OOAK Knits | The Montmartre Sweater 

The Montmartre Sweater

Inspired by the fashion forward city of Paris. A study in color brought forth this muted hazelnut tone that reminds me of a weekend spent walking underneath the eiffel tower, drinking wine at street side cafes, eating tasty pastries, shooting film, people watching on the train and lazing around a tiny apartment with balcony windows flung wide open to let out the sounds of Tracy Chapman and Billie Holiday cd's...

Yarn origin: Richmond, Va

If you'd like to invest in this piece and be the owner of it's unique story you can do so by heading to the shop listing for it below


You can also see other OOAK Knits and there stories here.

Why one-of-a-kind?

These pieces are inspired by...
the places i’ve been,
the people i’ve met,
the words i’ve read,
the images i’ve created.

All of which are unique, to themselves, their own, one-of-a-kind. 
Much like you are.

I believe that your clothing, what you wear, says a lot about you.
It adds to your story, your make-up, who you are as an individual.

And so, shouldn’t those pieces in and of themselves hold a story all their own?
I think so.
That’s why my knitwear is one-of-a-kind. 
Each design is a piece of art.
Each piece tells a story. 
Of a person. A place. An experience. An idea.
When you own one of these pieces you are the only one to own it.
Aside from me, the creator, you hold it’s story. 
You are now the caretaker of it’s story. 
And it, in turn, becomes a part of yours.
The Stories The Things We Own Tell.
I think they're terribly important, though often overlooked. 
I find that the things we invest in are the things we cherish and value most. Which in turn speaks to what kind of individual we are. What we put stock in. Who we want to be.

Travel Dates | Europe
My Happy Place via  Instagram

I'm super excited to announce that I will be hopping a plane to EUROPE in two weeks! 
This year has been a whirlwind of traveling and adventures and I've been loving every minute of i, to say the least. I actually can't really adequately express the excitement I have for this trip.
A post with some late night thoughts on that is probably coming soon...

But in keeping with the new travel dates announcements (if you don't know what those are you can read the explanation below), I wanted to let you know that if you live in Europe, or are traveling there at the same time as I am and would like to book a photo shoot, please contact me because I would so love to work with you! 

I will be starting in Ireland, but I will be in Europe from June 15th-July 1st!

Or, if you have suggestions of things to do and places to go, I'm all ears for that too.
Feel free to comment below or shoot me an email to talk about it!

So something that I'm going to be introducing here on the blog is Travel Dates posts! 
These posts will be little announcements of when I have travel dates set for places other than Richmond, VA and depending on my availability you can contact me and hire me for a photoshoot during my travels! 

Because while, yes, I totally can and will come to you for a session wherever you're located, if you see that I'm already going to be near you during a certain time it'd be more cost efficient to go ahead and book a shoot then while I'm already planning on being in your area!
Make sense? 
Plus, I've decided to, at least for the remainder of this year, offer my photo sessions booked during travel dates at a discounted rate!
What's not to love right?
There will actually be a section of the site specifically for Travel Dates, but I'm still working on that so until then you can check them out under the tag!
