the souchi story

Sunday, February 28, 2010


in this months elle there is a great article on natalie merchant under 'intelligence-music'. i love her, loved 10,000 maniacs and loved a concert back in the day where they opened for r.e.m. and i was wearing levis cinched at the waist (please, you were too back then!!) with monkey boots and a stripe t-shirt.

well, the article ends with this quote:

'.....i'm still wearing the same clothing i was wearing 30 years ago. The cardigan is eternal! That's my theory.'

we at souchi agree that the cashmere cardigan is eternal. and on a personal note, i'm still wearing levis and stripe t-shirts 30 years later...on a hunt for monkey boots.

waking up to terrible news. sadly, this morning alexander mcqueen was found dead in his apartment. so sad to imagine he was only 40 with so much life left to live. i will miss his personality, shy smile, beautiful clothing and gorgeous shots from runway shows i wished i could have attended.
i will always remember the pirate collection and the first pair of pants i bought from his line.....mens trouser style, high waist with the widest legs possible! i loved these. were they right for me? no, i'm 5'3. but who cares, they were fantastic and wearing them made me happy.

rest in peace alexander.
you will be dearly missed

i am having a very long accessory moment! in fact, i keep buying more and more for the store.
which brings up that i have received emails with people confused about the souchi store & if it carries other things...what?

to clarify.....souchi, is the collection i design and knit for almost 13 years. six years ago i moved to portland and opened up the souchi store. the intention is to create my fantasy closet that will work back (easily!!) to my knits & re-vive favorites.

check it out to find: ports 1961 (LOVE ALL), bruce (ny cool), genetic (the answer to NEVER EVER wearing sweat pants), thea grant (truly makes me want to wear rhinestones and teddy bears...see above and you'll understand!), christina lehr (the best tanks & tees), jjr (the most amazing line of understated cool), deadly ponies (awesome leather) and many many more.

this month 20% off all sales on-line to start your addiction.

-new choker from thea grant! complete with rhinestone bow and dangling dancing bears!
-new souchi must have: the getty turban in pink lemonade w/ layered page sargisson necklaces
