friends who make beautiful things

today I wore a sample top designed by Melissa who is building a brand around making patterns to sell (think butterick and vogue patterns), undergarment by pansy, jute slides from rosali Ilano, ring from nan collymore, leather bracelet from Matthew ready, earrings by kristen elspeth and veg tan leather bag by me. such a joy to wear goods by people you know.@m_elgomes @ilanodesign @nancollymore@pansyco @matthewready_objects@kristenelspeth #specialtydrygoodsstyle#friendswhomakebeautifulthings
