Pyne & Smith is one of my favorite dress companies, let me tell you why.
Joanna, who is owner of the company, is dedicated to ethical and sustainable production of her dresses. Her dresses are zero-waste, which means that the scraps left over are donated to recycling facilities to be repurposed, and she gives them to schools, quilters and crafters. So cool!!
Joanna's dresses are made with 100% flax linen. She gets her linen from other ethical sources.
Pyne & Smith dresses are made California by Joanna and her incredible seamstresses.
I own two Pyne & Smith dresses and my favorite thing about them is their versatility and how comfortable they are. I own a black dress that I wear when photographing weddings, and then a very summery one that I could easily dress up or down. Pyne & Smith dresses look flattering on everyone. I feel like I can truly say this because I've photographed these dresses on many women, and each one looks like they were made for the dress. GO check out Pyne & Smith, her dresses are worth every penny you pay and more. Be a conscious consumer, and know WHO MADE YOUR CLOTHES.
*As usual I did a collaboration with some other wonderful brands for this photoshoot. Read between the images below to see the brands and products.
Pyne & Smith just added button downs and skirts to their collection. There are so many ways one can accessorize the button down, with or without an ascot, and skirt, with or without a belt.
