new shades

Since I just slammed my favorite sunglasses into the wall and therefore broke the arm off... my loving man bought me a new pair. I picked out a dark sultry blue for this pair.... can't wait.


The Bolero Llama is reversible, lined with vintage kimono silk, and a very limited edition. I have made one already, and can make maybe two more out of this hide, with a total of three from this hide with this silk. They are $190 each. Contact me if you must have one.... I'll be making more out less expensive materials soon, too.


Baby Tuxedo: Isa

This is Yuvia's dashing son, Isa, modeling the tuxedo.

le LoOp was featured in the Savvy Shopper section of the Bend Bulletin a few weeks back! Anna Sowa wrote a very nice article explaining my product and a brief bio. It was perfect timing for Summerfest, as lots of people read the article right before the event and then came searching for les LoOps!

Norah's Hoodie

This is Norah, the chihuahua, in her new utilitu hoodie: I call this CHIC-huahua.


The Source Weekly Fall Style Issue coming soon!

My friend Kristi asked me to come up with something for the Fall Style Issue cover inspired by a handmade patch she found on iStock. This is the design I came up with, and what will most likely end up as the cover of the Fall Style Issue. My designs (specifically the Plaidmiral, baby tuxedo and le LoOp) will be featured in the issue. Keep an eye out - Fall Style issue out August 27th!
