I am in Santa Cruz to ship Fall 08. It has been 2 weeks and the production is still not ready. Needless to say it has been two weeks of anxiety and frustration. Everyday I think I am going to drive over the hill and pick up the whole load and start getting the boxes prepared. Instead I call and they are not ready. But somehow I can’t manage to then go on a bike ride or swim in the ocean or hang out with my gramma. I just feel paralyzed and miserable.

The one highlight which mixed work with pleasure was the Friends of Filly try-on which happened this last Sunday. I convinced my manufacturer to atleast give me the over-stock inventory in time for the scheduled trunk show. And thank god they did. From 1pm until 6pm a steady stream of women came by, striped down, and gleefully tried on clothes. It was the best! I got to see all my girls- including my cousin and my cousin-in-law, my dear friend Kate from Spain who came all the way from Sausalito, and a birthday entourage for Amy From the Northcoast. Not to mention “The Regulars”- Idit, Elena, Talya, Emilyn, Stacey, Tiffany, Zoe, Jane, Katie and Lisa. We were just missing Sarah Knight!

I have so much appreciation for the women in this town. I feel incredibly supported and loved by them all. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

    It was lovely to see you too! Hope your last few days in town weren’t too stressful.

    I love your Fall collection so v. much! I’m from West Los Angeles, but I was in SF visiting a friend and I ran into my other friend Zoe R. (do you know here). The first thing i said was “I love your dress (the underground dress)! Where did you get it!” She wrote down your info so I could look it up, but alas you have no shop in WLA/Santa Monica/Venice. I will be on a search! Next time in up North for sure! Just wanted to let you know your work is beautiful.
