Joan Shepp Philadelphia

I went to Joan Shepp on Saturday for a Trunk Show (The designer being showcased was John Wind of Maximal Arts jewelry - stay tuned this weekend for a post of all the glitzy and glamorous baubles plus a give-away of one of his charming necklaces) and it was like I stepped off the streets of downtown Philadelphia and into the changing room at a Vogue shoot. There was so much to look at, touch, try on, admire (from afar), oogle, photograph, covet, etc. There was a great mix of locally designed clothing and jewelry, haute couture from Paris, Japan, London, accessories from Sweden, bags from Mulberry and Chloe, fuzzy sweaters from Sonia Rykiel, and sporty separates from Y-3. It was literally the best from a big department store like Barneys comfortably nestled into a Center City boutique. I. Died.

Here are some standouts:

Some of the great shoes, bags, and hats on display.

Charles Chang-Lima Multi Stripe Coat, $875

DL&Co. Skull Candle, $85

Beautiful Leather Gloves from Imoni Stockholm. No reason why winter colors have to be dull!
Fingerless elbow length gloves, $224.

And, my Piece Du Resistance:

leather vest/belt from Sonia Rykiel - I think it may be vintage because I couldn't find it online anywhere. Anyone know what season its from? How cute/useless is that little pocket?

Rhonda from Style Shepherd was also in attendance - we had a great time together! Turns out, we're birds of a feather, and had such a lovely time goofing around and drooling over the divine jewelry and accessories.

Here she is modeling one of my own designs/creations.

(Ignore my wonky face....!)

Hand-made Body Harness, $65. Contact me if you would like one.

Had a great time, and don't forget to keep an eye out for the jewelry edition, featuring John Wind of Maximal Art!
