When Bottega Venetta calls, you answer. This is exactly what Jess Brown did when her dream designer called and asked her to create life-size rag dolls for his window during NYFW. Jess, a designer from the small town of Petaluma hit it big when she started creating handmade toys for her children and out of her desire and hope to create meaningful keepsakes for her little ones spun an international business and success story. We have been in love with her dolls since we first laid eyes on them at The Podolls store and now we have our own original TMP Gypsy Doll Giveaway and DIY tips to be shared on making your own doll on Style Me Pretty Living.

Inspiration for me comes from different places. Flea marketing is a big one for me…
