Modernless March

Day One of #modernlessmarch hosted by @pinsent_tailoring is: “What am I?”
I’ve been an Artist all my life, after I retired from being LA City Calligrapher, we jumped into Lily Absinthe full time. Our time is divided between our Woodland Hills house and our Victorian house in Tombstone, Arizona…and always with Angus and Fiona, our two fur peeps. Bringing old things to life is how I approach projects, old houses, old lace, old hats, old gowns, old sewing machines…they all need some love and a little magic. 🙂

 

 



Juicy Details…

Day Day 10 of #VictorianFebruary is: “Juicy Details” and there’s nothing like a bit of ruffly scandal to raise some eyebrows! The best details are usually hidden during a promenade. 🙂



More Corsetry…

Close up of that incredible silk before it leaves my studio. I found this in a small stall in Montmartre, there’s enough for three more corsets…so don’t wait too long to reserve yours… 🎄



Just In!

Blue wool from London’s Soho ready to go with my American Duchess blue Londoners…shipping dates were just posted for the pre-sale event! I have plans for a fin de siecle tailored suit (completely opposite from my usual style) once my December orders are finished.

 


Did any of you take advantage of the pre-sale? I was so excited to see color in the new designs, as much as I like brown…it’s not a shade that flatters me. What colors suit you? Share in the comments!

 



And Some Petticoats

Even in the heart of winter, my girly heart craves embroidered sheers over colored petticoats…this yellow one gives this dress a kiss of sunshine 🌞

We have a variety of designs and fabrics available for petticoats and you can find out more by contacting us HERE.
