My name is Hannah, in the real world I’m a friend and fan of the Petiole girl. In fact, on my best days, I’m a kind of Petiole girl myself — doing my own thing, being inspired by the world around me and taking it easy. On all my days, I am a fashion addict.
When I first saw the Petiole line, I felt like so many of my fashion questions had been answered — how do I look effortlessly elegant/cool/generallygood/ puttogether?! Petiole’s silk tops, bottoms, jumpers, dresses and undies do this. Effortlessly. And isn’t that what makes a great look? I find that when I look my best, it is completely by chance. The more time I spend fussing, trying different things on and taking on and off random accessories, the less comfortable I feel in my clothes.
After trying on the clothes and loving the idea of the Petiole girl, I wanted to know more about the line and get involved in any way possible. So…here I am, in Petiole of course…
To introduce myself, here are a few of my favorite things (besides raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, of course…)

Look for coming posts from me…I’m here to stay.
