Welcome to the world of ellebee206! Beautiful clutches and scarves handmade in Seattle, Washington by Elle Batingan. We are so excited to share the story of ellebee206 and how Elle went from making clothes for her Cabbage Patch Doll as a kid, to now selling out of her beautiful clutches faster than she can make them!

Her gorgeous clutches and scarves are perfect for last minute holiday gifts or for New Years Eve. We are absolutely planning to pick up a few for our friends and family. (And of course just to keep!)

We recently had the opportunity to ask Elle a few questions about the story of ellebee206, which we are so excited to share today, plus a very special offer for Story of My Dress readers!

Altuzarra for Target is here!

Monday, September 15, 2014

And it's here! The Altuzarra for Target Collaboration has launched! 

I stopped by the Seattle City Target yesterday (on the day of release) to check out the goods. I had planned to only shop this collection online at lanch, but promptly fell asleep at 11pm (grrrr), and then of course, we slept through our alarm.  When I checked the Target website when I finally woke up (tired was I) everything was still available, so I decided to chance it and try instore. My BF and I finally made it to Target at 10.30am. Having just moved from the Bay Area in California, I expected it to be fully picked through. But to my surprise the area was empty and everything was available in all sizes!!! Yes!!! For the first time, I had my choice of Anything and Everything! Fashionista in heaven!

Stripes in Summer

Bonjour! Oh J'adore stripes in summer. There is just something about a little striped top and denim cutoffs. Think Jane Birkin in Paris. So French. Oh la la. 

California Dreaming . . . Joshua Tree

Paris Daydream

The Perfect Summer Blouse?

Wednesday, July 9, 2014

Is this the perfect summer top? We sure think so! Such a pretty coral color. Perfect for layering at the beach. Wear sleeves rolled up or down. Buttoned or unbuttoned. As a top or tied around the waist. We chose to wear ours to the Moss Beach Distillery on the California coast for a late afternoon glass of lovely California vino. Hello summer!

Glamping at Costanoa

Tuesday, June 17, 2014

Whether you choose to walk along the beach, enjoy s'mores by the fire, hike, dine at the restaurant, or relax in the outdoor hot tub; this blend of nature and fine luxury is the perfect escape. Glamping at Costanoa, just south of Half Moon Bay along the California coast, is an easy drive from San Francisco. 

California Dreaming . . . Santa Cruz Boardwalk

Oh Santa Cruz Boardwalk. You are so pretty. We are dreaming of you today . . .
