Go Behind the Scenes of Floralia

Ever wonder what goes on behind the scenes of Evgenia's beautiful photo shoots? I always love how dramatic our final images are (just take a peek below), and it's always a treat to be reminded of just how much fun we have when photog Kelly Puleio picks up her camera.

These final images are a far cry from the behind-the-scenes shots I captured on my phone, a few of which are below. Who would have guessed model Emmalee was wearing galoshes the majority of the time? And that the weather was absolutely freezing, even in June? And that we were smack dab in the middle of tick season? And that designer John James spent hours putting together that gorgeous ribbon tree? In the final shots, Deavon and Emmalee made it look oh-so-easy, when the production was undeniably fun, but complicated.

Videographer Tim Prestoza of Low Tek Studios captured the video below, showing the true spirit of the Floralia shoot, my favorite with Kelly so far. Enjoy!

Holiday Shipping Announcement

If you're dreaming up a gift of Evgenia this holiday season, consider placing your order early, especially if you're not a US customer.

I'll be out of the country from November 27th, 2016 until December 15th, 2016, and while orders will be shipped while I'm away, I will be unable to restock styles that sell out. As I keep only a limited amount of stock on hand, I anticipate styles selling out quickly. My lovely retailer French Theft will be taking care of orders placed for in-stock styles, and will be carrying the entirety of the Evgenia collection in their boutique during my time away, so be sure to pay them a visit if you're in Los Gatos at 59 North Santa Cruz Avenue. Kate is a delight and will be happy to help you find your perfect gift!

Domestic orders placed after December 15th and before December 21st (and orders for out-of-stock styles) will arrive on time for Christmas delivery,  but please note that international orders placed during that time frame will require a postage upgrade to arrive on time.

Want to hop to it? Shop on Etsy or BigCartel, and thank you so much for your continued support!

Evgenia Lingerie in Vogue India, September 2016

Things are little quiet on the blog front, and that's because they're loud everywhere else, including in this gorgeous editorial "Hourglass Minutes" in Vogue India's September 2016 issue.

If you look closely you can see the Janus Ribbon Corset in Alabaster layered with other pieces, proving once again that Evgenia Ribbon Corsets are great for out-and-about styling.

Want your very own Janus Ribbon Corset in Alabaster? I have less than half a roll of ribbon left for this limited edition style, so you'd better hurry! Shop it here.

Innerwear Meets Outerwear: Sasha Maks Styles the Janus Short Gown

If you've been following Evgenia for a while, you know that one of my favorite things about lingerie is its versatility potential. A major facet of this brand's pieces is their ability to be worn not only in the bedroom, but out and about as well.

So needless to say I was thanking my lucky stars when blogger and stylist Sasha Maksutenko (who also runs the super chic Sasha Maks Vintage) talked about pairing the Janus collection with modern pieces to show their potential as outerwear.

We teamed up with local photographer Garry Alexander for Sasha's blog feature, a preview pic from which is above - make sure to check out her post in its entirety here, plus find out how to score free shipping on any Evgenia order until the end of July!

Fiber & Fashion Pop-Up on Nicasio Square, July 24th 2016

As many of you know, I officially left San Francisco for West Marin back in October. Part of the appeal of our new home up north is that it has a gorgeous little shop on the property, the future home of Evgenia lingerie. The only problem (a big one) is that it's quite a rustic little space with tons of resident spiders, critters and dust. Needless to say it needs a boatload of improvement (read: new roof, drywall, hermetic sealing) before I can officially call the space home for Evgenia.

That said, I've been dreaming of, at the very least, hosting some pop ups in my new space until I can officially call it home. The shop's previous life was as a sweet little home goods store, so it's got retail in its bones. So, I invite you to the first pop up at the future home of Evgenia!

Join me, my mother-in-law Alice Pickett Lewis of Textures Gallery, Lisa Anderson Shaffer of Zelma Rose, Marnie Jackson of Black Mountain Farm, and Rebecca Braun of Rebecca Braun Bowls for an event celebrating fiber and fashion!

I hope you'll pay us a visit and check out the bare bones of my new digs! For more detailed information about each artist and the event in general, please visit our Facebook invitation, and be sure to RSVP and invite your friends! Make it a full day event and hit up Rancho Nicasio's lively Sunday BBQ afterwards - you won't be disappointed.

Can't wait to see you there!
