ok...... seriously..... has it really been 7 years since we moved into the mixie studio? before the studio it was 3 years of using borrowed and shared space to run our little business! wow.... happy birthday to our cute little space. thank you to all the stores we work with.! here is a picture from moving day 2004.
our friend morgan shared these pictures of her sweet and lovely whirlwind trip to italy with her love.
she took along her mixie cameron dress in our super cute 'wuthering' print. morgan is an adventurous free spirt. she works at a really amazing and inspiring marketing firm in laguna beach, rides a harley in her free time and takes incredible trips with her boyfriend. aren't ya itching to get the wind in your hair and pack a suitcase with cute dresses for a trip to the italian country side? i am!
morgan you are so cute! thanks for sharing these pictures! ooooh we wonder what other fabulous adventures our mixie dresses are on right now!
we just love how she packed her collection of mixie dresses. count them..... 6! she rolled them up in her suitcase, pulled them out, gave em a shake & and headed out to dinner at sunset!
now as we said before her life on the yacht can actually be a lot of hard work. sailing the open crystal blue seas, jumping into the warm tropical ocean........ haha! no really she does a lot of menu planning, cooking and takes care of all things kitchen related. that includes planning elaborate meals using the local cuisine. also planning for the food supply when they sail from spain to the bahamas (for example).
but when this foxy lady is not working away she's playing and frolicking in her mixie dresses!
so we have this girlfriend who has the most adventurous job we've heard of. she basically gets to live on vacation and travel the sea with people who can afford to hire a crew for their very own private yachts. she'd correct me for calling it 'vacation' since she swears it's actually hard work. but the pictures and the places she goes are incredible...... they scream vacation! white sand beaches and even private islands. she's a culinary genius and all around beautiful girl. knows way too much about fine wines and makes the most delicious mouth watering treats. in fact she's exactly who you'd want if you did own a private yacht. to top it off she's super style-y and before this amazing journey, she had a clothing label out of san francisco.
why am i going on and on about this PYT? (pretty young thing) well she has told me on several occasions just how perfect mixie dresses are for traveling. we actually hear that a lot and love that about our dresses. we thought it would be fun to send her off with mixie dresses as she sails the open seas and beach hops all over the world, the bahamas, the caymans, the cape, nantucket, spain, france and on and on and on........ aren't you sorta wishing you could get away from your computer and see what the sun feels like on your shoulders at 5pm in the galapagos islands? check back here to see the adventures of
mizz B at sea
we'll see how she spends her time off and where she wears her adorable collection of mixie dresses!
my little bitty girls trip to the ace hotel and swim club was oh so refreshing! my BFF and i hit the road and were able to catch up on long fun conversations that the everyday speed of real life just doesn't allow for. penelope was a little sweet heart angel.... slept the whole way there and the whole way home. we had lots of yummy food and soaked up the soul soothing desert heat..... mmmmmm palm spring nights are so wonderful and so warm!
warm evening and mexican food! yum!
cutest trees ever! kelly green trunks and florescent yellow flowers!
