……….I know many of you have been patiently waiting for the BLACK LACE JACKET , A233652, to return, and it should be available by my May 16th show……or maybe a little soon as reorders seem to show up earlier. For those of you who already own it….you know how handy this little light weight, unlined cover-up can be. For those of you who won’t show there arms, but sometimes suffer in the heat wearing jackets…..this is HEAVEN SENT. It gives just enough coverage but is still cool and comfortable to wear. The fact that the lace is SUPER SOFT adds to the comfort………………It was a natural for me to put the jacket over the BLACK RAYON/SPAN TANK DRESS with the HIGH LOW HEM, A253405, shown above…..This is perfect thing to wear for ANY  special occasion.. For those of you who own the HEMP FEATHER JERSEY, PANT, A233976, it is still avail in some regular sizes…..that also looks wonderful with the Black Lace jacket. The petite pant is completely sold out in the Hemp color. Naturally, the HEMP TANK works perfectly too, but that is completely sold out too. The HEMP FEATHER JERSEY MAXI skirt is another option…..if you own it, because it too is completely sold out. I only bring this up to inform you that if you own it…..it works beautifully……if not and you are looking or a top other than black or ivory…..the DARK TANK WK V-NECK TANK, A233942…..looks fantastic with the trim, and with the Hemp Feather Jersey……………I have accessorized the outfit above with my Jet and Bronze 72″ glass faceted bead necklaces and the matching drop earring……………just to add a little SPARKLE………………scroll down………………….enjoy……………………..much Love……………………………………Louis

TAN COTTON SATEEN ankle pant, A254640. coming in May, works perfectly too.

The Palm Fronds are here!

As many of you know the Palm Frond short necklace and earrings have arrived. The long one shouldn’t  be far behind. The pictures aren’t too wonderful as many of you have pointed out, and if someone doesn’t look at my blog and see the sneak peeks they may wonder why they are more expensive than other Linea pieces………these pieces are very labor intensive, and that costs money. Each frond is a separate piece and then they are all put together, so each frond is totally articulated and have movement similar to the fish pendant. The necklace has five fronds! The original had seven and was approx. $250 in 1992, so I think these are very fairly priced for what they are. There weren’t many made so I hope those of you who truly want them……get them…….I know when you receive them you will fall in love with them……..be sure the compliments will  come.
