Made in 2014
2014 saw a definite shift in style and approach with a focus on draping, looser fits and modern styles. I’ve always thought my style was rather random but looking through these 2014 makes I guess I if I had to describe my style in three words I’d say: feminine, modern, casual.
Lolita Gunmetal – sweet but a little bit sassy
Hats for all! Even the crazy children!
