Writing about style, design and all things that catch my eye!

Perfectly imperfect and casually luxe; these are a few of my favorite things.

Take a peek at the latest Prairie Underground!

Moto Hoodie

Fall 2011 Collection by Prairie Underground-- inspired by hand made clothing, uniforms, and distressed garments... I think I see a bit of the back-to-school look going on, too. From the mind of Davora Lindner, a Fine Arts grad and former sculptor; to that of Camilla Eckersley, a fashion industry pro with degrees from both Evergreen and the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandizing--- you'll see that they're putting their smarts and the arts into their
 edgy/chic styles! Learn more as you read along....

Don't you want in on this look? I have no idea what took me so long, yet in the last year, I have finally become a convert to the Prairie Underground line of clothing. The three pieces that I own have carried me stylishly to fashion shows, weekend markets, cocktail parties and even a middle-school parent night. There's a little something for everyone in their designs. You'll notice that some pieces are definitely structured; while others are certainly not. The delightful fact that they can often be mixed & matched is a bonus to your entire wardrobe-- especially when you need to pull together outfits quickly.

In a way that'll make you want to kiss the ground, these clothes are also comfortable, durable and washable. These thoughtful co-designers met in Nebraska in the 1980's, and have since carried their early influences out West to Seattle-- to the delight of a city that thrives on having eco friendly, local choices. In each of their collections, Prairie Underground has utilized sustainable fabrics such as hemp and organic cotton. They also help support the livelihood of a diminishing trade of local sewing contractors. There's so much to love...
