Love to see how your wear it!

Of course most of the fun of making clothing, is seeing how our fans wear it! So here it is! Morgan sent us this of her outfit for work. So cute with flats. She ordered the skirt two inches longer because she's very tall and that kept it work appropriate. Beautiful! 

Until next time, I'm designer dreaming.

Happiness and Watercolors

So here is our latest creation. Also, I wanted to talk about why I keep two separate blogs. First the blog explanation. I keep a blog right on our website,, and that is for our customers to keep updated on our upcoming designs, sales, and just general line information. I like to post things that we do like trunk shows and events. 

And then there is this blog. This is a less formal keeping up with Rum and Couture space for my family, friends, and of course customers as well. But the biggest audience I have had for this blog is the one it was originally intended for. The designer who is dreaming of one day making it big. I feel like I can speak more of the making it as a designer side of the line then of the line itself. I love to share with those who dream of designing clothes the way I'm doing it and hope to inspire others to follow their dreams as well. 

Moving on to this skirt. I love the water color print. I went searching for a summer floral a few weeks back because through customers and friends I got the idea that this is what they were looking for. Even though it took me a long time to find the right fabric, I think I found the perfect fit for this style skirt. The navy, white and green spoke to me of sailing on the water. 

I'm also happy to be working, not only because my production partner is amazing, but also because the space that we get to walk out on when we take sewing breaks. That is why that mannequin ended up where it did. I was enjoying the view so much I didn't see why she shouldn't too. 

Until next time, I'm designer dreaming!
