You say business, I say busyness

Whew! We have been BUSY lately! 

Our new website design and our partnership with Dansko are part of the reason our phone is ringing off the hook. It also has to do with heading into fall–flip-flops are fading out, and people just want to dress up more. Plus, fall weddings are getting quite popular!

And then, there was this awesome segment on KING5 News last night, which featured our new 2014 Edition 12th Woman design, and pretty much blew up our website in the process.

It’s been a great, sunny Seattle summer, and we can’t wait to see what fall has to offer!

Life’s a Beach

It’s 82 degrees and sunny in Seattle today, with a pretty splendid ten-day forecast ahead. We’ve had the windows open and the fans on high in the studio all week, and the paint is taking just a little longer than usual to dry. Summer! Three months ago, weather like this seemed like an impossible dream.

In celebration, check out these happy beach-themed clogs. So what if sunny and warm only lasts a short time here? Your feet can be at the beach all year round.

Happy Tuesday!
