Meet Me In Palm Springs

Just got back from a fun filled family trip to Palm Springs. I love this place so much that one of the new Juliette Sunshine Spring/Summer ’15 collections drew inspiration from the bright colors, retro vibe and tropical heat of the Palm Springs desert. I’m finally getting ready to debut the new collection & new website I’ve been working on the past few months.

Here is a sneak peak from the new collection & some photos from our trip for inspiration. We will now be offering hand crafted & limited edition dresses, t-shirts & skirts in Girls sizes 6-12.

Hope you have a beautiful day!

GETTING INSPIRED #8 – Punk Rocks!

Lately I’ve been daydreaming about  the new Punk-Chaos to Couture” exhibit at the MET in NYC.

Even though I’ve been living on the West Coast for years now, New York is still my home town and most favorite city in the world, so it kinda felt like I’d be able to just jump on the subway for a quick trip uptown for the opening day (May 9th), instead of being all the way on the other side of the country & just reading about it online. I first discovered Punk Rock style as a kid growing up in NYC & something about it completely resonated with my inner rebellious streak. My friends and I liked to watch the Punk Rockers hanging out in Washington Square Park and on St. Marks Place after school. Later, I began to borrow bits and pieces of the style to mix with my strange “DIY Mod Girl via Thrift Shop & I wish my boyfriend was in a band” look. And years later, while in design school, I fell in love with Vivienne Westwood, and all the anti-establishment angst that she was able to incorporate into her designs.

Even though I’ve been though so many style changes over the years; & now my current look has become more “simple, pretty, Cali-vintage Mom living in the ‘Burbs” than “edgy, gritty, NYC fashionista“; there will always be a piece of my heart somewhere that belongs to Punk Rock.

Since it’s set to be one of the new trends for Fall 2013, I’ve been checking out some of my new & vintage pieces to get nostalgically inspired again…..
