NEW exclusively at Beklina
The ERMIE Bokeh Print Dress in 100% Washed Silk. 
Slips on, no closures, comes with a detachable matching sash. 
A reissued print from the first ERMIE Collection in 2010, it is a photograph of light filtering through quince bushes outside my bedroom window.

Also at Beklina...there are still a few silk tank dresses in the striking Raku Print (I wish I would have made one of these for myself...it would be perfect for a scorching day like today!)

Big Sur


I saw a shooting star, and made a wish. I dreamed that I kissed Bob Dylan. I had a massage in a room that overlooked the ocean...the sound of the waves seemed to correspond with the hand movements of the masseuse. I was naked in the hot springs and felt totally at ease. I sipped a glass of wine, as I read on the cabin porch, while my husband sat next to me and played guitar...a perfect moment.
We could see the Milky Way at night. There were quail, deer. The marine layer was unearthly. I met Angelina for lunch and we took in the view at Nepenthe. I had one of the best meals of my life ...cold pea soup...grilled lobster...butterscotch pie... The mountains glowed pink as the sun went down on the day of my birth. The best. 

Stay: The Little Gem at Heart Circle Mountain
Go: Esalen for Massages and a soak in the Springs

Some shots of around the studio...a new studio outside of my home!! I'm sharing it with a friend. I've also made a new friend, Ola, (last photo). I'm still in the process of moving in...but I couldn't be more excited.

The next collection is taking shape, I'm turning 39 in a few days, & working, working, working...but taking a break this week. I'll be away for the next few days & not really accessible via email or phone; please note that all orders received on 8/6 will ship out 8/10 at the earliest. (Thanks!)
More to come...
