Summer flew by this year!  The other night, I had to slip a jacket on before I went outside.  Just a week or two ago, I was in the pool! While I’m not ready to say goodbye to warm summer nights with friends, I am ready for some new inspiration and projects! Our designers have been busy all summer and our team has been attending photo shoots all over the area preparing to bring you new and fabulous designs.  You may have seen a few pictures on our facebook page of the gang at a photo shoot.   Fall trends are showing Americana themes and vintage styles.  Mid-length skirts are on the runway right now and they pair so well with a traditional boyfriend or Icelandic sweater.
