Louise&Co. Feature + Styling

Today is a very special feature of my friend Kate Block and her shop, Louise&Co.  Kate's shop offers custom studded shorts as well as men and women's vintage clothing! Kate is such a sweet and talented lady. I was so impressed with her selection at the Columbus Spring Flea. She was by far my favorite vendor! I love going from booth to booth searching for treasures. I left the flea with an adorable pair of Lousie&Co. shorts and a yummy buckeye cupcake from the mobile cupcakery. 
The day was quite a success!

I see a tremendous future for Louise&Co, Her custom cut off shorts are a must-have! Check out her Etsy store and like the facebook page to get the latest scoop!

Get to know a little more about Kate and her fabulous shorts! 
CD: Where did you get the idea for Louise&Co. and how did you start your shop?
KB: I wanted to get involved in the online business world, as well as having a creative outlet, which turned into me creating handmade jewelry for my Etsy shop. Soon I realized making jewelry wasn't for me. So I went back to the drawing board and tried to think of things I enjoyed doing that could evolve into an Etsy business. I have always enjoyed thrifting and this love and ability to give vintage clothing a new purpose is what created Louise&Co. in October 2011. The name Louise&Co. came from my middle name, Louise, and hopes that one day I may be big enough for the company(or "Co.").
CD: What do you hope for the future of Louise&Co.?
KB: I feel like there is a lot in store for Louise&Co. There's so much growing that can be done and I work towards improving my shop everyday. I'm really excited because I have been talking with local boutiques and getting involved with craft shows. I think there is a lot of potential in those areas and I'm looking forward to seeing that play out. Eventually it would be my dream to have Louise&Co. become a brick and mortar store. A girl can dream! 
CD: You have so many amazing shorts, what's your favorite pair that you've created?
KB: It's hard to decide which pair is my favorite, since each pair is truly unique. However, this pair is a pair of mine that I have been eyeing for myself! ha!
CD: How do you style your shorts?
KB: I think these cut off shorts are so versatile because they can be dressed up or dressed down. They are definitely a staple piece for the summer wardrobe. For a casual look, I like to style them with vintage T-shirts from my shop and combat boots to give the outfit a truly unique vibe! To dress up, pair them with a nice button down blouse and a simple sandal strap heel and you are good to go. And the best part is they can transition to colder months with a pair of tights, a shirt and parka- then you are good to go!

I decided to style my pair of Louise&Co. shorts with a crochet top, oxford flats and a flower for my hair. I thought a vintage pin-up girl vibe would be perfect for the cut offs!
