULT TUNIC (Ochre & Ivory)

deep gold ochre green tunic cape blouse

Shop new tunics on website here or on Etsy I’m very excited to announce the release of my first ADULT manufactured product! This tunic design is a combination of everything I desire in a tunic: ochre and/or ivory colors, covers the back hips and butt, boat neckline, fitted ¾ sleeves, tighter around the shoulders, not transparent, heavier in weight, and does not look like a maternity top. There are 2 layers of fabric for the bodice. This gives the top a clean neckline, smooth finish, beautiful (and heavier) drape. (Also I think the tunic looks better in person than in photos!) Have you ever worn a tunic and felt like you were...
