The Terra Cotta Woman takes pride in where she comes from. She spends this July searching for distinctive pieces that are sure to become family heirlooms. Her selective eye spots classic silhouettes in great quality sustainable fabrics. What’s old will always become new again, and the Terra Cotta Woman looks forward to seeing her wardrobe worn and appreciated by the next generation one day.
Let’s take a moment this month to appreciate the simplistic nature of the past. There once was a time when all flowers were grown from seeds, all tomatoes were heirloom, and one would save money all year to buy the perfect summer dress that has now lasted twenty.
It’s all about fine quality fabrics and fantastic tailoring. Think about the outfit that Audrey Hepburn wore on the back of the scooter in Roman Holiday. These are the foundation pieces of your wardrobe, pieces that you will wear again and again and someday pass down to your grandchildren. The Terra Cotta Woman knows that in a culture of disposable quantities, classic design and quality fabrics remain the definition of true sustainability.
“The best thing I know is to do exactly what you wish for a while”
-Dr. Bonnachoven from Roman Holiday
