When David & I first moved down to Austin, we were thrilled to hear an old high school friend of ours relocated here with her boyfriend a few years prior. Naturally, Ellen & Scott were our first double date once we got to town and we’ve had so much fun together since!
Ellen has always been super creative and entrepreneurial—I even bought one of her purses she made out of vintage fabrics from a boutique in our hometown, years ago. Now, Ellen runs a year-round resort wear label called Elliette. All the prints are designed by Ellen, reminiscent of vintage motifs and color palettes, and printed on Italian fabrics. Last month she launched her latest winter/resort collection and invited me to tag along at the photo shoot to capture behind the scenes moments. I fell in love with this top, so David surprised me with it for me for Christmas—the perfect dose of glam!
