We fell in love with the general shape of the Miss Limestone right from the start but went back and forth on whether it should be a coat or a cardigan. In the end we decided there HAD to be a way to make it work as either one. As a coat it works well… Continue reading The Miss Limestone Coat/Cardigan
We have Birch and with its relaxed fit and quick construction my own closet is starting to show that Tundra has some competition.
This post is geared specifically towards the Miss Haze and things that matter to the junior miss size range.

Who doesn't love a good jean skirt? WE sure do so it was about time we added one to our lineup. Our hope is that it can become a good foundation for many Sofiona outfits.
