You guys, I have to say how much I enjoyed hosting this giveaway. Your comments, stories, and passion for what Elizabeth Suzann’s brand is all about really made me smile. I feel like we’re all kindred spirits in this way: valuing a company that conducts itself with such grace, beauty and human decency. I know the team over at Elizabeth Suzann read many of your comments and I hope they loved them as much as I did. With that being said, I’ve selected a winner at random. The winner is…

…Samantha! I realize that there are multiple Samanthas, but the winner has been e-mailed. Thanks to everyone who entered.

something fresh

You know that thing that happens when a new piece of clothing comes into your closet and, all of a sudden, the piece next to it looks shabby and even a little gross? That’s what happened when I slotted this new boxy tee from Everlane in next to my old striped tee. I could instantly see the drastic difference between the two. The Everlane tee has more vibrant stripes and the material is thicker. Now, the other tee had been in my wardrobe for a while, but I’ve always loved the high quality materials that Everlane uses. Not to mention the fact that their clothing is ethically made AND it’s offered at an affordable price point. So, it’s a little sad to say that my old tee had to be donated, but I think it’s for the best. And who doesn’t need a little something fresh in their closet every once in a while?

In case you guys haven’t noticed, I’m on the hunt right now for a great work apron or smock. I’m finding myself covered in shmutz after a long day at the jewelry workbench. Metal filings and dust from sanding can absolutely cover whatever outfit I’m wearing. So I think it’s time to find a cute apron to keep things civilized around here. I have a few requirements. The first is POCKETS. It needs to have some serious storage capacity for the various tools I use throughout the day. It also needs to fit my phone (for Instagram and Snapchat updates), various writing implements, my glasses (which act as goggles when I’m drilling), and maybe a small notepad. I already introduced you to State the Label Smocks, which I’m seriously considering but I also love these simple Japanese-style pinafores from not PERFECT LINEN. This apron has no closures, which I love because sometimes you just don’t want to button a button or tie a tie. It has four pockets, which is great for the above reasons. And it’s a great price point ($54). And it’s linen. And it’s handmade. Shall I go on?

empowerment

The knitting needles have been FLYING over here. There’s something that feels so empowering about making your own clothes. I feel the same way when I make a piece of jewelry for someone, but making a piece of apparel feels just a bit more impressive to me. What I’m trying to say is that I made the knit tee you see in these photos. It should also be noted that my dad took these outfit pictures. He’s pretty good, right? Look at all the angles he captured! What a guy.

elizabeth suzann giveaway

I recently challenged myself with a task that I didn’t realize would be a challenge until I actually sat down to do it. While chatting with the team over at Elizabeth Suzann about a giveaway for my lovely readers, I told them that I would feature my top three favorite Elizabeth Suzann pieces in this blog post. I felt up to it because I have been a long, LONGTIME fan of Elizabeth Suzann and I have a pretty nice little collection of her pieces. I should have said I’d select my top ten favorites, because it was hard to whittle this list down. But I’m learning the art of editing and curating, so here it goes. Oh, and you might still be freaking out about the whole giveaway announcement that I just casually slipped into this blog post. Information on how to enter that giveaway is below the pictures. ;)

So here it goes, my favorite Elizabeth Suzann pieces of all time:

1 // Any and all of the Georgia styles. See what I did there? Instead of picking the Georgia Tee or the Georgia Midi, I put this first pick under the umbrella of Georgia styles. Curating be damned! But, seriously though, this style is tried and true. The Georgia Midi is just so perfect for summer. The cut is universally flattering and I love the variety of fabrics she nows offers this stye in. I have my eye on the linen midi. The tee literally goes with everything. Everything. I’m not overstating that. It goes with everything.

Georgia Midi in silk…the first Elizabeth Suzann piece I ever purchased!

2 // All the Marlena styles. Again, I’m bending the rules so I can talk about all the pieces in this style. This is my blog, okay? I really love the versatility of this style. Wear the tank or the dress with the v-neck in the front or back. No nonsense, everyday wardrobe perfection. The dress you see pictured below is actually the Vera Slip Dress, which was discontinued, but the Marlena Midi is a very similar option that would do just fine in my book.

3 // The Harper Tunic. This piece is beyond comfortable and, again, I’m so excited about the variety of fabrics that it’s now available in! And let’s talk about the pocket. Who doesn’t love an oversized pocket? As a jewelry maker, I’m constantly using a variety of tools, so the pocket on this tunic is a perfect catch-all. Yep!
