Today we present…
Gretchen Scott Designs
From the minute I laid eyes on my first Gretchen Scott tunic, I was a smitten kitten. Her bright colors just make me happy all day long. Her tunics are the perfect choice to pair with your favorite white jeans. This has turned into my hip new momiform that I am proud to sport daily in carpool, PTA meetings, girls nights out, business meetings, beach cover-up, the list goes on. Gretchen’s tunics and dresses go with everything and transition from day to night seamlessly.
I absolutely adore Gretchen’s mantra:
LAUGH MORE.. GRIPE LESS.. IGNORE CRITICS.. SAY YES.. ORDER DESSERT.. LOVE LIFE..
Finding inspiration from her travels across the world, Gretchen’s’ designs reflect a global perspective. “India is a big part of what I design. The Indian sense of color, proportion and incredible embroidery is amazing. Gretchen travels there often. Indian simplicity informs even the most complicated design elements. Hand printed, festive fabrics and vibrant inks define Gretchen Scott Designs’ look. Our colors are true and often times intense.”
Enjoy this Lookbook of a recent trip and photoshoot in India.
