The Made In Dilemna

Posted by Alaina Williams
For me, being a small independent designer, located far away from the fashion capitals, in Atlanta, Georgia - following through on my idealistic goals of manufacturing a locally made product has proven next to impossible. Initially, we searched and searched throughout the US to source certain areas of production, but when weighing the costs of machinery, supplies, labor and basically everything involved in producing my product, we were eventually led to seek manufacturers in...

i'M oBSESSED With Luxurious Silk

Posted by Alaina Williams

My personal closet is full of beautiful silk blouses. Cream, White, champagne, red, fuschia.....It feels so soft against your skin and you can rest easy knowing it's natural. Some silk has a satin high gloss finish, some presents a sheer shimmery chiffon, and then others come with a more washable light cotton-like texture. Some brands have found a nice versatile and easy-fitting style by adding some spandex for stretch. I enjoy all types, but those that require dry-cleaning do not favor my wallet. I would like to find a nice pair of silk pjs that didn't break the bank. Abby Essie's got a beautiful selection of excellent condition silk blouses coming your way in an array of sizes and colors, INC, Moda, Talbot's, Casual Corner, Barbara Bui - from "NWT" to gorgeous "like new". So check back in the next few days as we list new inventory, to grab the best selections!

What's your most FAVE clothing item?

I have this black dress by Cynthia Rowley that I have worn and washed quite a bit for the past year. It has silver studding which has not come off during numerous washing machine adventures and the fit is fabulous. It is a black stretch material that form fits my bustline and waist, while giving me plenty of skirt space. I have dressed this dress up and down, from a nice dinner, even a hot Florida State graduation ceremony with heels - to the Isle of Palms beach with flip-flops. I can wear it with, or without a bra, which says something since I'm a 34DD. It has pockets. The only con about this dress is the back zipper, which is difficult to zip to the top by myself. I can wear it to the grocery store or for drinks. This black dress has gone with me on every trip I've taken this past year, or so - about 8, I think. My family is probably tired of seeing it. It's the only item by this designer that I presently own, but you can bet, I'm looking for more of her gems. This is quality design at it's best.
