If you’ve ever read the Washington D.C. based fashion blog, Fashion Is Spinach, you’ve probably wondered where on Earth the unique name came from. Elizabeth Hawes was a little known fashion designer that was well ahead of her time. Vintage expert Karen Augusta shares her Elizabeth Hawes treasures and her personal connection to the designer. Enjoy!

P.S. If anyone owns a copy of Hawes’ book, Fashion Is Spinach, I’d love to hear your opinion on it! I love vintage style guides.
