An ideal balance of sporty and sassy – Beauty Bomber Jacket

Let your strength, integrity & wisdom shine through in BLUE…⁠ Confidence is contagious when you feel comfortable in your clothes. We loved Charlie in Top Gun, but our heart belongs to Amelia E. An ideal balance of sporty and sassy: subtle sheen of sateen shimmers in the light. Inside is a cozy jersey that makes the Beauty Bomber your go-to piece and an unexpected play when paired with the Perfect Pencil Skirt or the Sublime Pant. Who knew test pilots were so polished?

Do you remember getting dressed to go out and it was below zero but you just didn’t have that perfect little jacket to go with that look? This is the answer… wear it with a dress, wear it with jeans, wear it with the sublime pants or where it with the perfect pencil.

As a designer I like to play with the juxtaposition of unlikely fabrics in uncommon silhouettes. It’s a fun play on glamour in a relaxed silhouette. This jacket is a ideal example that you can dress-up or dress down. 

Kickin off another new day – Sublime Pant

How else to describe the first spandex leggings pumped up to high fashion but with the word sublime? The pant hugs the thighs and waist like a glove, yet falls to a loose flare below the knee to dispel any notion you just came from the gym.

Designer Inspiration

You know when you go out to dinner and after the meal you have an immediate urge to unbutton your pants so you can breath and you try to figure out how you can make it out of the restaurant without redoing the button and you rationalize if you could strategically place your purse there so you don’t have to….

I believe in classic wardrobe essentials. I believe in investment pieces you can wear all year long and are virtually trendless. I believe in looking good and feeling better. This is what we achieved and when I say “we” I mean the patternmakers, the fit models, the sample sewers and the countless patterns, samples and fittings to bring you our staple pant. Long live the Sublime Pant!

The Most Essential Ingredient to Wellness = Water

November is National Healthy Skin Month, a time to refocus on how we can keep our body’s largest organ healthy! The skin is made up of cells, which are made up of water. Simply put, without proper hydration these cells cannot function at their best, resulting in dry, tight and flaky skin that is prone to wrinkling. Maximizing hydration has the potential to reduce wrinkling and puffiness, improve complexion, and tighten skin.

Drinking water can increase energy, relieve fatigue, promote weight loss, flush out toxins, improve complexion, and aid in digestion. We could go on, but for now we’ll just say that good water is essential to your health and fitness.

9.5+ pH alkaline water Perfect Hydration (pH) was designed to support your body’s natural pH of 7.4 to achieve a healthy, internal pH balance for glowing skin. Purified to its cleanest form by a 9-stage filtration process, pH water also includes electrolytes for premium hydration and a delicious, crisp taste in every bottle.

Every day, the human body’s pH balance is weighed down by highly acidic foods like coffee, dairy, and meat. Drinking Perfect Hydration™ 9.5+ pH Alkaline Water helps to effectively restore and rebalance the body to optimum pH levels. Purified to its cleanest form by a 9-stage filtration process, then enhanced with a proprietary blend of minerals & electrolytes for Perfect Taste, this alkaline water is ionically charged to a pH of 9.5+ for Perfect Hydration™.
Hydration™ 9.5+ pH, 9x filtered, and made with electrolytes so it tastes great and makes you feel great, too. This holiday, it’s the time to introduce the best water to your family. Let’s be healthy and be better for the coming new year!
