Studio Pullover - Joie de Vive, means the joy of life and happiness, this mantra is really Kate Spade and really me. On a classic grey pullover this is simple, sexy and cool.

Jessie Top - My staple, I wear blouses all the time, I don't have to explain their versatility, they're just so easy. I'm so proud of this print, it is not too hot or cold but perfectly bridges the Kate Spade style with my own.

Pardon My French Tee - The name first came up when I was working on my web series but I was a little worried about it and the connotations behind the phrase. Then, when I was working on this collection 6 months ago it immediately just seemed right.

Dylan Skirt - The print and shape of this skirt is strong but you can wear it with anything at any hour of the day, a jean shirt and flats or heels for the evening. Whatever the time and styling it is always joyful!

Lipton Earl Grey Tea - If I want to sit down and illustrate, to get inside myself, focused and inspired, I play some music and sit with a cup of earl grey tea, my favourite is by Liptons, I have tried many but that is without doubt the best.
