Return of the Essential Blouse


In the last newsletter we welcomed Jessica Comingore's brand new website The Elysian Edit.  This month we have the pleasure of partnering with her on the return of the Essential Blouse.  This updated version of our previous limited edition collaboration is even more wonderfully luxurious. The Elysian Edit says,

We’ve made a few updates to the blouse since our first run, including the quality and weight of the fabric, now boasting a rich, satin interior that feels wonderful on the skin. The silhouette and construction remains the same, with an elegant scoop back, and raw edge silk hems that only get better over time. The fabric is still pre-washed, and drapes beautifully on the body, making it the perfect day-to-night piece. I live in mine, and usually dress it up with some flowy trousers like the one’s shown here, or tuck it into a pair of casual jeans for a weekend out and about."

 For the full editorial and more photos.  To Buy, or pin for later,

It's such an honor to continue work with Jessica.  You will love the colors, photography, travel, and home articles shared on the Elysian Edit

Announcement LA

Announcement LA

Creative community thrives on shared experiences, and the new communal space Announcement LA provides just that.  Last month they hosted an amazing evening pop up with Got A Girl Crush online/ print Zine.  We collaged pages, drank Shirley Temples with maraschino cherries, and shopped pins, stickers, and zines.  Other events they've hosted include shibori indigo dyeing, candle making, beers and vinyl, and sculpey craft night.  If you live in LA, make sure to stop by at the upcoming LA Penpal Club on Tuesday March 29th.  We'll go analogue for the evening, and write birthday cards and letters galore.

There's plenty more to tell and share, so I'm hoping to see you soon, and hear what you have been up to.  Thank you very much for your continued support. 
Warmly, Jill
