Often when I am working, I am so deep in thought and concentration that I don’t realize just how connected I become to my creativity. In the moment I stand back and look at what I have made, I am always a little surprised, in the best of ways, at the final outcome.
My friend and San Diego clothing designer, JennaferGrace, (@jennafergracious on Instagram) invited me to showcase a few of my La Zingara Designs pieces this past week on her live internet show. While I can honestly say that it is not in my nature to want to be in front of the camera, it is made all the easier when you are surrounded by your supportive and loving friends. I’d like to sincerely thank all who watched and supported JennaferGrace’s fabulous show. I am truly grateful for all of you!
JennaferGrace is a San Diego native who grew up in Pacific Beach with her glamorous modern grandmother. She was exposed to art and travel at a very young age, which planted the seeds for her vintage inspired designs with a nod to modern chic. JennaferGrace’s designs are casual-chic and print happy! This translates into unique pieces that have such amazing silhouettes.
JennaferGrace is well known for her limited edition Kimonos and head wraps. Her amazing designs can be found at Château Bel Age, Le Bel Age Boutique, Bad Madge &Co., Swirl Boutique, and also Sea Hive Station, where she has a beautiful space, all located in the San Diego area. The JennaferGrace Collection can also be found at Wolf &Badger, which is a destination to discover independent designers, located in London, NYC and now, Los Angeles. @wolfandbadger on Instagram

Friendships are so important! Spending time with JennaferGrace this past week lent itself to a moment of introspection. I went in search of a few photos over the past few years and was instantly reminded of so many beautiful things to smile about.
One more bit of La Zingara news before we move on: The Wave Handbag has been flying off my sewing machine. Sadly, unless I can source more of this fabric, I only have enough to make one more bag. So if you have an interest, the time is now. This handbag is soon to become a collector’s item and there are only a handful of them in the world! I never even had a chance to put this on the Shop Zingara page. So leave me a message if you have to have one!
I have been very blessed in my life to share wonderful experiences with both family and friends. The encouragement, support, help and unconditional love that is part of my daily energy always encourages me to believe in that little bit of extra that Life has to gift us. It is in the moments when the seemingly impossible begins to take shape in reality, that I just know I’m on the right path. So even when a change of plans is necessary, I always remain true to my goals.
“Where will La Zingara take You?”
