One of my favorite graphic designers is Vol. 25. Every time she comes out with a new template I instantly say it is my favorite (& then she comes out with a new one and it’s my favorite). I LOVE that she uses some of my images as inspiration and within her examples. It is just so cool to be able to see my work highlighted like that :) She just came out with a new template called ‘Twig‘…
If you get over to order it by tomorrow, you can get it for 50% off!! And even better than that?? She is letting me give away a template to one of you!! Just enter through Punchtab below :)
Last, but not least, we are offering 20% your Wander Clothing purchase as a little “Yay for being featured!” celebration. Just enter ‘eyecandy20‘ at check-out :)
Spent some of spring break on a little get away back ‘home’. A little spot between Seaside and Astoria where the Columbia meets the Pacific. Every time I go back I am sent right back to childhood when I still thought the whole world ended just past the beach grass & jetty, right where the ocean fell off and met the sky…
I took a few minutes to shoot the newest Wander Romper in ‘Ocean’ (appropriately enough) with the new legs ties (perfect for those summer days running through the waves)…
AND I got an email from Vol. 25 while I was away… she just launched a new template with my images (yay!!) and guess what? She said she’d like to give it to one of you!! Just comment below and I will randomly pick a winner Thursday!!

I’ve been playing with the new clothing line a bit and I thought it would be fun to show you all the ideas I have for wearing the Lace Shift with Flare Dress (my favorite piece of the day). I would say this is our most versatile piece. It comes with a Flare Dress in your color choice (or choices if you add a second Flare) but it goes way beyond… I love that you can take any tank or dress from her closet and completely change the color scheme and look… you can dress it up (like we did in our Wander photo shoot) or dress it down for every day. Now… to figure out how to make it fit me… ;)
AND… If you purchase it (or any other Wander piece) by March 25th, you can use coupon code “laceshift15″) for 15% off your purchase!!
First, thank you so much for all of the wonderful & kind words about this issue of Dreamer. The emails and comments have been sweeter than we could have ever expected… to say that we appreciate the amazing support is an understatement!
I had one other feature in this issue I wanted to share. It was the finishing touch on another project I have been working on for the past several months.
I have been in business for 7+ years now… the girls that I work with have moved from sweet little girls to trendy tweens. Through the transition I have found it more and more a challenge to wardrobe & style the shoots with the options out there. There are a million choices for little girls and adults but getting that older (but not too old) look that these little ladies were wanting was frustrating. I love styling and you can regularly find me ‘altering’ pieces here and there, throwing unexpected items together and playing fashion designer in my own closet. So, when Lisa and I started chatting about this dilemma, a little idea sparked. Why not do up a line of our own? (Lisa actually went to school for fashion design making this crazy idea totally doable).
We asked our girls and I interviewed my clients. We found out what they liked and what they didn’t like. We designed a line that fits every function of their daily lives while still allowing them to look totally adorable & stylish (& stay super comfy, too). Every item has been tried and tested by our little ladies, tweaked until we got nothing but oooh’s & ahhh’s (the soft cotton used in these pieces actually had the girls commenting on the fabric… when do 10 yr olds do that?) All the pieces can be mixed & matched (which was another must on their list). I finally got what I had been searching for.
I was so excited when the line was completed just in time to incorporate in my shoot for Dreamer. I love working with this age group and with a little help from Jen (art director extraordinaire) & Michelle (my go-to hair stylist), this line allowed the shoot to come together beautifully.
Without further ado… our first Wander Clothing line. I hope you love it as much as I do!
