holiday attire

I love this series that Sadie Sabin started over on her blog, simplysadiejane, called Holiday Party Dresses.  This one happens to be my favorite one so far (i’m not biased or anything), in which she is wearing our moto vegan jacket. The skirt is pretty amazing too.  It’s from Shabby Apple, you can find it here. If you get a chance pop over to Sadie’s blog and get inspired!

Come on, Fall!

blogblk cardiblog1cherry blossomdresstua top1We are anxiously awaiting Fall, here in California.  It’s been REAL warm.  I do like it, but at the same time, I also like brisk mornings and chilly nights.  That being said, Love Threads has a few new Fall arrivals, that are definitely worth checking out…

Patricia Nash Designs

LeCumbre-Postcard-Graphic

I always love being contacted by designers that are new to me, and have quality work.  As many of you know I was in the fashion industry for years, and now have my online store.  So, I can really appreciate quality workmanship.

Patricia Nash Designs, is based in Knoxville, TN.  Her love for traveling is shown in her work.  Her products are 100% authentic handcrafted Italian leather.  You can find them nationwide, or at Patricianashdesigns.com

Here is a little bit about the designer…

What is your background?  I have been designing, selling, and marketing handbags and other accessories for other brands for over 20 years. First I was focused on licenses with Warner Bros. Disney, to private brand development for American Eagle, J Crew, and Ann Taylor to name a few.

When did you start designing?  I started designing and making wedding cakes to support myself in college to then designing kitchen products, children’s products to handbags and small accessories nearly 20 years ago

What other things do you design besides handbags?  Small leather goods, luggage, belts, hats, and boots. We look forward to expanding our product line as Patricia Nash grows as a brand.

Price range of handbags? $99-299

How would you describe your line? European Old world craftsmanship for today’s woman

What do you do outside of designing? Management of the business, still serve as Pres of Company-  mother of 2 and grandmother of 6 – still decorate cakes for family members. I love cooking, travelling and appreciating any type of old world craftsmanship.

Has designing handbags always been your passion? Designing and creating something in general sharing it with people has always been my passion whether cakes, food, bags, or a flower arrangement.

Patricia Nash Store and Macy’s La Cumbre Invite Customers to “Shop For A Cause”

 Patricia Nash is set to open its first ever shop-in-shop on Saturday, August 23rd at Macy’s La Cumbre located at 3805 La Cumbre Plaza Lane, Santa Barbara, CA 93105. The new boutique, which will be a 400 sq ft. space located on the 1st floor of Macy’s handbag department, will offer a vast selection of handbags and accessories from the brand. At the opening of the new shop, the brand’s designer and founder, Patricia Nash will make a personal appearance from 12:00 – 3:00pm.

 In tandem to the unveiling, Patricia Nash will be participating in Macy’s “Shop For A Cause” event. Customers will have a chance to buy a $5 pass one week leading up to the opening, which proceeds will go directly to support March of Dimes, a leading non-profit organization which funds research for healthy pregnancy and baby health.  In return for purchasing the $5 pass, customers will receive a 25% off discount on all Patricia Nash merchandise on Saturday, August 23rd. In addition to “Shop For A Cause,” Patricia Nash will offer other in-store incentives for customers.

Chloe + Isabel

Chloe + Isabel is our newest sponsor.  They have some amazing jewelry, with so many easy to wear pieces.  Also, you can’t beat their prices!  I’ve known their rep Ruth for a long time, she is a doll.  There are so many great gift ideas. I know being a new mom it is nice to have the convenience of internet shopping and finding something REALLY cute, especially when you need a gift for that hard to find person.

Here are just a few pieces that I have my eye on…

Bohemian Rhapsody

Hi! It’s been REALLY quiet around here.  I’ve been enjoying our new little addition, and we have had family in town.  Life couldn’t be better.  I never knew something could bring so much joy to my life.  Wow!

Love Threads has also been busy with all of our new arrivals.  Items haven’t been lasting long, so I wanted to post some of our newest ones.  Bohemian seems to be the gist of this season.  I like it!

Shorts!

Short shorts are definitely making a come back.  If you don’t feel like you have short worthy legs, they always make for a cute pair of pajamas.  Love Threads is stocking up!

They also look cute paired with a military boot, or the popular Sam Edelman petty boot.  Something being added to the shorts this year are the pom poms. Done right, the look is great.  I’m not going to lie, I’ve seen some scary ones. Ha!

Here are a few pieces that have started to arrive…

kimonos

Kimono’s: There is something so simple and easy about throwing on a kimono. They make every outfit look stylish and fashionable.  I love throwing them on with jeans and a t-shirt.  It’s easy and you’re out the door in a minute.  Something we could probably all use a little help with.  They also make great cover-ups.

Love Threads just received a few different ones, and I love them all.  Here is a look at the newest styles…
