The fabulous Lois Eastlund is opening her own boutique on the Lower East Side this week, and I had to give a shout out! For my book party, Lois made the most original gift bag contribution--she dressed dolls in her designs (a Union Jack dress, like the one in the window here) and gave them a tiny Violet in Private book to carry. How cool is that? You can see her lookbook here, and the next time you're wandering around Ludlow Street, stop by! PS-Thanks to Books with Wings for the reviews of Violet on the Runway and Violet by Design!
