Elisabethan: Clothes With a History
Confession: when I got the tip about Elisabethan: Clothes With a History out of Paonia, Colorado I was prepared to encounter some seriously hippy-type threads. But when I visited the classy website I was intrigued with the funky designs by Ms. Elisabeth Delehaunty. While there is some earth-kitsch to be found, most of the clothes are flattering and unique. Elisabeth clearly has a great hand for design and does a lovely job using the "experienced textiles" she discovers in thrift shops and second hand sales. Order one of her applique skirts and be prepared for some serious "Oooh, where did you find that?!" compliments. Thank you for the tip Margaret!
