getting ready for the carolina cup!

i can hardly believe that it time to start making dresses for the cup. four years ago i started making custom dresses out of my house. i made flyers and dropped them off at the greek village here at USC. i thought maybe i would make 10 or so dresses. boy was i wrong.... all together 78 dresses were made at the kitchen table. it was so exciting... at this point i knew that i would never return to the corporate world as long as God continued to bless me with customers, fabric and design ideas.

here is the cup flyer for this year:
the girl is the picture is an original water color sketch of our newest style. i really appreciated travis's help with the drawing and the layout. the concept of italian travel art appeals to both of us so ... ta da!
here are a few of my favorite dresses from years past...

i love when girls send me pictures... all of the dresses in the photo below are one of a kind laroque.

here are few from the southern living carolina cup party...

looking at all of these pictures from the past is so rewarding... i am so thankful for all of my customers. their interest, support and friendship mean so much to me. i am so blessed to love what i do and to have LaRoque.

back to organizing, ironing... ordering... designing cup hats... tagging new dresses... and of course helping you with your cup dresses when you come!
