Susannah came by my studio last year wearing an awesome large brimmed hat and told me about Freda, the new shop she opened in Marfa, TX. I’ve always wanted to visit Marfa and then she told me about all of the hot springs in the region – sold! A special piece of trivia: there is only one perfume brand sold in all of Marfa, and it’s MCMC at Freda.

Michelle is the owner of Pretty Mommy, an online boutique which carries covetable goods from lines like Odette NY and A Peace Treaty, bags from Claire Vivier, and unique home furnishings. She’s been a strong supporter of MCMC since her shop launched, and sweet as pie during every interaction. The thing I like most about working with Michelle and Pretty Mommy is her instagram feed – her kiddos are impossibly cute!
