Images from around the Studio

When I haven't blogged in a while you can be sure it's only because we're crazy busy around here...and I can be sure that I've just lost a huge portion of readers who'd given up on me - thought this was just another blogger's graveyard...
Well, it's not a graveyard - although there are many heavenly things happening around here,
like these white Trops for Spring. :) See, samples like these and others below come in the studio and I shoot them then a million things take me away and nothing gets posted. 

 Here's Saehee with the 8" white trop.
 Cute Saehee with the 5" Trop. 
 The blue suede tote...
 A pile of striped totes before heading out to Anthropologie
 Here's a special order tote we made for someone out of Trop leather. I love it and we'll make it again for sure.
 Masculine and chic and refined.
 Special order yellow Weekender - it's sooo happy, wouldn't it be fun to travel with this? We'll add this to line for sure too!!
 Silver Sac Bretelle hanging next to a Heather Levine mobile before it was sent to Japan - the bag, not the mobile. The mobile is still available at the store along with other exquisite Levine pieces. 
 OMG CANDY colors!!! Striped Pochettes for a store special order - I'll let you know as soon as they are ready for you...
 These are just to die for, I'm sorry now you must die...(JK!)
 Here are some pochette samples that pulled up to the studio - we're testing colors and recipes for the ink. I want these particular ones - yellow, orange and blue to go to a certain store: Steven Alan opening in San Francisco in early November, I don't know why. I just think they'd be cute there. By the way, the Steven Alan store isn't privy to this vision of mine but if they don't take them we can find another home. :)
 These pink, white and black striped Pochettes shipped to a very cool, brand new online store which I guess I can't tell you until Monday. That's what they told me.
 I can only tell you that this is a store you're going to love...I have high hopes for it!
 Look who stopped by yesterday:
 CARLOS
 Yea, that's right his name is Carlos. Don't wear it out.
I think he and I are going to be good friends.

I am so in love with all of those bags esp the new colour way pochettes. I can't wait to find out where I can buy them! I don't suppose you know what stores those striped totes for will be available in? I desperately need that in my life!

Also, I like that your blog is quality over quantity!

Didn't give up, thought you were getting your haircut fixed :) Love the white trop, the yellow weekender, and the striped pochettes. Awaiting the arrival of my Wren/Vivier leopard clutch, and of course, of FALL! So tired of 90 degree weather. If it continues, I'll get the white trop and carry it now!

Great color! I'm thinking of red for my next CV purchase. But I can't take my eyes off of the blue suede...

The 'yellow weekender' is beyond FUN! I'd love carrying that thing around.
I love all of your designs, so pretty yet functional, I made a link to 2 of your clutches, and your blog in my post seen here:
