Summertime Blues

It's official...Summer is coming to a close.  I'd like to think that if we had seasons, the leaves would start changing any day now.   But to celebrate the beauty & style of my favorite season, I HAD to feature a local designer who could capture it all.  Jenna Sato is a recent UH Manoa graduate & has been designing for a year.  She's inspired by "classic elements of the 1950's but having a fun playful vibe".  I named this entry "Summertime Blues" from the 1958 song by Eddie Cochran for 3 reasons:  1. The season's ending.  2. The colors of Jenna's collection here translate (to me) like the perfect blue sky on a summer day.  3. She & I clearly love oldies :P  

Jenna's favorite piece here. "I love fit & flare styles, & the sheer panels in the sleeves & hem are a nice touch".  The dainty design made me want to accent it classically.  I chose a milky opal/white statement necklace....GORG. 

This is MY dream dress.  Simple, clean, & stunning.  Double click any picture of a bigger image.  There is a sweet sky blue chevron print to this dress.  Jenna loves to "mix old with new" so I paired my studded wedges & chunky lariat necklace to amp up the New.  

Gosh darn it, this look is flattering!  I didn't know a knee length skirt could look so good! I would like to share how it's well-balanced.  It's a sexy busier top paired with a chic modest skirt.  My #1 rule for keeping it classy is: To always stay balanced.


Jenna Sato can take custom order not only for the the designs here but anything.  Please contact her at  She hopes to have her own line out soon, Haus of Quirk, sold online first.  Keep an eye out for her people...I adore ALL her pieces.
