Inspired by ’70s elegance and effortless beauty, the fall/winter 2020 collection for this Houston-based womenswear line features transitional pieces for summer to fall. Christy Lynn imagined a woman like Bianca Jagger, walking through the streets of Paris in the 1970s. Exuding confidence, she chases her dreams with grace. Available for purchase online and at Tootsies in Upper Kirby.
As we hit month six of the coronavirus pandemic, there’s still a lot of hesitation to venture outside our homes and visit with loved ones.
