Magnolia Pearl A Love Story

 Life can be funny, it is easy to receive great joys and the richness of simplicity merely by humbling yourself to any given moment… such as love at first sight.
  Recently while roaming the streets of Austin attending a local art show wearing my favorite Magnolia Pearl duds I was actually stopped by several women who all asked the same question "Where did I get my outfit?" 
 One woman shouted "Oh! I am in love!" with great admiration in her voice and immediately proceeded to touch the fabric making sure to mention she was an extremely "tactile" person, stating "I see better with my hands…" It made me stop and think… yes, I am too. 
 I so love Robin Brown's designs. Everything is created with romance in mind. I think the reason Magnolia Pearl clothing triggers such a huge, palpable reaction in so many women is because most of us are ardent romantics at heart… all the way to the core.
 It is an undeniable fact that beautiful clothes can transform a person and how they feel about themselves. Robin possesses the capability of capturing the true essence of a woman's heart. 
Among other things I use my computer to transport my messages across time and space to share with you, Robin chases rainbows weaving wondrous garments out of moonbeams, she constructs day dreams in linens and spins stories in lace all the while existing with one foot in this world and the other in a magical world of her own creation.
 As an artist exposing your work to the world to be judged can be intimidating. When I put my Magnolia Pearl armor on I can go about my merry way feeling less vulnerable and ready to rule the world or at least my little corner of it anyway!
  Choosing artisan wardrobe allows you to live like an artist… comfortable in your own skin and with others eyes upon you. 
Thank you Robin, you are a generous soul who is truly blessed with a servants heart to be so devoted to creating such beauty. Thank you for sharing your lovely Magnolia Pearl world with us!
