the white serpent

Just wanted to mention this first: we're having an end of season sale in our online shops (here and here): enter code FREESHIP at checkout for free shipping on your order. This sale will be in effect for a very limited time! We have also added prints of Geoff's fog pictures, if you're interested.

Ohhh, how I love this collection: Lover's The White Serpent, Southern Hemisphere S/S.
If I could wear any clothing label exclusively, it would probably be Lover. While it's all very pretty and girly, it's not too young-looking, not overly saccharine (to my mind, at least), and the colour pallete is just perfect... one of each, please. Oh yes, please yes.

You guys are THE BEST. x

Jane Flanagan, Rizie, Hopscotch: Should I trademark the crotch card? Haha.

Darcy: So glad you like the denim tote! Thanks for the kind words.

DEADWEIGHT : Thank you! I'm glad you like it. I usually whip these things off and don't ask for feedback from anyone, so I never know if it looks good or not (except to me, ha).

mackenzie: Aw, thanks! I would never stop handwriting my notes, though... even if they're hard to read I really enjoy them.

Nataly: I got them through Vistaprint. They're okay, quality-wise -- I'm sure there's better out there... and thank you!

kittenmasks: Ha! "Crazed" is definitely a good word for it. Thank you!

Juli: Did you get my email?

Brodie: Yes, it's never quite right, is it? Always something... with the logo I just made, I didn't realize until I had it printed on a giant poster that it didn't look quite right. Ah well. Thanks for the kind words!

Alyson Redding: Good luck with it! It can be daunting. I really do cringe when I think about the early days...

Caitlin Rose: Ha! Thank you.

caroline: Aw, so nice! I love to hear about people keeping the little paper bits!

hila: Well, I hope that if you do order one one day, that you love it & that you find it worthwhile! Thanks for the kind words.

amyolsonjewelry: Wow, that's so nice to hear! Thank you.

Katie: That is pretty cool! Thanks for telling me. I wish I had gone with the tote to Bath!

Junaluska: Yes! I love getting mail so much, personally!

Renee (eatliveshop.com): Thank you! Aw, that's too bad! I did meet a couple of blog readers... always a blushin' good time.

  2. Beautiful collection. The cape style shoulders on the red dress and the neutral top and skirt to the left are my favorites.

    I totally agree about Lover, everything they do is gold. I could quite happily have my entire wardrobe filled with their label. I love all the feminine drapes and peachy colours here, they look so flattering.
