One of my girlfriends sent me a picture of a guy on tinder who she thinks I'd find attractive. He was definitely a looker but seemed low on substance. I've never gone on a date from tinder. It's just not for me. Even with my age range preference (I'm 39), it seems the men on there are still emotionally unavailable and a wee bit immature. Boring. #tinder #singleforever #imokwiththat #ilovemyowncompany #doestinderactuallywork

Watched Legends of Tarzan tonight while designing some NEW swimwear. Tears every time a cgi animal died. Also, Alexander Skarsgard gets me a bit emotional.

Throw back to last spring with my friend @blackribbonsociety! It was a good day and a happy memory in the midst of a period of hard struggle, coping with loss. I wish I could hug my past self and tell her that everything was going to end up working out just fine. Relax. Find your helpers. Work hard. You will be better than fine. Happy to be surrounded by such fantastic humans, to have such a great support system and missing @blackribbonsociety!!! #ahappyday #survivor

Just some more of my previous design work modeled by one of the sweetest humans I've ever met and a favorite collaborator, @megan__renee. Shot by Nathan Onsurez, who is ridiculously talented. This was my first swim collection, back in college. Never stop learning!

My wife @switchbladewitchling in my Seattle inspired two piece. Those are tiny water drops! I miss Sayer. Little did I know when I designed this suit that I would be moving back to Seattle in less than a year. And here I am today, California dreaming. #bonsoirbella #bikini #modernretro #retrobikini #retroswimsuit #vintageinspired #bustier #highwaistedbikini #highwaistbikini #seattle #seattledesigner #fashiondesigner #pinup

Throwing it back with @poppy_del modeling my Beetlejuice inspired maillot design! I LOVE this suit so much and frequently think about re-releasing it!

My driver is listening to this, and he's also not trying to chat me up. My day is freaking made! #ironmaiden #runtothehills #runforyourlife

Just a circus inspired swim bustier I custom made for a client a couple of years back. I miss this fabric!!! #bonsoirbella #swimwear #bustier #swimbra #swimsuit #bikini #circuseverydamnday #circus #harlequin #shitido #fashion #fashiondesigner

Word. And sometimes, you just gotta take out the trash. I feel free. Finally. #goodintentions

My little Boston terrier is getting old and having accidents in her kennel when left for more than a couple of hours. Poor little thing is now going to have to wear diapers when I go to work. But at least she'll be able to have nice, clean, comfortable bedding to lay on. I'm trying these first but interested in hearing about people's experience with reusable diapers. #whendogsgetold #oldfriend #olddog #poorlittlething #bostonterrier #preservingdignity #sortof #dogdiaper

Why can't we all just stay home and snuggle??? @amispin #isittimeforadayoff #bostonterrier

This rain and this winter is seriously getting to me. I may need to take a vacation away from this place for a bit. Get some sunshine in my world and see if there's any life left in this cold, dead 🖤. #seattle #rain #needsunshine #overwinter
