Last week I had the pleasure of spending time with Eva Spitzer, founder and designer of Peony and Moss, which offers a wide variety of artistic sock designs for women. Her best selling items are the thigh high socks. Where have these been all my life? I have the coldest feet and hands regardless of the season. No doubt I will become one of Eva’s best clients in due time.
Eva’s style is natural, feminine and practical. As a busy small business owner, she does not fuss over her appearance, yet she wants to look thoughtful and pulled together. She is an admitted lover of vintage and resale, which constituted much of what she wore the day I took her photos. A girl after my own heart! I love how she juxtaposed a feminine floral shell and cardigan with an androgynous bronze snake print driving loafer, a nod to her willingness to dress and think outside of the box.
For more on that, I love the look she sported the first time I met her in late February at a MeetUp she started: I am in love with her bright purple high/low pleated skirt, and her hair neatly pulled into a bun. Yet look how how she threw a polar opposite jacket on top of it as if to say, “Don’t even try to figure me out!” Or perhaps she is very cold-natured like me, and this is her warmest jacket. Either way, it’s fun and unexpected as style should be. Well done, Eva!
More Seattle street style coming soon. Have a fabulous, fashionable week!—Bethany
