Home from NYC

We spent Mother's Day at Pip-Squeak Chapeau in Brooklyn for a trunk show featuring our handmade, custom fit shoes. Owner and designer Sveta Dresher's lovely boutique is filled with her simple and elegant linen clothing line. After a busy afternoon of meeting customers and tracing feet, Sara and I did a little shopping of our own. For our upcoming Budapest adventure, Sara chose a beautiful simple grey linen wrap dress that will travel nicely and look elegant for day or evening. I got caught up in the new world (for me!) of linen towels. Very absorbent, lightweight, and quick drying too! Sveta has several different patterns to choose from and I got a combination of baby blue, black and red to try in the Guest House and also my own home. I also picked up a gorgeous slate grey shawl that will work great for travel and keep me warm on planes.
A fun time was had by all and we look forward to spending more time with Sveta in her shop. A very busy and creative mother of two who is charming and inviting! She'll be carrying a nice selection of our shoes at Pipsqueak Chapeau. Customers can purchase these samples as is or order their own custom fit pair.

  1. I am interested in photographing cordwainers. Would you be interested in being a subject of a photo essay?
